CRUISECO and World’s Leading Cruise Lines last month scaled the “Everest of reporting challenges,” completing a major tech project during this year’s cruising downtime to enable the live visibility of Cruiseco bookings with brands including Cunard, P&O and Princess.
The work was conducted in partnership with Princess and tech provider Odysseus, and means each of the World’s Leading Cruise Lines brands are able to capture all of the travel agent member details on every booking made through Cruiseco via the online platform.
The announcement came just a few days after Cruiseco reported it was also working to drive sales with Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) through a new initiative designed to deliver 3% upfront commission.
Only new bookings are eligible, however cash sales and future cruise credits are also applicable, with commission to be paid after the receipt of funds from Norwegian Cruise Line.
The offer, which should help boost the cashflow of travel agent partners, is also available until the end of the year on NCL cruises departing up to 2023.
