Celebrity Cruises on Friday launched the second phase of its Celebrity Special Agent program, aimed at improving travel agents' commissions by educating them further on the Celebrity product. The program features agent training on topics such as Celebrity's South America and Panama Canal cruises, while a course called "Groups 101" teaches agents how they can pad their bottom line by selling more groups.

Agents can also earn entries by making bookings on South America, Panama Canal or Caribbean itineraries up to August 31.
