Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL) has pledged its commitment to the travel agent community worldwide by offering to pay advisors commission on non-commissionable fares (NCFs).

NCL said it 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,” said NCL president and CEO, Harry Sommer.

“We want our partners to thrive; we want to see their businesses grow all around the world,” Sommer added.

Damian Borg, director of sales, NCL AUNZ, said travel advisors provided “immense value” to NCL. “We see this value 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.
