We got advanced notice and opportunity to apply last week, but the announcement today was that on 9/11 they're opening up some free cruises for agents who are members of their special rewards and then on 9/12 for other agents. So, if we weren't among the first of the elite group to get one, then we'll have to apply again on 9/11. But it'll be interesting to see how many cruises they offer to agents, but it's clearly to encourage agents to try their product firsthand so they can become more familiar with it and perhaps sell more of them. We'll wait to see how all this works for them.
