emerald waterways

Scenic & Emerald Waterways has launched a new online course, Agent Academy. The e-learning platform offers courses to help travel agents broaden their knowledge of Scenic Cruises & Tours, and Emerald Waterways Cruises.

Current modules include an introduction to Scenic & Emerald Waterways, as well as European river cruising with both brands. New courses will roll out every quarter in 2019. From Scenic Eclipse to escorted touring, Agent Academy is a one-stop shop for agents’ Scenic and Emerald Waterways learning journey, unlocking earning opportunities.

Joseph Grimley, director of UK trade sales, said: “We love working with agents, and are constantly striving to offer the very best support in promoting and booking with Scenic & Emerald Waterways. Agent Academy is our next step, providing an online training course which can be accessed 24/7 for travel agents who would like to learn more about our river cruises, ocean cruises and escorted tours. It provides rich content including many videos, which are themselves a fantastic selling tool for agents. I have to say I actually learned a great deal from completing the modules, and I’m sure agents will too.”

To celebrate the launch of Agent Academy, Scenic & Emerald Waterways is offering an incentive for travel agents – complete the four available modules by Monday March 4 2019 to be entered into a prize draw for a chance to win £500 of luxury gifts. These include Gucci trainers, Marks & Spencer vouchers, an Xbox ONE X, a Michael Kors watch and more.

Sign up to Agent Academy or visit the Scenic Agent Portal ( and the Emerald Waterways Agent Portal ( for more information.
