Short Description:
The ship was designed by Scenic’s COO, Glen Moroney, and took three years to design.
With the mega-yacht Scenic Eclipse, the river cruise tour company Scenic Cruises entered the ocean cruise market.
Scenic is describing the vessel as the "world's first discovery yacht;" it has the highest passenger ship ice-class (1A Super) allowing it to operate on Arctic and Antarctica cruise itineraries 3 months a year. The ship's passenger capacity is limited to 200 during polar cruise expeditions (Antarctic and Arctic itineraries), in order to operate several landings per day.
The ship's own helicopters (each with capacity 7 passengers) can be booked/hired at extra charge. Helicopter tours allow passengers to get closer to the wildlife in comparison to the Zodiac landings. Also at an additional charge can be booked the ship's onboard submarine.

Scenic Eclipse's "Inaugural Cruise" was original scheduled for August 31, 2018. Due to financial problems and strikes at the Uljanik Shipyard the delivery time is delayed several times.

The vessel has an almost 1:1 passenger-to-crew ratio and each stateroom are served by a dedicated butler. Staterooms sizes range between 345 ft2 / 32 m2 (Veranda Suite) to 2660 ft2 / 247 m2 (2-Bedroom Penthouse Suite). The Owners Penthouse Suite is sized 2507 ft2 (235 m2). Each of the ship's 114 cabins has a private balcony and separate lounge area.

  • "It was a real pleasure to take Scenic Eclipse out to sea for the first time,” stated Captain James Griffiths. “Sea trials are a critical milestone in the construction process as it is the first time all the ship systems are operated together and is a key opportunity to confirm the theoretical information from the tank tests and computer modelling. The results from these trials surpassed every expectation.
  • I have worked extensively with (pods) on other ships like Scenic Eclipse’s, and these sea trials confirmed to me how incredibly versatile and powerful they are, particularly when coupled with our oversized Bow Thrusters. I was also delighted with how quiet the ship is. She was vibration free and virtually silent during all our trials, exceeding our expectations in terms of stability, manoeuvrability and performance. Scenic Eclipse really does manage to combine small ship manoeuvrability with big ship levels of comfort and quietness; it’s quite remarkable to experience it."
  • Scenic will be fitted with a dynamic positioning system that uses GPS to accurately maintain the vessel’s position, which is also an eco-friendly way to control the ship.State-of-the-art fins that can adjust themselves will enable the ship to handle the strongest water movements and to remain stable, even at zero speeds.It will feature custom-built stabilisers that are 50% larger than other ships and an ice-strengthened hull. Polar Class 6 rating, the highest passenger ship ice-class rating
