Scenic Eclipse II sets sail

Brand new Discovery Yacht, Scenic Eclipse II, has launched on her inaugural sailing from Lisbon.

The 551ft ultra-luxury vessel features 114 suites for a maximum of 220 guests, up to ten dining experiences, a 550-square-metre spa and has two helicopters and its own submarine for guest excursions.

Scenic Eclipse II will operate a debut summer season sailing the Mediterranean before visiting the UK in September with a round-Scotland sailing.

Scenic Cruises’ UK and Ireland MD Richard Twynam said:The addition of Scenic Eclipse II to our fleet is a fantastic moment for our business and presents huge opportunities for our trade partners.

“Forward bookings already prove there is strong demand for our ultra-luxury exploration cruises and we know that this is only going to increase as we spread the word about these once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

“Having developed our sales operation, we are now looking forward to welcoming as many agents on board as possible. I can’t wait until the new yacht comes to England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland later this year.”
