Handcrafted by our experienced Journey Designers and Discovery Leaders, Scenic Eclipse’s extensive range of shore excursions are all-inclusive experiences that illustrate the extraordinary wonders every destination has to offer. Our Scenic Enrich experiences are exclusive and unique encounters that will be truly memorable.

With our Scenic Freechoice activities by Zodiac, kayak, snorkel, snow shoe or e-bike, led by your Discovery Team, you’ll have absolute freedom to choose your activities throughout your cruise.

All our guests are unique so we’ve divided our comprehensive program of all-inclusive shore excursions to suit all activity levels. From escorted kayak excursions to tours of cultural touchstones and everything in between, you get to choose the pace that suits you.

For those who love the get up and go, Scenic Freechoice excursions leave no stone unturned. Designed to let guests explore the highlights and hidden gems other cruise lines simply can’t reach, hit the waters in one of our on board Zodiacs and explore Milos’ magnificent volcanic rock formations as part of our Mediterranean Treasures itinerary.

With our Antarctica, South Georgia & Falkland Islands cruise, channel your inner explorer and plunge beneath the waves with an unbelievable submarine tour* that provides a truly awe-inspiring spectacle. For something a little more active, compete in the ‘Scenic Olympic Games’ at the site of the 1896 Athens Olympics during your own Mediterranean Discovery through the unparalleled beauty of Greece, Dubrovnik, Italy and Venice.

On our Great Civilisations Mediterranean Discovery cruise, take a guided tour of Sorrento, the site of Piazza Tasso, Sorrento Cathedral, and the Amalfi Coast, that culminates with views of Mount Vesuvius, still the only volcano in mainland Europe to have erupted in the last 100 years.
