Carnival to launch app for members of rewards club


Harry Kemble harry.kemble@travelweekly.co.uk


Carnival Cruise Line has developed a smartphone app for its rewards club to communicate with registered agents during out-of-work hours.


Agents can access their Loyalty


Rocks Club account on the move to claim bookings, view accrued points, complete online training, learn about incentives and give feedback. Carnival has about 4,800


registered agents for the loyalty club and hopes to surpass 10,000 by the end of 2018, across the mobile and desktop platforms. The first 230 agents to download the app, which will be available on Apple and Android devices from the end of the month, will win prizes ranging from £5 to £1,000 in cash, or a cruise. Points earned on the desktop version of the Loyalty Rocks Club

LOYALTY ROCKS CLUB: App will be available from the end of this month


are carried over if the agent also downloads the mobile version. Iain Baillie, vice-president of


international sales, said: “We have been running the Loyalty Rocks Club for just over a year but what agents have said is that it would be great if you can access this app out of work hours. “Developing the app has been a considerable investment but we think it is the future of rewards clubs and the right thing to do.” He said the Loyalty Rocks Club app “mirrored” the


desktop version bar the “push” notifications that allows Carnival to notify agents round the clock. A chatroom is being developing


for the desktop version. Baillie added: “We envisage people will be using both versions. “Agents can communicate with each other in the chatroom and share their Carnival Cruise Line experiences and tips to increase their bookings. “We want them to use this as a


knowledge centre.” carnival.com


Seven new small-group tours include the 19-day


Ancient China and the Palace of the Gods (from £3,999) and eight-day Oman in the Land of Sinbad (£1,499). For 2019, there will be more departures for solo


travellers to destinations such as China, Sri Lanka, Morocco and Vietnam. Deposits for bookings this month have been


reduced to £40. In January and February, Titan is offering a £10


lifestyle voucher to agents who make a booking and email agentincentives@titantravel.co.uk within seven


days. Agents will also be entered into a daily prize draw. titantravel.co.uk
