Scenic to host UK agents on luxury Red Sea sailing

Scenic has teamed up with Cruise Saudi, the Saudi Tourism Authority and SAUDIA Airlines, to offer UK agents the experience of luxury sailing in new cruise destination Saudi Arabia.

Twelve of Scenic's key trade partners will enjoy a five-day voyage aboard Scenic Eclipse in the Red Sea alongside global agents and media. 

Joseph Grimley, Scenic Group's UK director of trade sales, said: "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 destination of Saudi Arabia - one that is set to be the next luxury holiday hotspot.."

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 rewards.

Discovery yacht Scenic Eclipse offers space for 228 guests and an almost 1:1 guest-to-staff ratio with all-balcony suites.

The yacht features up to 10 dining options, including the newly refurbished Yacht Club with a deck, lounge and dining area.
