The World’s First Discovery Yachts

We invite you on board Scenic Eclipse, The World’s First Discovery Yachts™. Explore the far horizons of the globe led by a team of experts whose passion and enthusiasm will help you unlock all the wonders of the destinations to which you are travelling, and the sheer enjoyment of travelling on this world-class ultra-luxury yacht.
Scenic Eclipse is unlike any other cruise ships in the world. They are essentially mega-yachts, designed and looking far more like yachts than any traditional cruise ship. Yet one of the most technologically advanced vessels to be found in the world today.

Perfectly designed for safe navigation through all waters and sensitive marine environments. An advanced Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) system operates throughout the ships and guest’s suites, providing 100 per cent fresh air through both UVC and HEPA filter treatments, meaning that there is no recirculated air passing between suites and public spaces. These advanced features are also coupled with state-of-the-art technology and ships design, GPS dynamic positioning system, forward bow thrusters and an electronic Azipod propulsion system.

The on board technology allows us to operate efficiently in compliance with and in excess of all of the current environmental regulations in each port we visit around the world, where we leave a very small footprint.
