Both travel advisors and their clients can benefit from the new promotion currently being offered by PONANT on select sailings to Latin America in 2019 and 2020.
Choosing from over 30 cruises, travelers will find savings of up to 30 percent on fares depending on the dates, plus a $950 air credit ($1,900 per couple). Meanwhile, travel advisors booking these itineraries will receive an additional 5 percent commission. Savings apply to new bookings only and must be reserved with deposits paid by June 30, 2019.
In 2019 PONANT will have four ships exploring Latin American waters (Le Boreal, Le Soleal, L’Austral and the new Le Champlain), calling at ports such as Chichen Itza and the historic center of Campeche, both UNESCO World Heritage sites in Mexico. There is also “flightseeing” over the Blue Hole in Belize and a visit to Cortes in Honduras including the Mayan site of Copan and the Omoa Fortress. During a call at Santo Tomas De Castillas in Guatemala, guests can go to Tikal, yet another UNESCO location and one of the largest archaeological sites and urban centers of the pre-Columbian Mayan civilization.
Example voyages include the new 14-day Natural Wonders of Central America itinerary, which sails from Quetzal to Guayaquil on Le Soleal and crosses no fewer than six countries to visit nature parks and multiple islands, plus give travelers the opportunity to interact with the local people. The cruise sails Sept. 23- Oct. 6, 2019. Fares start at $6,150 pp and are available with a savings of up to 25 percent, plus the air credit and enhanced travel advisor commission.
