Holland America Line Doubles Onboard Spending Credits for Guests who Book with a Future Cruise Consultant During a Cruise
Guests who make a new booking with a future cruise consultant while on board a Holland America Line ship will now earn double the onboard spending credit up to $400 per person. Travel professionals continue to earn full commission and receive full revenue credit for all bookings made during a cruise.
“New bookings made on our ships with a future cruise consultant are very important to Holland America Line and should be a goal for all our travel professionals,” said Eva Jenner, Holland America Line’s vice president of North America sales. “When a guest books on board it’s like an annuity for their travel professional.”
“A booking automatically applies to the travel professional of record,” Jenner added. “This cruise deposit also generates a booking confirmation notice to them so they are aware of the new booking even before the guests return home.”
Onboard spending credits also can be earned by purchasing a Future Cruise Deposit from the sales consultant during a cruise that allows guests to decide on an itinerary at a later date. However, Future Cruise Deposits are not eligible for the double spending credit. Travel professionals are also sent a Future Cruise Deposit (FCD) confirmation when a Future Cruise Deposit is purchased.
