Another major milestone in Scenic’s history as just last week, Scenic Eclipse II, the newest of two, six-star ultra-luxury discovery yachts in the Scenic fleet, sailed into Sydney Harbour for the first time to commence two years’ of voyages in Australia, New Zealand, Oceania, Japan and East Antarctica

Guests enjoy an extensive range of all-inclusive dining, beverages and wellness options on board, while immersive experiences await on shore with handcrafted Scenic Freechoice activities and our exclusive Scenic Enrich events program.

On Scenic Eclipse Expedition and Discovery voyages, exploration is enhanced by an expert Discovery Team, who will lead fascinating discoveries in remote landscapes.

Combining innovative design, state-of-the-art technology and a world-class crew, Scenic Eclipse, The World’s First Discovery Yachts™, has set the benchmark in ultra-luxury cruising.

Catering to no more than 228 guests (200 in Polar regions), the custom-built Discovery Yacht offers the comforts of a luxurious six-star hotel – only this goes with you as you travel.

We’re talking unparalleled access to Europe’s most alluring destinations as only a sleek superyacht can offer.

At just 168m long, Scenic Eclipse’s world-class design enables access to small lively ports off the beaten track where larger ships can’t dock.

In Spain, for example, where most ships sail away after a brief stop in Cádiz, Scenic Eclipse will take you further inland into the city’s fascinating history and charming atmosphere.

Discover Lisbon’s historic architecture and fantastic cuisine or experience the regional flavours of Portofino and Sicily.

Europe’s summer playground is even more enticing onboard Scenic Eclipse, because you can enjoy the glorious beaches of Spain’s Balearic Islands by Zodiac, kayaking along the towering cliffs of Gozo, or snorkelling the coast of Corsica.

Or why not take your exploration further by soaring above in one of the two onboard helicopters^ or diving in the deep blue Mediterranean Sea on our custom-built submersible^?

If icy landscapes and whale watching takes your fancy, Scenic Eclipse’s world-class design and technology are also a point of difference when exploring the remote Arctic, Antarctica and East Antarctica. Custom-built for polar waters, the Discovery Yachts have a Polar Class 6 rating, featuring a strengthened hull, forward bow thrusters and advanced propulsion systems.

With customised stabilisers that are 50% larger than other ships, the Discovery Yachts offer comfortable and smooth sailing through the roughest of waters, so you can relax and enjoy every step of your journey while reaching destinations few have ever visited.

The expert Discovery Team on board, comprised of up to 20 members, including naturalists, marine biologists and glaciologists, will guide you through an incredible exploration of icebergs, glaciers and fjords and unforgettable wildlife moments.

Keep your eyes peeled for glimpses of polar bears and other rare wildlife like narwhals and beluga whales.

On board, back from a day exploring Europe’s hidden gems or the Antarctica’s impressive scenery, enjoy an abundance of sophisticated spaces for the ultimate ultra-luxury meets discovery experience.

Savour the fine creations of the culinary team with up to 10 dining experiences that will take you on a remarkable culinary journey.

Choose from a world of options, from contemporary French fine dining at Lumière (pictured above) to authentic dishes at Night Market @ Koko’s, a celebration of Asian cuisine. Unlimited premium beverages are included at any time of the day and can be enjoyed in the nine bars and lounges or in the privacy of your suite.

When it’s time to get some rest, the spacious suites are your sanctuary.
