Silversea Cruises is continuing its support for travel advisors by offering a bonus commission, as well as including more voyages eligible for the special commission incentive.
The USD 200 (CAD 255) bonus commission is now available on all new bookings made through April 30, 2021, on any Silversea voyage departing on or after Oct. 1, 2021, through June 30, 2022.
Advisors can now receive bonus commissions on 275 voyage options—from the islands of Oceania, the rainforests of South America, and the unspoiled nature of Alaska to Asia's golden temples, the Mediterranean's ancient archaeological treasures, and much more.
“During these unprecedented times, we are proud to continue to support our Travel Partners with special incentives like our bonus commissions offer,” says Roberto Martinoli, president and CEO of Silversea.
The line has also enhanced guests’ flexibility by extending its Cruise with Confidence policy and its reduced deposit initiative.
The Cruise with Confidence program is now available for all bookings made by April 30, 2021. The program enables travel advisors to offer their clients flexibility on cruises departing before April 30, 2022, through the assurance that they may cancel their cruise up to 30 days before departure without penalties when selecting a 100% Future Cruise Credit for the amount paid.
As part of the Cruise with Confidence policy, if a guest tests positive within 30 days before the cruise, at the boarding terminal, or during the cruise, or if a guest is unable to meet their cruise or is denied boarding due to government-mandated travel restrictions within 28 days before the cruise, or if a guest is subject to mandated hotel quarantine upon their return home, the guest will receive a 100% Future Cruise Credit or a 100% refund for the total booking amount.
Silversea is also extending its reduced deposit promotion. The reduced deposit requirement of only 15% per suite is now available for any new booking made on or before April 30, 2021. The reduced deposit applies to all Silversea voyages departing before April 30, 2022, except for full World Cruises and Grand Voyages. Guests with a Future Cruise Credit can also use their credit to take advantage of the offer.
An Early Booking Bonus is being offered when booking a voyage departing on or after June 1, 2021, saving up to 20% when they reserve and pay in full by March 31, 2021.
“We also hope that our valued partners benefit from the flexibility offered to our guests through the extension of our Cruise with Confidence and reduced deposit initiatives,” Martinoli said. “A demonstration of our gratitude for their continued support, these initiatives are our way of recognizing our Travel Partners’ ongoing contributions. We look forward to strengthening our already strong relationships in the coming years.”
