Norwegian Cruise Line has announced that it will amend its base commission to 10% in the UK market effective from January 1, 2013.
The line says the move reinforces its commitment to the UK trade, through its Partners First philosophy, as it develops new ways to ensure fairness, greater price parity, less confusion for customers and an increase in the number of agents selling cruise. In addition, the company will reward agents with incremental earning opportunities through performance-based incentives.
For 2013, the company will continue to make major investments into joint marketing funds as a further commitment to the travel trade. To further reinforce its commitment to price parity in the market, the company will remove its 5% online discount on www.ncl.co.uk from January 1.
