Scenic Cruises has unveiled a new timelapse video chronicling the build of its newest Discovery Yacht. Scenic Eclipse II will enter service in APR 2023.
The new video highlights the innovation and technology involved in building a luxury expedition yacht.
Scenic Eclipse II, as the name suggests, is a near-identical sister ship to sister yacht Scenic Eclipse. The company says tweaks have been made on the original Scenic Eclipse design based on feedback from guests and crew working aboard. Changes will include enhancements to the Senses Spa and a larger pool and outdoor area.
“We are intent on innovating and raising the game in the ultra-luxury cruise sector and are doing this by refining the on-board experience and delivering exciting new destinations. There is no limit to our ambition, which is what our discerning guests expect.," Lisa McCaskill, VP of Sales and Marketing Canada for Scenic Group, said.
“The addition of Scenic Eclipse II to the fleet continues our mission to bring once-in-a-lifetime exploration to guests. Our Discovery Yachts are unique in that they can handle extreme and diverse conditions, meaning they can go from the icy waters of the Arctic and Antarctic to the warmth of the Caribbean, and explore ports and coves that larger vessels just cannot access."
Both Scenic Eclipse and her upcoming sister ship are equipped with an on-board fleet of Zodiacs, two luxury helicopters and a six-person submarine for destination exploration.
All Scenic Eclipse voyages are inclusive of flights, transfers, dining, premium branded beverages, gratuities, and immersive excursions.
Scenic Eclipse II is scheduled to debut in Lisbon, Portugal in APR 2023. Its inaugural season of sailings will include itineraries in the Mediterranean, Scotland, the Americas, the Caribbean and both Polar regions. In 2024 the ship will also visit Australia, Polynesia and Indonesia.
