Scenic is to host 12 UK travel agents on board its discovery yacht Scenic Eclipse during a global fam trip sailing in Saudi Arabia later this week.
The five-day Red Sea Voyage is taking place in partnership with Cruise Saudi, the Saudi Tourism Authority and SAUDIA Airlines.
Joining the “luxury bucket-list sailing” will be global travel agents, key trade partners and media, including Cruise Adviser.
Joseph Grimley, Scenic Group’s UK director of trade sales, said: “We all know how hard agents have worked over the last 18 months and how challenging it has been for them. This luxury bucket-list sailing not only provides our agents with an unforgettable experience but also allows them to truly understand the ultra-luxury cruising experience that Scenic Eclipse offers. All while showcasing the incredible destination of Saudi Arabia – one that is set to be the next luxury holiday hotspot. We’re so excited to be able to welcome our agent partners on board this week to allow them to enjoy the complete Scenic Eclipse experience.”
Scenic Eclipse has been sailing chartered itineraries in Saudi waters since July 17, 2021, with its scheduled Antarctica season set to return from January 7, 2022.
Scenic has recently relaunched its River Rewards & More travel agent incentive programme, where agents are rewarded with 200 points for every new booking on board Scenic Eclipse. Agents can collect as many points as possible, and at the end of each period, redeem them against a collection of luxury rewards, including vouchers, lifestyle goods, electronics and more.
Scenic Eclipse has two helicopters onboard and its own submarine, Scenic Neptune. The 228-guest vessel has all-balcony suites and an almost 1:1 guest-to-staff ratio. All guests can enjoy the services of a personal butler.
The yacht has 10 dining options, including the newly refurbished Yacht Club with a deck, lounge and dining area, as well as new cabanas on the top deck which have privacy curtains.
