Carnival Kicks Off Travel Agent Trivia Contest


To celebrate its 45th anniversary, Carnival Cruise Line is giving 45 travel agents a $100 Visa gift card through its new travel agency trivia contest that starts today. 

Each day this week, Carnival will post a trivia question on its trade-dedicated Facebook page. The first nine agents to answer the question correctly will win one of 45 $100 Visa gift cards. 

“The cruise industry was built by our travel agent partners,” Carnival’s Vice President of Sales & Trade Marketing Adolfo Perez said in a statement, explaining that agents were the ones “who took a leap of faith with our fledgling industry in the 1970s. During these 45 years, agents have helped tens of millions of Carnival guests realize our founder Ted Arison’s vision that everyone deserves a great cruise vacation at a fantastic value. This contest is one more way of thanking agents for their tremendous support through the years.” 

The contest runs until March 10. 

Carnival is also asking agents to help celebrate 45 years by sending any “throwback” photos of Carnival ships or Carnival cruises that agents have taken throughout the years. Agents can join the fun by posting them to the Carnival Trade Facebook page.
