I am working with a TA but she still has to go through the Princess agent and I have so far booked 5 cabins but have received nothing - I dont even know what amenity points are
When a TA books a group (either for someone who really has a group or just by having a number of cabins reserved to alot to passengers who do not know each other), Princess gives the TA "amenity points" to use to give the passengers some onboard "gifts".
Princess assigns each gift the number of amenity points to purchase. For example, (not a real one), giving a passenger a dinner at Sabatini's may cost more amenity points than giving a free photo from the ship's photgraphy department. It is up to the TA which "gifts" to get to use up the amenity points.
(If you are old enough to remember Green Stamps, it is about the same thing. You earned Green Stamps through purchases and could redeem them for various merchandise. The higher the value of the merchandise, the more Green Stamps were required.)
