Variety Cruises, which specializes in small cruise ships and luxury yachts in the Mediterranean and other areas, launched a travel agent rewards program in which agents earn sailings for their bookings.
Under the Variety Stars program, agents earn one or more star toward a complimentary trip on any Variety Cruises vessel for themselves and a companion for each cabin booked. Agents can also earn extra commissions on certain sailings.
For each six stars earned, travel agents receive a Variety Cruises trip. Port charges are additional.
Agents register by accessing the Travel Agent section of VarietyCruises.com. By registering, agent accounts are automatically credited with one star if they have never booked with Variety Cruises and two stars if they had done so in 2009 and 2010.
Once they log in, they have access to information, specials, their booking history and profile information.
