Scenic Eclipse in Antarctica


Scenic's first ocean vessel, Scenic Eclipse, and sister ship Scenic Eclipse II represents something new and exciting for the luxury expedition market.

The Scenic Eclipse fleet is a rare combination: stylish and elegant ships, with the cutting edge technology and equipment of a state-of-the-art expedition vessel. This is Scenic’s first foray into the world of expedition cruising, having established themselves in the touring and river cruise market, and the ships are equipped with ice-strengthened hulls, helicopters, and even submarines!

Our Insight

Why Scenic?

Scenic is an Australian company, which began in 1986 by offering coach tours along the Great Ocean Road. Over the years the company grew and in 2008 they successfully launched a European river cruise programme, building their own fleet of innovative vessels positioned at the luxury end of the European river cruise market.

In 2019, Scenic launched the much-anticipated discovery yacht, Scenic Eclipse, and with it a new ocean cruise and expedition programme to Antarctica (including lesser-travelled East Antarctica and the Ross Sea), the Arctic, the Americas, Australia's Kimberley Coast, Indonesia and more, with sister ship Scenic Eclipse II joining the fleet in 2023.

With a number of exciting features, these are the most luxurious expedition vessels ever to set sail. Each Scenic Eclipse yacht has an Ice Class 1A Super rating, the highest rating possible (except that of an ice breaker), to allow navigation through the icy waters of the polar regions to reach the most remote landing sites. There is a helicopter and a seven man submersible, plus a fleet of zodiacs to provide the included excursions for the 228 guests (limited to 200 in the polar regions). Kayaks, snorkelling and scuba diving are also available.

Every suite has a private balcony and floor-to-ceiling windows for unrivalled views of the scenery outside, which is a big plus when you are visiting some of the world's most remote and fascinating landscapes.

There are seven dining venues on board, a spa, an indoor heated pool, plunge pools, a gym, a yoga and pilates studio, and a 240-seat theatre, essential for lectures and briefings. All meals, drinks (including premium spirits), gratuities, butler service and WiFi are included, along with a selection of Scenic Freechoice activities and Scenic Enrich special events. The crew to guest ratio is almost 1:1 and you will experience dedicated and personalised service, plus the expertise of a passionate Discovery Team. A Scenic expedition cruise promises extreme adventure but doesn't compromise on luxury and choice on board.
