Get ready because Carnival Cruise Line is ready to make you some good money this Wave season with the return of the popular Amp Up Commission Challenge. Through the program, you can now qualify to increase your commissions up to 15 percent based on bookings made now through March 21, 2023.

“This is our first true Wave season in several years, and we know how important this time is for our travel advisors, so we’re excited to once again have this incentive program kick off just in time for Wave and to offer the opportunity for travel advisors to grow their business and their commissions,” said Adolfo Perez, senior vice president of global sales and trade marketing for Carnival Cruise Line, in a press statement. “When we previously offered the Amp Up program from 2017 to 2019, it was very well-received by the travel advisor community, so we know this will be a great boost for them as they head into the New Year.”

Note: Don’t forget Carnival Cruise Line announced Emeril Lagasse’s Emeril’s Bistro will be expanded fleetwide. Currently, the eatery is on Mardi Gras, Celebration and Jubilee (arriving in Galveston, Texas, in December 2023.)

How to Participate in this Carnival Cruise Line Program

First of all, you must register on during the opt-in period that runs through Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2023. It’s open to agencies in the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada that currently qualify for 10 to 14 percent commissions and only counts on new bookings that have deposits in full or are paid in full between Jan. 1 and March 31. The agencies participating will need to make between 20 to 125 bookings during the booking period so they can qualify for the higher commission levels between 11 and 15 percent. This commission will be applied to bookings made from April 1 through Dec. 31, 2023.
