The daily puzzle reveals ‘fun facts'
about ships and itineraries while agents vie for prizes
MIAMI (Feb. 11, 2019) — Tapping into the momentum of Wave
Season, Carnival Cruise Line has launched an interactive "Carnival Word Search
Contest" for travel advisors. The online game, designed to keep agents up to
date on Carnival's ships and itineraries, will run for 18 days, from Feb. 11
through Feb. 28, 2019.
Every day of the contest travel
advisors who visit Facebook.com/carnivaltrade can play along and find three ship-
or port-related terms in a word-search puzzle. Each time participants find a
word, a fun fact pops up with relevant information. For example, finding the
word "PANORAMA" yields "The all-new Carnival Panorama will take your clients on
a picturesque cruise through Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlán, and Puerto Vallarta
starting December 2019."
Completing the three-word challenge
automatically enters the agent in an instant daily giveaway for a $25 Amazon
gift card, as well as the drawing for the grand prize — a three-day cruise on
Carnival Panorama, which debuts in December. The more often agents visit and
play, the more chances they have to win.
"We've been releasing a steady
stream of news about our ships and itineraries lately, so we came up with an
easy, interactive and rewarding way to help our travel partners stay informed,"
said Adolfo Perez, senior vice president of sales and trade marketing for
Carnival. "There's a lot of buzz about Carnival in the agent community, and the
new Word Search Contest not only offers great prize incentives, but it's a fun
way for agents to gain the knowledge they need to successfully sell Carnival."
The grand prize is a three-day
cruise on Carnival Panorama departing Long Beach, California, Dec. 11. The
package includes airfare, one hotel night and $200 for travel expenses for one
lucky travel advisor.
Travel advisors can visit GoCCL.com and Perez's Facebook
page for details on
how to play. The Carnival Word Search Contest is open to travel advisors
throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada (excluding Quebec).
