Scenic launches 2026 cruises with training and agent incentive

Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours plans agent dinners and a webinar to promote the launch of its Worldwide Discoveries Collection, which offers cruises from October 2025 to March 2027.

The two Discovery Yachts – Scenic Eclipse and Scenic Eclipse II – are offering more than 163 itineraries, visiting 278 ports in 50 countries.

Highlights include voyages to witness the solar eclipse in Greenland and Iceland; Christmas in Antarctica; a dedicated itinerary to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the US departing from New York in 2026; a Monaco Grand Prix sailing along the French and Italian Rivieras; and wellness-focused sailings to Panama.

To celebrate the launch of the collection and Scenic Eclipse’s fifth birthday, Scenic’s regional sales managers will host agent dinners at luxury venues in Scotland, the northwest, the Midlands and London during the week of September 9.

Places will be randomly allocated to 10 agents who make a booking on the new season – or who go above and beyond to promote it.

Wendi Hardy, national key account manager for Scenic UK, will host a webinar on June 26 to offer agents selling tips and key information on the new cruise calendar.

Claudius Docekal, Scenic Group’s ocean deployment vice-president, said: “As the only polar-class Discovery Yachts with two helicopters and an electric submersible, we have expanded our sailings in Antarctica, for example, as our guests love being able to explore this stunning part of the world from every vantage point.

“For those looking to immerse themselves in history rather than wilderness, Scenic Eclipse will sail the Americas in 2026 marking the country’s 250th anniversary of independence, and one of her voyages, originating from New York City, will visit sites from the nation’s founding in the north to the battlefields of the Civil War in the south in an amazing and one-of-a-kind voyage.”
