American Safari Cruises (ASC) has just bumped up commissions for travel agents. Agents can now earn up to 20 percent commission and get a $250 per person travel credit for their clients when they book a Hawaii luxury yacht cruise on American Safari Cruises' new seven-night inter-island sailings between the Big Island and Maui, debuting December 19.
The inaugural season incentives are available on 12 specific departures, and the deadline for the travel credit is October 31. Preferred partners will receive the maximum 20 percent. Agents who are members of ASC's Yachtalist program, or become a yacht specialist in upcoming webinars, will receive 17 percent commission. All other agents will receive 15 percent. Yachtalist webinar schedules are announced by e-mail invitation as well as posted on www.amsafari.com under Travel Agent.
The newly renovated 145-foot, 36-guest yacht Safari Explorer has a spa environment with a licensed masseuse for complimentary massages, yoga classes, a dedicated fitness area, on-deck hot tub and sauna. New design features include two large suites with Jacuzzi tubs and balconies, some triple accommodations and all outside or above-deck staterooms. A helicopter flight over Volcanoes National Park is included. The guest-to-crew ratio is 2 to 1. Prices begin at $3,995 per person double occupancy.
