Ultra-luxury Silversea Cruises is rolling out a special pair of rewards to express its appreciation for travel agents throughout the month of March.
The new incentives include a $250 Visa Gift Card available to agents on 69 voyages when booked before March 31, 2016. And the new Sell Three, Sail Free program enables agents to earn their own complimentary familiarization cruise when they book (during the same time period) three new suites on any 2016 voyage. Both benefits are available to travel agents based in the Americas.

"We're showing our deep appreciation for the loyalty and support of the travel agent community with an exceptional opportunity for our agent partners to boost their sales and receive generous personal rewards in the process -- over and above their commission," said Mark Conroy, Silversea's managing director for the Americas. "Agents can pamper themselves with purchases at favorite stores or restaurants when they earn a gift card, and enhance their product knowledge with a free Silversea cruise when they make qualifying bookings this month. It's our way of extending star treatment to deserving agents."
The new incentives come at a time when Silversea is also offering exceptional value to agents' clients with its Most Exclusive All-inclusive™packages available on featured Mediterranean, Asia, and Africa itineraries.
The packages include a two-night pre-cruise stay at a deluxe hotel with transfers between airport, hotel and the ship (or for Africa voyages, a three-night safari in Kenya or South Africa), and roundtrip international economy airfare from over 50 gateways in the U.S. and Canada. Moreover, all guests on the featured voyages will enjoy free Wi-Fi and a wide choice of free shore excursions, offered in every port of call.
For the Sell Three, Sail Free program, cruise deposits for new bookings must be received by March 31, 2016. Agents whose bookings qualify for the program must submit a redemption form and take their cruise prior to September 30, 2016.
