Scenic Eclipse, the World’s First Discovery Yacht, has been years in the planning. The launch heralds a new direction for the award-winning luxury travel operator. Three brochures – Scenic Eclipse, Scenic Discovery Voyages: Europe & The Americas, and Scenic Polar Voyages – Arctic and Antarctica – have just landed.
Sail the seas in luxury fit for royalty
The 6-star ultra-luxury mega yacht for only 228 guests – 200 in the Arctic and Antarctica –launches in the Mediterranean on 31 August 2018. Scenic Eclipse takes ocean cruising to a whole new level – marrying luxury, discovery and safety, and giving guests the opportunity to explore above and beyond what was previously imaginable. Scenic Eclipse’s intimate size means you’ll dock in unique locations and smaller ports that larger ships simply cannot reach.
Sleep in the most luxurious suites
Scenic sets the benchmark for the standard of ocean-cruising suites. Every one of the 114 spacious and beautifully designed suites features a private verandah and lounge area. Akin to the finest hotels in the world, ranging in size from the generous 32 square metre Verandah Suites to the 247 square metre two-bedroom Penthouse Suite, a Scenic Eclipse suite is one of the greatest luxuries you’ll have.
Fine dining and drinks for every tastebud
Nine dining venues are available, from the laid-back Azure Bar & Café to Lumière French fine dining, plus 24-hour in-suite dining. Menus feature the finest fare, including regional specialities sourced from local suppliers. Not to mention unlimited complimentary beverages, including an in-suite minibar.
All-inclusive, opulent extras
