Mediterranean Cruises – The cradle of culture

A region that has had an epic influence throughout history is yours to discover.

From the romance of Venice, the bright beauty of Croatia and the exotic delights of Turkey through to the crystalline waters of the Greek Islands, the feistiness of Spain and the rare gems of Morocco; our Mediterranean cruises of discovery on Scenic Eclipse will introduce you to a whole new world.

Thanks to the unique design of our yacht, we’re able to dock in smaller ports, cruise right into the heart of towns and villages and offer you a host of shore excursions that are entirely original and unique to Scenic.

Visit untouched islands, dive beneath the waves in our submarine to seek out ancient relics and soar above mighty landscapes in our helicopter for an entirely different view of the Mediterranean.

Destinations & Experiences

Our Mediterranean cruises offer a range of handpicked shore excursions that will showcase the most fascinating, important and inspiring aspects of the Mediterranean region.

Every day you can choose something new. Our Scenic Enrich experiences are moments that will ignite your senses, create lasting memories and thrill your soul.

Our Journey Designers have gone to the Nth degree to ensure that each shore excursion offers something new and with a host of different activities from active to the more relaxed on offer you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Traverse the Corinth Canal, discover the 4th century masterpiece that is Diocletian’s Palace in Split, Croatia or walk the Roman streets and explore the millennia-old houses and temples perfectly preserved in the eerie ash of Pompeii.


This spectacular region will set your heart ablaze and the Mediterranean cruises activities on offer are truly astounding.

Choose from the glamour of Cannes in the French Riviera to spicy nights in Morrocco wandering the souks or the moving experience of observing ANZAC Day at Gallipoli.

Shore excursion - Santorini

Arrive in beautiful Santorini and take an e-bike to explore the town. A cascade of white and azure domes along the coastline, this little place will capture your heart from the moment you step foot onshore.

Explore the Minoan site of Akrotiri and the gorgeous traditional hilltop village of Oia.

Float along

While other guests wander around Santorini, you might choose to get out on the mighty Mediterranean in one of our kayaks or snorkel around the bay.

Perhaps a submarine journey to uncover the ocean’s many secrets or soaring over the island in our helicopter are activities you might enjoy. On Scenic Eclipse, it’s all possible.
