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.
