Scenic to host 50 UK agents onboard Scenic Eclipse in June

Scenic Group hails success of group bookings

Scenic will invite 50 agents to board discovery yacht Scenic Eclipse during its upcoming UK & Ireland season

The line will welcome trade partners for ship tours and lunches in the Isle of Man, Dublin, Portrush and Aberdeen in June.

The scheme is part of Scenic & Emerald Cruises’ new director of sales, partnerships and strategic growth, Nick Hughes’ vision for more agents to experience the company’s river and ocean product.

Scenic Eclipse has to be personally experienced to appreciate just how ultra-luxury she is, which is why we are sending only personal invites to partners for the most sought-after invites in the sector,” he said.

“In addition to agent lunches and tours while Scenic Eclipse is in the UK, we are hosting three fam trips this year across Scenic and Emerald Cruises’ European river collection – more than ever before. We recognise that trade sales are a key strategic focus of the business, and agents are central to this.”

Scenic to continue trend of ‘strong bookings and increased brand awareness’

Hughes said the line is hoping to continue a recent trend of “strong bookings and increased brand awareness” which it reported in Q1 and Q2 off the back of Scenic Eclipse featuring in Cruising with Susan Calman on Channel 5.

During the visits, agents will also have the chance to see the onboard helicopters and new custom-built submersible.

The programme of ship visits will start in the Isle of Man on 6 June before the vessel moves to Dublin to host agents on 7 June. The third event will take place on 8 June in Portrush and the final visit will be hosted in Aberdeen on 14 June.
