A Scenic Eclipse cruise: luxury without exception

Famed American writer Henry Miller once said, “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.”

Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours offers a chance to see things differently with an ultra luxury cruising experience that combines a wealth of world-class facilities with the opportunity for unrivalled exploration.

Celebrating 33 years of providing all-inclusive escorted tours to fascinating destinations around the world, Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours recently unveiled the World’s First Discovery Yacht, Scenic Eclipse. The extravagant vessel, which took its maiden voyage earlier this summer, marries handcrafted itineraries to some of the rarest destinations in the world with uncompromising on-board six-star luxury.

Voyage to Antarctica, the Norwegian Fjords or the Mediterranean and beyond in one of Scenic Eclipse’s 114 all-verandah suites spread out across five decks that range in size from 345 to 2,659 square feet. Each suite comes with all the amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel, including Scenic Slumber beds, Egyptian cotton linen, a pillow menu and even butler service.

And with an almost 1:1 staff-to-guest ratio, guests’ time on board will be one of unparalleled indulgence. Scenic Eclipse caps its polar cruises to just 200 guests, and 228 for non-polar regions.

The popular Panorama Suites are punctuated by grandeur and style. Private, curved terraces, separate lounge and dining areas, elegant bathrooms and a spacious bedroom suite add up to a personal paradise on the way to … paradise.

Spa Suites, meanwhile, take indulgence and relaxation to a new level with four-poster king-size Scenic Slumber Beds, double-size Philippe Starck-designed spa baths, separate living rooms with lounges and private verandas. The Verandah Suites similarly offer king-sized beds, private verandahs, separate lounge areas and luxury bathroom amenities.

For the ultimate in luxury, the two Owner’s Penthouse Suites offer 2,099 square feet of space along with a 646-square-foot terrace and lounge area. These exclusive units also offer spectacular views from the bow of the yacht, along with two bedrooms, a private Jacuzzi, private dining area for up to eight guests, and a bathroom that includes a dual steam shower, therapeutic spa bath and powder room.

The luxurious wonders on board abound throughout the Scenic Eclipse — from the ultimate Senses Spa to the expansive array of lounges and bars, outdoor terraces, theatre halls and multiple pool areas.

Senses Spa features 5,920 square feet of pure indulgence and tranquility, including an extensive menu of rejuvenating treatments and an impressive range of indoor and outdoor spaces — from the Scandinavian-inspired plunge pools to saunas, gender-specific steam rooms and even specialist experience showers.

For those looking to maintain fitness goals, Scenic Eclipse has a separate yoga and Pilates studio and state-of-the-art gym. Choose a class or follow your own fitness routine in brightly lit rooms that offer serene ocean views.

From strengthening your core to feeding your soul, Scenic Eclipse also offers room to explore. The Observation Lounge is a perfect place to spend some quiet time or engage in a game of chess, while the Sun Terrace allows you to soak in a perfect sunset. How about a lively performance in the theatre? It’s all at your fingertips.
