Boston, July 2018 – Travel agents sell trips by establishing good relationships with their clients and having a solid understanding of the travel product they are promoting. Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours believes that one of the best ways for agents to understand their fully-inclusive luxury travel products is to experience them for themselves. This firsthand knowledge can help elevate a travel agent’s sales pitch to a client from just describing the product to passionately promoting it. So Scenic is opening that ‘experience door’ by offering a free eight-day 2018 luxury Europe cruise for two to any travel agent who makes three 2018 Europe river cruise bookings between July 1 and August 31, 2017. The offer is restricted to one cruise per agent and is not applicable to group bookings. After making the three bookings, agents need to email the booking numbers, complete agent details and three preferred 2018 travel dates to [email protected] by September 5th. Additional details are available at www.scenicusa.com/agent-incentives.
Scenic also offers a Scenic Specialist Course to augment the firsthand education of the travel agent. The Company’s insight into how best to sell travel draws upon a 30-year history of providing award-winning land tours and truly all-inclusive, five-star river cruises. And because Scenic is one of the only cruise lines to offer truly all-inclusive fares, agents receive commissions on all services except hair salon services, massage treatments and port fees. Even gratuities, alcohol and shore excursions are included in the commissionable fare.
The 5-star Scenic Space Ships offer all-inclusive luxury experiences – from private butler service and unlimited complimentary beverages and spirits including mini-bar re-stocked daily, to full-size private balcony staterooms – all making use of Scenic’s unique Sun Lounge technology – where the walkout open-air balcony can convert to an all-weather lounge with a push of a button, expanding the living area of the stateroom. Plus, there is a vitality pool on the Sun Deck (on several Space Ships), a guest lift between decks, wellness area and fitness center. On board cuisine offers multiple dining options, including the French tradition of dégustation at Table La Rive, fine dining at Portobellos and the more casual fare at the River Cafe. As with all Scenic river cruises, guests will never have to reach for the wallet or purse as everything (except a haircut or massage) is included: tips and gratuities, expert local guides, all Scenic Freechoice activities that allow for a more personalized vacation, plus Scenic Enrich events which are exclusive to Scenic and its guests.
Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours has grown over its 30-year history to include award-winning, all-inclusive escorted tours that take participants to many of the world’s most fascinating destinations; two award-winning river cruise lines – Scenic and Emerald Waterways; and, in 2018, the world’s first Discovery Yacht – Scenic Eclipse. Emerald Waterways’ seven Star Ships offer deluxe cruises in Europe, and the Mekong, while Scenic’s 15 Space Ships offer truly all-inclusive, five-star river cruises in the same destinations as well as the Irrawaddy River in Myanmar.
