Defining a new era of luxury and discovery

Scenic Eclipse is built for adventure – from the on board discovery fleet of Zodiacs and kayaks taking you beyond the horizon to the expertly curated itineraries taking you to exciting parts of the world that, until now, have been inaccessible to the ordinary traveller. 
Our Journey Designers have hand-picked each Scenic Freechoice activity designed for adventure seekers looking for new and unique experiences in some of the world’s most extreme yet awe-inspiring locations.
From the enigmatic and breathtakingly beautiful Polar regions to the paradise charms of the Caribbean; Scenic Eclipse will transport you to incredible locations where you can adventure across land, over water or under the ocean.

All-Inclusive Discovery

Scenic Eclipse

Our Discovery Leaders are experts in their fields. They will share their insights into the environment, history and culture of each region - as well as their personal highlights - so you are ready to explore the many horizons that await onshore. 

In the Arctic regions, our 18 passionate Discovery Team experts will facilitate Scenic Discovery excursions by Zodiac and kayak, taking you ashore for landings with guided walks assisting your exploration of wildlife and nature.
