After years of careful planning and preparation, Scenic Eclipse, the World’s First Discovery Yacht, is just over a year from launch — heralding a new horizon in the world of ultra-luxury ocean travel.
Scenic Eclipse is unlike any other ocean-going cruise ship. Its purpose is to take passengers beyond the expected, introducing lands, moments and experiences which few others have been lucky enough to witness. The ship marries boundless adventure with the ultimate in luxury, so you can travel this wonderful world in the utmost comfort, style and elegance — eagerly awaiting that which lies beyond the horizon.
Earlier this year, Scenic Eclipse’s construction began at the Uljanik Shipyard JSC in Croatia, with the prestigious keel laying ceremony taking place in April. The ship is set to launch in August 2018 with a season of extraordinary itineraries, which see it travelling the length of the globe — from Antarctica and the Arctic, to the British Isles, Iceland and the Mediterranean.
With the launch of Scenic Eclipse barely more than a year away, we’ve released three brochures showcasing the ship’s full 6-star experience, including an in-depth look at its pioneering features, and the complete collection of upcoming ocean cruise itineraries. The brochures include Scenic Eclipse, Scenic Discovery Voyages: Europe & The Americas, and Scenic Polar Adventures: Arctic and Antarctica — you can access all three here.
If you’re interested in being one of the first passengers to step on board this magnificent ocean liner during its inaugural cruise season, you can find out more about Scenic Eclipse and its unforgettable itineraries below.
Luxury Fit for Royalty
Scenic Eclipse takes ocean cruising to a whole new level, marrying luxury, adventure and safety to create the World’s First Discovery Yacht. Our 6-star ultra-luxury mega yacht carries just 228 guests, for an unrivalled sense of intimacy and incomparable levels of service. The slender and elegant proportions of the ship mean you’ll dock in exceptional destinations and smaller ports where other ships simply cannot go, immersing you in regional cultures and unlocking rare and wonderful experiences.
We’ve worked hard to ensure that Scenic Eclipse sets a new benchmark in the standard of its ocean-cruising suites. Every one of the 114 beautifully designed all-verandah suites offer levels of comfort and luxury akin to the world’s finest hotels. The suites range in size from the generous 32m2 Verandah Suites to the 247m2 two-bedroom Penthouse Suite — all offering spacious accommodation as you negotiate lands of beauty and splendour.
Fine Dining and On Board Activities
Scenic Eclipse boasts a wealth of elegant public areas, each complemented by the ship’s near 1:1 guest-to-crew ratio. Nine dining venues are available, from the French fine dining Lumière to the laidback atmosphere of the Azure Bar & Café. Guests can expect the finest fare from every menu on board, including regional specialities hand-selected by local suppliers. There’s also a roster of premium branded beverages, which are yours to cherry pick as part of our generous all-inclusive offering.
Other on board amenities to enjoy include a 550m2 spa, state-of-the-art theatre and several bar and lounge areas — so you can rest, relax and look forward to every step of the journey.
