Silversea Cruises on Thursday announced an extension of its advisor commission protection, along with some booking incentives for future sailings.
“Silversea’s travel partners are vital to our success, especially during the current pandemic. Over the past few weeks, we’ve asked our global team to reach out to agents directly to answer questions, listen to their feedback and discuss new ideas,” the line said in the announcement.
Silversea will pay travel advisor commission on all bookings for guests who have paid in full, regardless of whether or they choose to take a cash refund or a future cruise credit. For those on sailings through 2020, who choose to take a future cruise credit, advisors will earn commission on both the cancelled booking and the new booking made with the credit.
As part of the Royal Caribbean cruise family, Silversea earlier announced that its 48-hour cancellation policy, coined “Cruise with Confidence,” will continue through the end of 2020 and that the FCC will be valid for up to two years from date of issue.
And, to help advisors marketing to clients who have started their dreaming travel phase, Silversea is dropping its deposit requirements on suites by $1,000 on all new bookings made before June 30, 2020. The deposit reduction is in addition to another incentive, an onboard spending credit of $1,000, and a separate 10% savings for all sailings booked from Sept. 1, 2020 and paid in full by June 30, 2020.
