Travel Agent Appreciation

MSC Academy Surpasses 10,000 Graduates

Cruise Line Launches An Agent Giveaway

MSC Cruises USA – the North American arm of MSC Cruises – reports that MSC Academy, the cruise line’s education platform, has surpassed 10,000 graduates.

Hosted on the premier e-learning platform, Travel Agent University (TAU), the academy has been designed to help trade partners learn about MSC Cruises – and more importantly how to sell MSC to their clients. MSC Academy consists of multiple courses, quizzes and checkpoints detailing MSC Cruises’ history, fleet and onboard experiences, as well as providing continuous updates on the MSC Cruises product.

“We are so pleased that MSC Academy has been so successful in providing advisors not only a key tool for education on our brand, product and growth, but also an opportunity to learn how to effectively sell MSC Cruises to their clients,” said Ken Muskat, chief operating officer and executive vice-president, MSC Cruises USA. “As we continue rapid growth both globally and in North America, our partners have a unique opportunity to grow their business with us and increase their earning potential.”

To celebrate the significant milestone, MSC Cruises is rewarding graduating travel advisors, giving away five sailings on board the Nov. 21 three-night sailing of MSC Meraviglia, arriving to North America in October. The giveaway is eligible to all MSC Academy graduates in Canada and the US who completed the program from March 28, 2017 to May 31, 2019, meaning there is still time to qualify for the giveaway. Winners will be selected and announced on June 7 at

MSC Academy is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. To learn more about and enrol in MSC Academy, visit
