 Scenic has announced the launch of the world’s First Discovery Yacht, the Scenic Eclipse.

 
The new ship will embark on its maiden voyage August 31, 2018, sailing from Istanbul to Venice, followed by discovery voyages to the Americas, Antarctica, Europe and the Mediterranean, and the Arctic and Norwegian Fjords. Scenic Eclipse will be a six-star all-inclusive mega yacht. 
 
The Scenic Eclipse will carry 228 guests in 114 all-veranda suites, ranging from the 344 square foot Verandah Suite to the 2,500 square foot, two-bedroom Owner’s Penthouse Suite.
 
The Scenic Eclipse will have two helicopters for excursions as well as a seven-seat submarine. A fleet of Zodiacs and kayaks will be onboard along with scuba diving and snorkeling equipment.
 
“Our goal with Scenic Eclipse was to open up the private Discovery Yacht experience so that our guests could discover regions previously only visited by a fortunate few,” said Managing Director of Scenic UK Chris Townson.
 
Scenic also said there is an option for a second ship to be delivered in June 2019. 
 
Scenic Eclipse will also use zero-speed stabilizer fins, 50 percent larger than standard, to provide stability, even while the ship is stationary. The ship will also have the highest passenger ship ice class rating – Polar Class 6 (Ice Class 1A Super). For Arctic and Antarctica cruises, guest numbers will be limited to 200, which the line said enables more landings per day for each guest.
 
The Scenic Eclipse joins Scenic’s fleet of 21 river cruise ships.
