Scenic Eclipse

The World's First Discovery Yachts

The Scenic Eclipse fleet sets the standard in ocean cruising in terms of technology, size and luxury. State-of-the-art safety features allow us to unlock destinations others can only dream of.

Designed to deliver the ultimate experience of a lifetime for only 228 guests, only 200 in the Arctic and Antarctica, the Scenic Eclipse fleet takes ocean cruising to a whole new level – marrying luxury, discovery and safety, and giving guests the opportunity to explore above and beyond what was previously imaginable.

From nature to cultural encounters, and historic cities to ancient monuments, Scenic Eclipse is sure to feature a voyage that excites you.


April 12, 2019 – We are very pleased to report that build progress in all areas of Scenic Eclipse has been moving along well.

We did have to deal with a weeklong shipyard workers’ strike that took place at the end of March, resulting in a near halt to work onboard. Although this strike did not involve any of the workers assigned to Scenic Eclipse, it did cause a delay in some commissioning and other works onboard as most of our sub contractors were prevented from boarding the ship.

To make up for this short interruption, we have extended shifts during the week and increased weekend workers capacity in order to regain lost time and are currently at full production. We are confident the build schedule will progress as planned and Scenic Eclipse will launch on time.

All mechanical systems are complete with commissioning progressing well. All four main engines have been fully load tested and the ship is now operating under its own power. The highly efficient ABB Azipod propulsion system commissioning is progressing well with starboard pod providing thrust in harbor testing.

Scenic Eclipse’s first sea trial is planned for the end of May and further updates will be given at that time.
