Want to cruise through France for free or set sail on a complimentary Caribbean cruise? These contests are prime opportunities for travel agents to win when booking their clients on cruises.

Uniworld Boutique River Cruises is taking travelers on two new itineraries in France, and you can win your own cruise in France by booking your clients.

When you book any of the 2014 river cruises from now through Oct. 31, you will be entered to win a grand prize 15-day cruise, A Portrait of Majestic France, from Paris to Bordeaux for you and a guest (air included). Bordeaux, France is one of Uniworld’s new destinations for 2014, and travelers can also experience the region on the new 8-day Bordeaux, Vineyards & Chateaux cruise, sailing roundtrip from Bordeaux.

Uniworld will also be launching the new super ship S.S. Catherine on the Rhone and Saone rivers in Burgundy and Provence, with an 8-day cruise from Avignon to Lyon.

To enter the contest, visit eb.uniworld.com/oohlala. For more on Uniworld, visit uniworld.com/agency.

Seabourn is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a sweepstakes for agents with $25,000 in prizes.

Agents who book deposited trips from now through Dec. 31 will be entered into the 3-month sweepstakes. Two people will win $1,000 gift cards each week, with 25 gift cards being given away in total, and a grand prize winner will be drawn in January 2014. The grand prize is a complimentary cruise for two with roundtrip business-class airfare.

For more information, call (800) 929-9595 or visit seabourn.com.

Another way agents can win a free cruise is with MSC Cruises’ 3-month Cruise A Day Give-Away.

Agents who book from now through the end of the year will be entered to win a 7-night Caribbean cruise in a balcony stateroom for two. One cruise will be given away each weekday on board the MSC Divina. To be entered, agents must book a new client booking with deposit that fits in with each weekly theme, MSC Divina (Caribbean) or MSC Splendida (Mediterranean).

Winners must take their cruise by Dec. 31, 2014. For more information, call (877) 665-4655 or visit msccruisesagent.com.
