Scenic has announced that the 200 guests aboard the World’s First Discovery Yacht, Scenic Eclipse, will step beyond a solar eclipse to view a total solar eclipse. On 04DEC, 2021, Scenic Eclipse will be purposefully positioned at Antarctica’s South Sandwich Island allowing guests to be in full view of the solar eclipse when it takes place. Two former NASA scientists will also join the sailing to further educate guests on the eclipse and other space related topics.
The eclipse will take place on the 20-day Antarctica, South Georgia & Falkland Islands with Solar Eclipse, departing 21NOV, 2021. The itinerary will give guests the opportunity to view landscapes and wildlife unseen elsewhere as well as learn about a variety of topics from true experts.
Scenic’s on board Discovery Team of more than a dozen leading experts will be joined by two former NASA scientists and a world-renowned astrologer for this adventure: Dr Karen Knierman, a lecturer in Astrophysics at the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University, will relate her experience working with the Hubble Space Telescope studying star formation in colliding galaxies; Dr Patrick Young, an Associate Professor of Astrophysics and Astrobiology also from the School of Earth and Space Exploration at Arizona State University, explains the life and death of stars; and Rachel Frances Gordon, an internationally recognized intuitive consultant, educator, and speaker, who has been providing astrological and intuitive consultations since 1980.
Adding to the opportunity to learn from these leaders in their fields are the unique exploration amenities aboard Scenic Eclipse. The yacht’s two helicopters allow guests the opportunity to take in views of Antarctica not often seen while its six-guest submarine, Scenic Neptune, is the first permitted submersible to operate in South Georgian waters, and is capable of diving to 1,000 feet, opening up the world below the horizon where an abundance of rich marine life thrives in their own environment.
Scenic is offering special Super Earlybird savings of up to 20% on this sailing when fares are paid in full upon booking. All bookings are covered by Scenic’s flexible booking policy, enabling guests to defer their cruise to another travel date or itinerary up to 60 days prior to departure.
