Scenic Eclipse - a discovery yacht experience

Scenic Eclipse: A Discovery Yacht Experience for a Journey of a Lifetime

Scenic Eclipse is inspired by the sleek contours of a sailing yacht and custom-built with an unwavering commitment to safety and excellence. The World’s First Discovery Yacht, offers a handcrafted and truly all-inclusive luxury experience that was previously unimaginable, with a selection of 10 world class dining venues and thoughtful well-being facilities. 
A discovery voyage is a very personal experience, especially when you set out to explore some of the remotest and pristine regions of the world. The first sight of a towering glacier, a large colony of king penguins, a wide-eyed seal pup lazing on a floating ice, a pod of whales breaching against the midnight Arctic sun, are moments you will cherish for a lifetime. 

On a Scenic Eclipse voyage, we’ve implemented one of the highest space-to-guest ratios# in the industry, so that special moments can be as personal or as social as our guests would like, with no more than 200 guests during polar voyages and 228 guests on board in non-polar regions.

The world may have changed, however, Scenic’s commitment to the guests’ health, well-being, peace of mind and safety remains as consistent and strong as ever:
