Scenic Eclipse 1

Explore the polar regions at the height of luxury on the world's first 6* discovery yacht with onboard submersibles and helicopters.

Introducing Scenic Eclipse

The world's first discovery yacht, the 6-star Scenic Eclipse, sets a new benchmark for ultra-luxury polar exploration and cruising. Designed with the look and feel of a super yacht more than an expedition ship, Scenic Eclipse is built to explore the polar regions in comfort and style. Featuring a class 1A super ice rating, this is a go-anywhere ship that can safely navigate the furthest reaches of the polar regions. 

The ship offers the most luxurious suites in the polar regions, with 114 incredibly spacious and elegant all-veranda suites. With 200 guests in Antarctica, the ship is highly spacious for its size. Onboard guests can enjoy an outstanding dining experience from a range of ten options in seven venues previously unseen in a ship this size. 

In the air, underwater and on the shore, the expedition experience is at the heart of the Scenic Eclipse with a fleet of 12 Zodiacs and kayaks led by the ship's outstanding discovery team. The ship has two six-seater twin-engine helicopters and a seven-seater submarine for guests who want an added adventure level.
