Ultra-luxury meets discovery in North and Central America

Be inspired by glaciers calving along Alaska’s whale-rich Inside Passage. Choose a winery to explore along America’s surf coast. Kayak among manta rays in the turquoise waters of Baja’s Sea of Cortez or set off to birdwatch amidst Central America’s most enchanting tropical rainforests. Every day on board Scenic Eclipse, begins with the promise of new discoveries.


Dawn’s pale hue plays across your ultra-luxury suite as the gentle lap of waves urges you from your Scenic Slumber Bed. Step out onto your private verandah, breathing in vanilla scents of pure Costa Rican rainforest and delight in a chorus of cicadas, frogs and the impressive boom of howler monkeys. Soon the smell of fresh coffee pervades, as your personal butler delivers your morning brew.

Your Morning

As you prepare for the day, be assured that your Journey Designer has organised bespoke excursions and activities that offer you the best the region has to offer. Whether it’s the unique, exclusive performances of Scenic Enrich, Scenic Freechoice’s program of up to six diverse excursions daily that match your pace and interests, or unique activities with our expert Scenic Discovery guides, the experience will be authentic and one you’ll treasure forever. 

In Baja and Costa Rica

For example, on the Baja and Costa Rica Discovery voyage, choose between a walking tour of La Paz, the laid-back Mexican capital of Baja California Sur, which includes a snack at Hotel California, inspiration for the Eagle’s hit song; swimming and snorkelling with California sea lions off San Rafaelito Island or joining your Discovery Guide on a kayak or paddleboard excursion from white sand beaches into the birdlife-rich mangrove stands of Ballandra Bay.

In Huatilco, Mexica

In Huatulco, Mexico, explore the foods from 16 distinct indigenous groups that call this region of Oaxaca home; snorkel or dive in Huatulco National Park, a land and sea reserve for hundreds of species including armadillos, hummingbirds, pelicans, black iguanas, dolphins, whales and turtles; or swim in the turquoise waters of Bahía de Cacaluta.

Afternoon Relaxation 

During the day, return to the ultra-luxury of your Discovery Yacht. Choose lunch at one of several dining experiences, from the casual to contemporary fine dining. Enjoy a cooling dip in one of the Vitality Pools or warm water sporting activities ranging from our stand-up paddleboarding and kayaking programs, to water-skiing, snorkelling and inflatable sail boats. Sign out an E-bike to explore the local surrounds, then return to our spacious 550 Senses Spa for the pure indulgence of rejuvenating treatments* or stretch tightening muscles in our POWER: Gym, or PURE: Yoga and Pilates studio.

Afternoon Exploration 

Expand your explorations further by adding one of our next-level excursions that take you above, below and beyond the horizon. The two, state-of-the-art, helicopters^ on board Scenic Eclipse are designed for flightseeing, (think aerial views of the active stratovolcano, Izalco, “Lighthouse of the Pacific” near Acajutla, El Salvador) and heli-hiking. Or board Scenic Neptune, our customised submarine^, to reveal underwater wonders like the reefs and tropical fish beneath Costa Rica’s turquoise waters of Bahia Culebra.

Evening Enrichment

A Scenic Enrich encounter will take you behind the scenes to enjoy cultural moments inaccessible to the ordinary traveller, like an exclusive performance by the smooth-gaited Peruvian Paso horses on our Andean Coastal Exploration.

Evening Dining

After dinner at one of Scenic Eclipse’s 10 world-class dining experiences, what better way to finish the day than with live music or a nightcap in one of our nine bars and lounges, as the west coast of North or Central America drifts past.
