Default Cruise Lines Fight Agent Discounts

Cruise Lines Fight Agent Discounts
by Paul Motter

But the buyer will benefit with more clarity in cruise pricing


Some agents play fast and loose with cruise pricing policy

There is a little secret in cruise buying that doesn't get a lot of attention - but the cruise lines see it as a very serious problem. It is certain cruise agents exploiting any loophole possible to offer discounts to customers in order to sell more cruises. This practice is generally called "rebating."

All of the cruise lines attempted to enforce flat pricing policies years ago to end "rebating" once and for all - but some cruise agencies continued to find ways to rebate despite the cruise line policies and the protestations of their cruise agency colleagues.

I am the editor, but I also speculate, ask questions and play devil's advocate. I reserve the right to change my mind.
