Travel industry experts agree that ongoing training is the key to keeping knowledge and skills sharp, helping to denote professionalism and close sales. To that end, Royal Caribbean International is doing its part with the launch of an entirely new online travel agent training program.
Royal Caribbean University (RCU) is a comprehensive platform that offers a highly visual, interactive and mobile-friendly approach to online learning. Successful participants earn a "degree" in adventure and are eligible for an enhanced lineup of rewards from what company execs call "the world's most adventurous cruise line."
Highlights of the newly designed program include simplified navigation throughout, quick tips and highlights, continuous knowledge opportunities, bold imagery, and productive and useful communication methods. The curriculum is made up of three tracks -- the Campus Tour, Bachelor of Adventure and Master of Adventure -- where the micro-learning segments progressively take travel partners through every aspect of a signature Royal Caribbean vacation, including the soon-to-be 25-ship fleet, dining, accommodations, entertainment, accessible programming, and destinations.
After graduating the bachelor and master levels, agents can be eligible to receive a variety of rewards such as CLIA credits, a Passport to Savings booklet, onboard credit, complimentary VOOM WiFi, and opportunities to attend Seminars at Sea and even the Symphony of the Seas inaugural sailing in 2018.
