SCENIC ECLIPSE: FIRST SAILING DATE AMENDED

Q. What is the new date and destination of the Scenic Eclipse first sailing?

A. The inaugural sailing of Scenic Eclipse will now be August 15, 2019 on the Iceland & Atlantic Canada cruise from Reykjavik to Quebec.

Q. Can you guarantee that if I re-book that my next Eclipse voyage won’t be cancelled?

A. In a very positive development for the Scenic Eclipse build and the Uljanik Group, a consortium comprised of the Croatian DIV group and Italian Shipyard Fincantieri was confirmed on February 7 as the new owner of Uljanik. Accordingly, Scenic is confident that these new owners will bring stability and focus to current and future ship builds.

Accordingly, the Scenic Group has signed a letter of intent with the new consortium that will lead the shipyard to set up a new Discovery Yacht division within the restructured Uljanik group. This new joint venture will be fully focused on completing Scenic Eclipse and on expediting the build of the second Scenic Eclipse.
