Scenic’s highest-selling agents have been awarded at the cruise line’s prestigious ‘Night of Stars’.

Hosted at the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney at the weekend, the eighth annual awards event recognised Scenic Group’s top-performing Australia and New Zealand travel agencies.

Hosted by Stevie Jacobs, the gala event was attended by Scenic Group founder and chairman Glen Moroney, Getaway celebrities and over 260 VIP guests.

An ‘oceans’-themed evening saw a range of original entertainment, including choreographed dances designed to align with a sense of discovery, unique experiences, and luxury ocean travel.

During the ceremony, ten agents were awarded Diamond status for 2019, seven national honours were presented, along with awards for the top offices in each state for both the Scenic and Evergreen brands. The event was also used to unveil two massive announcements by the cruise company.
