Summer is here and so is our new Partner of the Month. This June, Carnival Cruise Lines (CCL) is Travel Planner’s International’s (TPI) Partner of the Month. Throughout the month, we’ll expose CCL to our 4,000+ agents in our “surround-sound” approach – featured on our agent-only portal, email signatures, and a private Facebook Live broadcasted to over 1,850 agents, among other avenues.
We’re obsessed with our Rockstar travel agents. We know they’re more than just independent contractors, they’re small business owners running a travel agency! Our Partner of the Month should have the same attitude. This made picking CCL a no-brainer.
“[TPI agents] are a really great group of people who share the same enthusiasm and drive for building their travel business,” said Kirsten Sanchez, Business Development Director, Carnival Cruise Line. She adds, “I have never met a group of individuals with such passion for what they do. Carnival would not be the cruise line that we are without travel agents like TPI agents.”
Sanchez is just as enthusiastic about being a resource to our TPI agents. In April, she hosted our Vacation Nights, a talk-show style presentation where agents and their clients can join in-house or tune in via Livestream.com. She’s also interacted with our agents on our hosted Facebook Lives, at ship inspections, and other TPI events.
“At Carnival, we continue to be dedicated to your success and we hope to be your partner in Fun for many years to come,” said Sanchez.
Being a resource and dedicated to the agent’s success is exactly why our agents keeping booking with CCL. Simply ask Adrian Teixeira, owner of NexCruise and TPI Agent.
“Having worked directly with Carnival when I first started in this industry has given me a great advantage,” Teixeira said. “And it was one of the best experiences I had.”
