To celebrate the launch of a new partnership between MSC Cruises and the Sabre Travel Network®, MSC Cruises is offering agents a special incentive.

Agents who book MSC Cruises through Sabre Cruises® from Aug. 7-Nov. 5, 2008 will receive a bonus one percent commission on all cruises purchased.

“We are excited to be able to present this offer to agents across the U.S. and Canada. More than 50,000 agents already utilize the Sabre booking tool,” says Richard E. Sasso, president and CEO of MSC Cruises (USA).

Any travel professional, regardless of GDS affiliation, can access Sabre Cruises through the Sabre online leisure portal, Sabre-affiliated agents can access Sabre Cruises through MySabre.

The Sabre tool is the first GDS that features ‘per person pricing’ as opposed to ‘per cabin pricing.’

“This partnership is another way for MSC Cruises to re-affirm its commitment to helping the members of the travel agent community thrive,” Sasso adds.
