Introducing Scenic Eclipse: the World’s First Discovery Yacht and a new benchmark in ultra-luxury expedition cruising. Surround yourself in elegance and explore horizons beyond your wildest imagination as luxury and discovery combine on board Scenic Eclipse. Encounter unforgettable sights, sounds, cultures and experiences in destinations ranging from the icy Arctic and the sun-kissed Mediterranean and the Americas.

A voyage aboard Scenic Eclipse is truly all-inclusive, with world-class facilities, multiple fine dining options and incredible shore excursions aboard kayaks, submarines and helicopters included in the price of your voyage… and that is just the start of the innovation on display.

Scenic Eclipse

Scenic Eclipse comes with a unique design concept that incorporates the personalised luxury and attention to detail of a yacht with the stunning facilities and impressive blend of indoor and outdoor spaces found on a regular cruise ship. With a chic design employing soft, sweeping edges and rich wood coupled with every amenity you could possibly wish for, Scenic Eclipse has been designed with guests in mind. Intimate and luxurious, the World’s First Discovery Yacht is built to dock in isolated ports that larger ships can’t reach, including the white expanse of the Arctic. Scenic Eclipse comes with the highest Polar Class rating (Polar Class 6), ensuring safe navigation in polar waters and allowing the ship to reach even more remote ports.

The unique design of Scenic Eclipse allows you to venture into extraordinary landscapes and experience life-changing moments as you travel in all-inclusive luxury on board the World’s First Discovery Yacht. You could traverse the coast of the Americas, from frozen Alaskan vistas to the forests and ancient ruins of Central America and the swaying palms of the Caribbean. Discover the dramatic landscapes and abundant wildlife of Antarctica and sail along timeless trade routes in the Mediterranean and Europe, discovering the wonders of Spain, Portugal, France and Scotland. Or perhaps cruise the coastlines of remote Arctic islands, the majestic fjords of Norway and the Svalbard archipelago, or the glaciers of Greenland and Iceland.

Scenic has a number of incredible all-inclusive excursion programmes that ensure guests get closer to the destination they are visiting than ever before. Scenic Freechoice gives guests the flexibility to pick the shore excursions that best suit their interests and pace. Scenic Enrich experiences take guests behind the scenes for private access and special moments inaccessible to most travellers, with specialist guides from the Discovery Team sharing their knowledge along the way. Taking guests beyond simple exploration, Scenic Discovery excursions include the use of a fleet of Zodiacs, kayaks and e-bikes, as well as snorkelling equipment and snow shoes. For a supplement, Scenic Eclipse comes ready with a helicopter, giving you the chance to soar above majestic fjords, glaciers and mountains, as well as a six-person submarine that allows you to explore below the surface of the ocean on an unforgettable excursion.
