TD breaking news – Scenic launch expedition yacht

Scenic Eclipse to cruise oceans from 2018

Australian owned & operated luxury travel company Scenic has tonight confirmed its entry into ocean cruising, revealing plans to launch its first vessel in 2018.

Three years in the planning, Scenic Eclipse is dubbed as the world’s first “Discovery Yacht” and will operate over 20 cruise itineraries around the globe.

The 114-suite ship will feature two twin-engine helicopters, custom-built zodiacs, a 240-seat theatre, heated pools and even its own submarine.

A promotional video for the product describes Scenic Eclipse as “the point in the map where luxury meets discovery”.

Scenic owner Glen Moroney announced the new ship at a gala event, saying the 16,500-gross tonne vessel takes its inspiration from mega-yachts and elevates ocean cruising to a completely new level in terms of technology and innovation.

“It’s a whole new step for our company,” Moroney said.

Scenic Eclipse will feature five restaurants offering guests Pan Asian, Contemporary French and Italian fine-dining options from world-class chefs, four lounges, a spa, spacious public areas, jacuzzis, spas and heated pool with retractable roof. 

With itineraries covering polar regions, Moroney said the most important element of Scenic Eclipse was the safety and comfort of guests, with the discovery yacht positioned in the Ice Class – 1A Super category – a new benchmark for passenger ships.

A preview brochure of Scenic Elipse will be released in coming weeks.
