Custom-designed with a wealth of world-class features for unrivalled exploration, we welcome Scenic Eclipse II, which will enhance the fleet adding a ship of unrivalled innovation in 2023. With two Discovery Yachts, we will take you immerse you on ultra-luxury journeys around the world. 
In 2019, Scenic Group made history by  creating The World’s First Discovery Yacht, with Scenic Eclipse setting the benchmark in 6-star ultra-luxury, innovative design and state-of-the-art technology. Nearly three years on, Scenic Eclipse remains the benchmark and jewel in the crown of global luxury cruising. 
 
With the elegant lines of a sailing yacht and the technological prowess of an expedition ship, Scenic Eclipse is truly unique. A Discovery Yacht capable of cruising into polar regions with ease, allowing guests to soar above on one of two on board helicopters^ or explore below on our custom-built submarine^. 
 
In 2023, we will once again make history, welcoming Scenic Eclipse II to our fleet and take guests to more than 357 extraordinary ports in 54 remarkable countries, spanning over seven continents. This is the future of world-wide discovery yacht cruising.

United by Innovative Design & Technology 

At the core of Scenic Eclipse is the seamless combination of 6-star ultra-luxury, with the world-class technological advancements that are required for unrivalled exploration. A Polar Class 6 rating, a strengthened hull and customised stabilisers, ensure your voyage through even the roughest of seas is calm and comfortable. With the activation of our GPS Dynamic Positioning, Scenic Eclipse is anchored without having to ever drop an anchor. It allows us to venture into the most ecologically sensitive areas of the world and leave as small a footprint as possible.  

When we reach these extraordinary regions, your experience is fully immersive. You can soar above, below and beyond the horizon on board one of two Airbus H130-T2 helicopters^ and our custom-built submarine, Scenic Neptune^, found on both Discovery Yachts. At the Scenic Eclipse Marina deck, enjoy Zodiacs, kayaks, stand-up paddleboard experiences. On our cruise voyages in the warmer waters of the Mediterranean, Caribbean and Australia, venture out by Tiwal sail boats or by Scenic e-bike to explore at your own pace.  

Scenic Eclipse II has been designed and built using the latest innovation and we are delighted to announce the introduction of Scenic Neptune II^, the second custom-built next generation submarine of our fleet. Seating up to 8 guests your pilot will take you to a magical underwater world diving down to 200 metres. In the warm waters of Indonesia, marvel as brightly coloured tropical fish swim past. In Antarctica, this unlocks a world that you will remember for a lifetime. 

Discovery Meets 6-Star Ultra-Luxury

The Scenic difference is that you, our guests, are at the heart of everything we do. Our world-class staff ensure every detail is taken care of to the nth degree. There's your personal butler guiding you through the pillow menu in your luxuriously appointed suite to ensure you’ll experience a fully restorative sleep. 

The Discovery Team will host in-depth learning sessions if you are interested in the migratory path of Artic Terns, in the state-of-the-art theatre. They will then take you out on a Zodiac to marvel at this species in their natural habitat.  If you have a special occasion or a milestone day, celebrating a birthday or anniversary, then Scenic Eclipse Corporate Executive Chef Tom Götter can create an exquisite dessert that evening exclusively for you. With Scenic, every moment of your journey delivers beyond expectation.  


Extraordinary Experiences Creating Lifelong Memories  

On board every Scenic Eclipse voyage is a dedicated Discovery Team, with up to 21 experts from within their field. Led by modern-day explorer, Jason Flesher, his team ranges from historians to  glaciologist and naturalist, hailing from every corner of the world. They share their own personal insights, revealing enthralling details and fascinating facts that take your journey to a whole new level.  

The team compliment an abundance of fully-immersive experiences, depending on your voyage type you can choose from Scenic Discovery, Enrich and Freechoice experience, and then pursue these on shore activities at your preferred pace. Perhaps today is the day you take a guided hike through the stunning bushland that surrounds Whitehaven Beach on Australia’s east coast. A lesson in history at a former Viking site in Scotland or kayaking alongside Adelie penguins in Antarctica. Or maybe today is all about indulgence at Senses Spa, before taking a yoga class at the tranquil on board studio. With Scenic, it’s more than personalised travel, it’s appreciating that each guest is truly unique.
