A new expedition cruise line launching this November intends to sell through travel agents and pay commission, a company representative tells Travel Agent.

Offshore Outpost Expeditions (OOE), which is being billed as a “new type of expedition cruise,” is offering travel agents 10 percent commission, plus an inaugural season bonus commission of $500 per booking for up to four guests, and $1,000 per booking for five guests or more.

On November 6, OOE’s Pacific Provider will sail from San Diego to San Jose del Cabo, where it will embark on its inaugural cruise starting November 26. The itinerary will travel Mexico’s Sea of Cortez, aiming to offer guests a personalized, flexible travel experience.

For the 2017 – 2018 cruise season, the 160-foot Pacific Provider will sail expeditions in the Sea of Cortez, as well as a second destination to be announced later this year. The ship’s small size and maneuverability will allow it to visit areas not accessible by larger cruise ships, OOE said. Onboard, guests will be able to enjoy spacious cabins, dining areas and lounges, four tenders and an expansive deck space for viewing, dining and lounging. With a maximum capacity of 12 guests per cruise, travelers can also expect a guest to crew ratio of 2:1.

OOE is owned by Offshore Outpost, LLC, which is headquartered in Dallas,Texas.
