For the third year in a row, Carnival Cruise Line is bringing back its AMP Up Commission Challenge for the 2020 Wave Season, where travel advisors can earn higher commissions of up to 15% based on the number of bookings they make between 1JAN and 30MAR, 2020. 

“Feedback from partners who participated in the AMP Up Commission Challenge the past two years has been overwhelmingly positive because it gives them an opportunity to boost their income,” said Adolfo Perez, Carnival’s senior vice president global sales and trade marketing. 

“The beauty of this program is that after ‘amping up’ sales during Wave season, they’ll increase their commission level for the rest of the year. Any program that helps our travel partners earn more is a win-win and at Carnival we remain committed to all travel advisors so they can keep succeeding.”

To participate in the program, agencies must register at during the opt-in period between 14OCT and 30NOV, 2019. Qualifying agencies will receive an enrolment confirmation email by 6DEC, 2019.

Once registered and confirmed, participants who make between 20 and 125 bookings during the three-month booking period will qualify for higher commission levels on sales for the rest of the year, from 1APR through 31DEC, 2020. 

New bookings that are fully deposited or paid in full between 1JAN and 31MAR, 2020, count toward the goal, with the exception of free cabins, reduced agent fares or full-ship charters.

Agencies that currently qualify for 10% to 14% commissions are eligible to participate.   

The commission levels and required sales thresholds are:


  • 15 percent commission, 125 bookings
  • 14 percent commission, 88 bookings
  • 13 percent commission, 63 bookings
  • 12 percent commission, 38 bookings
  • 11 percent commission, 20 bookings
