Delivering a variety of bonuses to agents, the incentive campaign saw the top 100 travel partners receive £500 each, plus the opportunity to experience Celebrity Apex or Celebrity Silhouette for a day with a guest, and immerse themselves in Celebrity’s premium offerings, including a sumptuous lunch onboard. In addition, all agents received a £50 bonus for every five new bookings claimed, and new-to-cruise agents received a £25 bonus on their first three bookings.

An important agent program for Celebrity Cruises, Celebrity Moments provides an opportunity for the premium cruise line to thank agents for their hard work and commitment to deliver exceptional results throughout Wave. The top 100 agents were surprised with in store and virtual visits from the Celebrity Cruises’ sales team to create personal moments of celebration where winners were delighted with their prizes. In addition to the Celebrity Moments incentives, travel partners were able to earn on every booking with potential rewards available on all stateroom categories.

Claire Stirrup, Celebrity Cruises’ Senior Sales Director EMEA celebrated the news: “We are delighted to celebrate the success of our recent Celebrity Moments Winners, and the incredible response that we have received from travel agents across the UK and Ireland.

No matter their experience in selling cruise, agents have shown us unparalleled levels of support, and deserve to be celebrated! We look forward to welcoming travel partners onboard our ships this summer across Europe, with our extensive ship visit programme and seminars at sea; to inspire and excite them about what’s to come for Celebrity Cruises in 2024 and beyond.”

The countdown is on for travel partners to take advantage of Celebrity Cruises’ ‘Have it All’ campaign and unmissable flight offers ahead of the upcoming summer season in Europe. Agents have until 8th April 2024 for clients to receive up to 75% off the second guest on almost all itineraries sailing until 30th April 2026. Agents can also offer guests incredible deals on flights from just £1 per person, on selected sailings in 2024** from London Gatwick and Manchester, available to book until June 2024.

These tools will aid travel partners to secure more bookings, offering their clients a European summer getaway like no other with six ships, including two Edge Series ships – Celebrity Ascent and Celebrity Apex sailing Europe in 2024.
