American Queen Voyages announced a new pricing structure that covers port charges, taxes, services fees and onboard crew gratuities as part of the all-inclusive fares beginning 02JAN 2023.
Travel agents will also earn commission on previously non-commissionable fees (NCFs) as an opportunity to increase earnings.
“At American Queen Voyages, our ultimate goal is to deliver a cut-above experience for our guests before they even step foot aboard our vessels,” said Cindy D’Aoust, President of American Queen Voyages. “To do this, we are rolling out extra inclusions at one bundled price to create the overall best cost point and financial transparency for our highly-valued guests. After listening to feedback from our travel partners, we knew this new pricing structure was the best way to bundle port charges, taxes, service fees and gratuities into one advertised fare, while offering an increased commission opportunity to our valued cruise travel agents.”
New All-Inclusive Fares for Guests
The new all-inclusive fares are structured to offer bundling of incremental travel costs, and a full view of the total cruise package price without hidden fees. With nearly everything included in one bundled price, the only additional expenses for AQV guests, while on board, will be optional premium shore excursions, top-shelf alcoholic beverages, spa treatments, and boutique purchases.
New All-Inclusive Fares Enhanced for Travel Agents
American Queen Voyages created the bundled pricing structure after learning from travel partners that customers want a convenient all-in-one price package for their trip. As many of the fees now offered in bundled pricing often fall into the category of NCFs for travel agents, the revised fare structure will allow for enhanced commissions and earning potential.
