Silversea selected Amadeus to provide automated booking capability for traditional and online travel agents in North America as well as the U.K.
The decision to expand Silversea's sales channels to the Amadeus global distribution system involved selecting an IT partner that could provide the cruise company with guaranteed system reliability, optimal merchandising opportunities and dynamic reservation capabilities. Amadeus offers distribution and reservations capabilities to 18 cruise lines in 80 markets around the world.
Amadeus Cruise Distribution Solutions includes Amadeus Cruise, the booking application available to travel agents via the Amadeus Selling Platform and as a stand-alone solution (regardless of whether or not agents use a global distribution system), and Amadeus Cruise API/Web Services for online travel resellers. Silversea will be distributed through both Amadeus Cruise for travel professionals and the Amadeus Cruise API/Web Services for online sales.
Silversea is also extending a special bonus commission offer through Oct. 12, 2011 for Amadeus Cruise users. North American travel agents who make new Silversea bookings via Amadeus Cruise can earn a US $100 per suite bonus commission. The offer is valid on new bookings made on Amadeus during the promotional period and on all suite categories, all departures and voyages.
