NCL to pay commission on NCFs

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), says it will pay travel advisors commission on non-commissionable fares (NCFs).

NCL is the first major contemporary cruise line to compensate travel advisors on NCFs for reservations booked outside of the 120-day window.

‘Our Partners First philosophy remains top of mind, and our decision to pay commission on NCFs is further proof of our commitment to this community,’ says NCL president and CEO Harry Sommer.

This new development is designed to further help travel partners establish a stronger relationship with their clients and increase brand loyalty, resulting in repeat business and higher earning potential.

Damian Borg, director of sales, NCL AUNZ says travel advisors are skilled in speaking to the line’s itineraries, Free at Sea promotion and the 18-ship fleet and its onboard offerings.

‘They are providing immense value to the business. We see this and we wanted to reward our travel advisors like never before.’

The payment of NCFs will go into effect on 1 January 2023 for new reservations made 120 days prior to sailing for cruises departing 1 May 2023 and forward. To qualify for the NCF commission, travel advisors will need to submit a marketing plan to their NCL Sales Support Team by 31 December 2022.
