O F C'er
Commissions go up in increments based on total sales with that particular cruise line, so they can be anywhere from 10% to 15%.

This is why sometimes you may find agents 'pushing' one cruise line over another. If they only make 10% with one cruise line and 15% with another cruise line, it's obvious which one they will try to sell more.
