Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings has announced that all commissions paid to travel advisors will be protected as part of the cruise line's Partners First initiative. The cruise line has also extended the suspension of its voyages through June 30, 2020 for NCL, Oceania and Regent Seven Seas.
Commissions will also be paid on all new bookings made with Future Cruise Credits (FCC), said Norwegian's Chief Sales Officer Katina Athanasiou.
"As an added incentive, all bookings made using an FCC through May 15, will be eligible for a 5% bonus commission for you and an additional 20% discount off current fare, for all voyages October 1, 2020 through December 31, 2022," said Athanasiou.
Norwegian guests with current and active bookings from May 15 through June 30, 2020 will automatically receive an FCC valued at 125% of the fare paid.
"These future cruise credits will be issued by Friday, May 1, 2020 and can be applied anytime within one year of issue date and toward any Norwegian Cruise Line voyage through December 31, 2022," said Athanasiou.
Guests who decline the FCC can receive a 100% refund of the fare paid to be reimbursed to the original form of payment 90 days after the request for a refund has been submitted.
"All refund requests must be received via a web form provided by the company which NCL said will be made available from May 7 to May 13, 2020," Athanasiou said.
