Carnival Cruise Line has kicked off a travel agent trivia contest on its trade-dedicated Facebook page to commemorate the company’s 45th anniversary. The line’s first ship, the TSS Mardi Gras, departed on its inaugural cruise from Miami on March 11, 1972, marking the line’s official anniversary. The contest runs through March 10.
The “Carnival 45th Anniversary Trivia” game includes one trivia question related to the company’s history each day for the five-day game period. The first nine agents to answer the daily question correctly will each win a $100 Visa gift card. During the game period, a total of 45 agents will be awarded a combined $4,500 in gift card winnings.
“The cruise industry was built by our travel agent partners, who took a leap of faith with our fledgling industry in the 1970s,” said Carnival’s Vice President of Sales & Trade Marketing Adolfo Perez. “During these 45 years, agents have helped tens of millions of Carnival guests realize our founder Ted Arison’s vision that everyone deserves a great cruise vacation at a fantastic value. This contest is one more way of thanking agents for their tremendous support through the years.”’
The $100 Visa gift card will be awarded to the first nine agents that respond correctly to the daily trivia question. Additionally, if travel agents have “throwback” pictures of Carnival ships or Carnival cruises they have taken over the years, Carnival is inviting agents to post them on the Facebook page.
