Agents to Share Unique Best Practices and
Professional Experiences as Part of Contest Judged by Cruise Industry Leaders;
9-November 5, 2017
MIAMI (October 9, 2017) –
Carnival Cruise Line is offering travel agents the opportunity to win a $10,000
cash prize, cruises and inaugural celebrations aboard the new Carnival Horizon,
gift cards valued at $250, as well as branded "Travel Agents Rock" prizes as part of its new "Keep on Rockin"
sweepstakes, which begins today and runs through Nov. 5, 2017.
Each week during the contest period, Carnival will ask agents to demonstrate
how they "Keep on Rockin" as travel agents with a question shared on Vice
President of Sales & Trade Marketing Adolfo Perez's Facebook page. The contest
is designed for agents to showcase unique best practices and professional
experiences with industry colleagues. Travel agents may participate in the
contest by sharing examples through photos, written descriptions and videos,
all of which will be reviewed by a panel of industry leaders and Perez. Winners
will be selected based on criteria including creativity, originality and a
Carnival "fun factor." Five
winners will be selected each week and will be notified by a Facebook post. A single winner for the $10,000
cash prize will be randomly selected from the 20 total weekly winners at the
end of the promotion. All of the final 20 weekly winners will win a European
cruise aboard the new Carnival Horizon during her inaugural season on a
seven-day sailing departing April 15, 2018 from Barcelona, Spain. "One of the
highlights of the ‘Travel Agents
Rock' program has been seeing the many ways travel agents use their
creativity and sales savvy to sell cruises with such great success," said
Perez. "We wanted to showcase some of the best examples of agent creativity by
celebrating these ideas with a combination of cash-r prizes, popular rock
star-themed giveaways and inaugural celebrations and cruises."
