The agent and advisor focused lessons can be accessed online at no cost and provide the skill necessary to achieve sales goals. The Seabourn Academy is comprised of six courses divided into multiple lessons that cover every angle of selling ultra-luxury travel.

Each module features learning objectives, quizzes and a final exam, and the course offers agents and advisors a wealth of detail on Seabourn’s expanded fleet, which now counts five ultra-luxury vessels and two on the horizon.

The courses include:

—101: Mastering the Art of Selling Luxury Travel – Providing insights into the vocabulary of ultra-luxury, as well as differences, expectations, truths, and myths.

—102: The Elements of Ultra-Luxury – An overview of the physical and intangible features of ultra-luxury travel and their benefits to affluent travelers.

—105: Locating, Attracting and Serving Luxury Travelers – Covering branding, the habits of affluent travelers, and successful marketing strategy and tactics.

—106: Making the Sale & Seabourn Sales Support – The art of making recommendations, handling objections, and closing a sale, as well as resources available to travel advisors.
