The luxurious Scenic Eclipse will be equipped with nine dining venues, suites with butler service and activities from kayaking to scuba diving to snowshoeing.
From the Med to the Americas, the Poles, Patagonia and all parts in-between, the world’s first discovery yacht will make a splash when Scenic Eclipse welcomes passengers in August, 2018.
Touted as six-star ultra-luxury, the 228-passenger mega-yacht is Scenic’s first ocean-going ship and has 114 suites, each with butler service, a private veranda and lounge area.
Nine dining venues range from casual to French fine dining and room service on Scenic Eclipse is all-inclusive — drinks are complimentary as is the in-suite mini-bar.
Public areas include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, plunge pools and the Spa Sanctuary.
There is a host of exciting itineraries for the mega-yacht, which is the perfect size for scenic cruising and can enter ports off limits to bigger ships.
All cruises have expert Discovery Leaders aboard and itineraries have all-inclusive shore excursions with more than a dash of adventure; excursions could be by Zodiac, kayak or e-bike or include snorkelling, scuba diving or snowshoeing.
There’s even a helicopter and a submarine.
Scenic Eclipse can cruise to Antarctica, South Georgia, the Falklands and, in the High Arctic, Svalbard, as well as the fjords of Norway and Chile and Iceland and Greenland.
In warmer climes, Scenic Eclipse will cruise the Dalmatian coast and through Caribbean waters visiting Cuba and South America, with passengers able to combine cruises with Scenic’s land tours.
