Scenic Eclipse Cruises Now For Sale

Posted February 14th, 2016

One of the most highly anticipated cruising vessels is now taking bookings for future journeys. Luxury cruise line, Scenic Tours, has just released the 2018/19 holiday brochure for its newest and most extravagant ship, Scenic Eclipse.

The 'World's First Discovery Yacht' is a unique addition to the market, boasting 6-star luxury throughout its 114 all-verandah suites, six onboard dining options and 450-square-metre spa sanctuary.

There's space for a total of 228 guests on each journey, so tickets are going to sellout fast, especially for the ultra-luxurious 233-square-metre, two-bedroom Owner's Penthouse Suite.

All guests will be treated to Scenic's signature all-inclusive opulence, along with a surprising amount of extras.

This will be complemented by a rich selection of destinations accessible via two onboard helicopters and a seven-seat submarine – truly unique sightseeing possibilities await.

The brochure includes every single itinerary along with preview pricing. Unfortunately, this is just a taste of what's to come, and travellers will have to wait until after Scenic Eclipse's official launch date (31 August, 2018) to experience this world-first cruising adventure.

The ship's maiden voyage will start in Istanbul and finish in Venice, followed by a collection of the world's must-visit destinations including Antarctica, Europe and the Norwegian Fjords. Here are some previews of what guests can expect from each location.

The Americas

Travellers will be able to select from two itineraries focussing on Cuba, with visits to Havana and national parks. Panama, Colombia, Ecuador and the Chilean Fjords will also be options.


Choose from three journeys into the 'Great White Continent'. Antarctica showcases its magnificence with vast icescapes, naturally-remarkable environments and historic places such as the Falkland Islands.

Europe & The Mediterranean

Six itineraries designed by experienced travellers highlight the best of Europe and the Mediterranean. Venice, Turkey, Greece and the British Isles are just some of the spectacular destinations where you can find culture, nature and exotic flavours.

The Arctic & Fjords

One of the world's most memorable destinations will be thoroughly covered by Scenic Eclipse's six cruising itineraries. Natural wonders, such as the Northern Lights, intermingle with fascinating traditions along the Viking trail from Norway to Quebec.

Ben Stower

I love the kind of travelling that is one part strategic planning and two parts spontaneous adventure. Whether I'm exploring my local city or a small town in the middle of nowhere, I'm always hoping to find something no one else has discovered.
