Scenic has introduced Groups+, a new group booking program designed exclusively for travel advisors. The Groups+ Travel Advisor Program offers advisors a complimentary hosted suite on select 2024 Scenic Eclipse and Scenic Eclipse II sailings, allowing them to accompany their group as they explore the globe onboard the World’s First Discovery Yachts.
The Groups+ offer is available on a variety of sought-after itineraries including the new, "11-day Discover the Kimberly Coastline" itinerary on Scenic Eclipse II along Australia’s northwest coast. One of the most rugged and untouched wilderness regions in the world, the Kimberly Coast is home to towering baobab trees, thundering waterfalls and the world’s oldest living culture. The Groups+ offer is also available on several Arctic itineraries, including the "10-day Beyond the Arctic Circle" sailing from Tromso to Oslo paying call on the remote Svalbard Archipelago. For those looking to be some of the first passengers to visit the South Pacific onboard Scenic Eclipse II, Groups+ is also applicable on multiple itineraries in this magical region of the world including the "eight-day Lagoons, Reefs & Cultures of the Pacific" through Fiji and Tonga. The Groups+ offer is good on select group bookings made by August 31, 2023.
For travel advisors looking for even more incentive to book group sailings with Scenic as well as with Emerald Cruises, the "Epic Summer Group Savings" promotion offers generous savings on group bookings on river and ocean sailings across both brands.

Advisors will also receive a two percent bonus commission on new bookings that fall in this time frame. For all other river cruises, Scenic is offering $400 and Emerald Cruises is offering $250 per person savings.
