Scenic Eclipse celebrates its first anniversary

The World’s First Discovery Yacht™

The first year of setting the new benchmark in ultra-luxury cruising

On 15 August 2020 Scenic Eclipse marks the first anniversary of its maiden voyage which departed from Reykjavik, Iceland. The past year has been one of extraordinary milestones, setting the new benchmark in ultra-luxury cruising. Scenic Eclipse has explored the world from pole to pole with our valued guests discovering extraordinary pristine landscapes and having unforgettable experiences.

Scenic Eclipse was christened in New York by godmother, Dame Helen Mirren in September 2019. The exceptional Discovery Team then took guests on exquisite handcrafted voyages through the bustling cosmopolitan cities and charming townships of North America, the ancient wonders of South America, and finally to the pristine wilderness of Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands. 

On this special occasion, we hope you enjoy this montage of memories we’ve created to share some of the many extraordinary moments, from Scenic Eclipse’s first year of cruising this beautiful planet.
