UK agents will experience the benchmark in ultra-luxury cruising on board Scenic’s discovery yacht Scenic Eclipse during a fam trip sailing in Saudi Arabia later this week.
In partnership with Cruise Saudi, the Saudi Tourism Authority and SAUDIA Airlines, 12 of Scenic’s key trade partners will embark on an unforgettable five-day voyage in the Red Sea alongside a number of global agents and media.
Joseph Grimley, Scenic Group’s UK director of trade sales, said of the trip: “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 17 July 2021, with its scheduled Antarctica season set to return from 7 January 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.
Ultra-luxury discovery yacht, Scenic Eclipse, offers unrivalled exploration of the destinations it visits – thanks to its fleet of discovery vehicles including two on board helicopters and its very own submarine, Scenic Neptune. With space for just 228 guests and an almost 1:1 guest-to-staff ratio, the on board experience provides a truly luxury experience – with all-balcony suites and guests benefiting from the service of a personal on board butler. The yacht features up to 10 dining options, including the newly refurbished Yacht Club with a deck, lounge and dining area, as well as new cabanas on Deck 10 (the yacht’s top deck) that come complete with comfortable lounges and privacy curtains.
