August 2019: The Maiden Voyage

Scenic Eclipse cruised to Iceland, ready to welcome guests for the maiden voyage, from the world’s northernmost capital Reykjavik to Quebec, Canada.  

September 2019: The Christening Ceremony

After making its way down to the beautifully diverse coastlines of Canada and the USA – via such charming townships as Lunenburg and Martha’s Vineyard – Scenic Eclipse arrived in New York City. During a ceremony broadcast live to several countries, the ship was christened by Godmother - Dame Helen Mirren on 10 September 2019, as part of a special ceremony in Manhattan, with Scenic Group Chairman and founder Glen Moroney, Karen Moroney, VIP, guests and media.

Making the most of the Discovery Yacht’s sleek design, Scenic Eclipse traversed the iconic Panama Canal, crossing from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean in ultra-luxury. From here, Scenic Eclipse headed south towards the majestic Chilean fjords. Once again, the unique design and world-class features of the Discovery Yacht enabled her to explore the narrow channels of the fjords, before reaching Cape Horn, the final destination before Antarctica.

November 2019 - March 2020

The World’s First Discovery Yacht travelled to Antarctica for its inaugural season in The Great White Continent. As the first Polar Class 6 vessel, Scenic Eclipse’s state-of-the-art technology, safety and wealth of discovery vehicles allowed guests to experience this magnificent region like never before.  

Spotting Emperor Penguins early in the season, taking guests on sea-ice walks, diving deeper into Antarctic waters than anyone else in Scenic Neptune, and being the first of the season to view the world’s largest iceberg, A-68, Scenic Eclipse’s first year has been about setting new benchmarks.  

To date, Scenic Eclipse has completed ten itineraries across Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands.
