NCL launches new rewards for trade

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has a new agent incentive programme, Partners First Rewards, that recognises travel advisors for their ongoing partnership and rewards them for bookings made with NCL.

‘The pent-up demand we are seeing for our product and specially curated cruises makes us confident 2021 will present fresh opportunities for our partners,’ says Damian Borg, Norwegian Cruise Line director of sales Australia and New Zealand.

Partners First Rewards follows the recent launches of the AUNZ Partners First Facebook group and Book-A-BDM (business development manager) platform, which allows agents to book a personal session with their BDM.

NCL also recently re-launched its online trade portal and resource centre, Norwegian Central, comprising four main sections: Learn, Promote, Book and Connect – with Partners First Rewards set to become an integral part of the revamped portal.

Partners First Rewards  gives agents access to exclusive incentives, allowing them to earn points for submitting eligible, deposited bookings. Points can be redeemed for Prezzy gift cards, for example, with other rewards soon to be announced.

Through NCL Legends the line will continue to reward top selling New Zealand travel partners with a hosted sailing onboard one of its ships. Further details will be shared soon.

NCL will also recognise top agent consultants and agencies for their 2021 achievements by hosting dinner events in respective territories in New Zealand and Australia early next year.

For the programme’s first incentive, NCL is offering 20 points (1 point = $1) on all bookings placed between 11 and 31 January 2021 for sailings from December 2021 and beyond. Agents can register for Partners First Rewards by completing the registration form here:
