Scenic Eclipse

Scenic Eclipse, the most luxurious polar cruiser, is operated by the Scenic Group – a leading global tour operator for luxury river and ocean travel. She is the first ocean faring vessel and the flagship of the Scenic Group. The Vessel was built in 2019 at the Uljanik Shipyard in Pula, Croatia. Scenic Eclipse was formally named by actress Helen Mirren in New York City on September 10, 2019.

Scenic Eclipse has a gross tonnage of 17,545. There are two helicopters on board for trips to distant places, as well as a six-meter-long submarine that can dive to a depth of 330 meters below the ocean surface to allow guests to experience an unforgettable and unique adventure.

The Scenic Eclipse can house a Specialist Discovery Team (up to 20 members) and offers the opportunity for unrivalled worldwide exploration. An almost 1:1 staff-to-guest ratio for only up to 228 onboard guests (200 for Polar voyages) ensures a truly all-inclusive indulgence.

Scenic Eclipse also offers the highest level of service to her guests with a special gourmet experience – as many as ten restaurants with diverse menus, ranging from Asian to French cuisine, as well as numerous entertainment and recreational facilities.
