Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line recently welcomed more than 200 North America-based travel advisors aboard the Grand Classica for its “Seminar at Sea.” The two-day experience included presentations given by the cruise line’s leadership team, a series of networking opportunities and a private party at the all-inclusive Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach Resort on Grand Bahama Island.
Several leadership team members explained what is offered for those booking trips with Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, including a commission structure beginning at 15 percent, with no non-commissionable fares (NCFs). The line also gave a presentation on offerings such as the Cruise and Stay Program, which provides the option to extend getaways to the Bahamas with stays at one of four beach resorts, including Grand Lucayan Bahamas, Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach, Taino Bay and Pelican Bay Hotel. The Cruise and Stay Program allows travel advisors to combine a two-night cruise with one, two, three or four nights or more, at one of those. Both properties offer all-inclusive options.
Travel advisors who collaborate with Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line will soon be able to access a number of new programs and initiatives to facilitate the booking process and make it more profitable. Upcoming programs include:
- Travel Advisor Reference Guide
- Toll-free number with both English and Spanish-speaking agents available to assist with reservations
- New simplified pricing strategy
- Revamped website dedicated to travel advisors
- A continuing series of shipboard luncheons and seminars-at-sea
