Travel Agents Can Earn Gift Cards Deliverable In 30 Minutes Through Carnival Cruise Line

Carnival Vista.


Carnival Cruise Line has updated the point system on its travel-agent website, giving travel partners a chance to earn gift cards to retail stores and restaurants—and have them delivered within 30 minutes.  

"Agents will be able to select from more gift offerings that best suit their preferences and won't have to wait for cards to arrive in the mail," vice president of sales and trade marketing Adolfo Perez said in a statement.  

Other changes to the website make it easier for agents to view and track orders and their status, through “a more intuitive and simplified approach to redeeming their points,” Perez said. There’s also a newly designed ordering tool that lets agents create wish lists for their rewards and highlight “frequently viewed items” on the portal.  

Carnival has also upgraded the website for its Canadian travel partners, giving agents the ability to see rewards in Canadian dollar denominations.  

Rewards start with gift cards valued at $50 and $100 for points in increments of 10,000 and 20,000.
