Scenic Eclipse gives you exclusive access to some of the world's most spectacular and least visited locations. From local tours to Zodiac, kayak, snorkeling, scuba diving, helicopter and submarine excursions, guests can enjoy exclusive access to locations larger ships can't reach. From Antarctica to the Caribbean, Greek Islands to the Norwegian Fjords, we’ll offer a range of helicopter and submarine excursions that will let you venture above, below and beyond anything you’ve ever imagined – enabling you to discover a whole new world.

We use a combination of Cruise Directors, local guides and our expert Discovery Team Leaders to ensure our guests’ needs are fully catered to. Not only can you expect to be taken to the must-see highlights, you’ll be treated to those little-known gems that no one else is aware of.

You're In Safe Hands

From the first ocean-going vessels thousands of years ago, the quest to design and build even better yachts that could withstand the elements has been ongoing. Scenic has taken all that experience and built the safest, most technologically advanced discovery yacht in the world. Featuring world-class internal safety features, the very best in dynamic positioning and a high polar rating, even the roughest of ocean stretches will have minimal impact on our guests.

Scenic Eclipse will have custom-built stabilisers that are 50% larger than other ships. Fitted with state-of-the-art fins that can adjust themselves to cope with even the biggest swells, Scenic Eclipse will remain steady, even at zero speeds. This innovation is especially important for our Polar cruises.

Along with an ice strengthened hull, we have two engine rooms in separate fire zones, two wheel houses and two galleys and refrigeration units. Guests’ safety and comfort remains our number one priority.

Scenic Eclipse will have an Ice Class 1A Super (Polar Class 6 in the new classification system)* polar rating, enabling navigation through Arctic and Antarctic waters in summer. Our cruises will be limited to 200 guests in these regions which gives us access to the broadest range of landing sites.

We’ve pushed the boundaries to discover even greater levels of comfort and safety for our guests, including state-of-the-art engineering and a stunning external design drawing inspiration from the sleek contours of a mega-yacht. Rather than a traditional anchor, which provides little stability, dynamic positioning utilises GPS to ensure accurate and secure mooring, no matter where in the world we are and is also a far more environmentally conscious way to control the ship. Our commitment to the environment continues with advanced water treatment systems and efficient low impact engines.
