By Tom Stieghorst
Royal Loft Suite, Oasis of the SeasRoyal Caribbean International has set a $250 bonus commission on bookings of Crown Loft suites or higher accommodations on Oasis and Allure of the Seas cruises departing from June through August.

The additional commission is part of a travel agent appreciation event this week.

In addition, clients get a $1,000 onboard credit per stateroom with the booking, and third and fourth guests sail free.

Royal Caribbean executives plan to visit over 4,000 agents this week.

"Our Travel Agent Appreciation Week is part of our ongoing Loyal to You Always commitment to the travel agent community, and we are demonstrating our commitment in force,” said Vicki Freed, the cruise line’s senior vice president of sales and trade support.

Agents will earn an additional 2 percentage points in commission for all new bookings on any 2014 Caribbean or Bahamas sailings, and 1 point extra for all new bookings on any other 2014 sailing.

Also, agents will be eligible to win a cruise per year for five years, for booking five cruises that sail in the second half of 2014 and meet other criteria.
