CCL Broadens Agent Fam Program

Carnival Cruise Lines is expanding its travel agent familiarization program this year, attempting to eclipse last year's record number of participants. The 2006 program drew 23,000 agents and Carnival is hoping to beef up that number by including a greater variety of ships and ports in 2007. The program includes inspections of public areas, staterooms and spa and children's facilities. Agents also tour cruise terminal facilities and, while in port, visit area hotels and attractions to gain a personal feel to report back to their clients. There is also an executive fam program, which includes a visit to Carnival's Miami headquarters for cruise sellers who want fortify their understanding of the Carnival product. Travel agents wanting to participate in the program should contact Carnival's business development services department at (800) 327-7276.
