The Cultural Diversity of Europe Awaits you

In 2022 and 2023, Scenic Eclipse will be cruising around Europe and the glistening Mediterranean Sea for the first time, offering unparalleled ultra-luxury and exploring this much-loved destination.

The appeal of Europe only strengthens over time – with curious and discerning travellers lured by the history, grand architecture, traditions, culture, cuisine and glamour, that is synonymous with this diverse continent.

Now, you can discover several fascinating European destinations on board Scenic Eclipse, The World’s First Discovery Yachts™. With no more than 228 guests on board the 6-star, state-of-the-art vessel, the experience is like cruising these azzure waters in the luxury of your own private yacht – with your own Captain, culinary and hotel crew, including expert Discovery Team members there to take care of your every need so you can revel in a truly all-inclusive voyage.

ABOVE: Scenic Eclipse

Venture beyond the horizon, with Scenic Eclipse’s two state-of-the-art Airbus H130-T2 helicopters^, custom-designed for optimal guest flightseeing and excursions. Dive below the Mediterranean or Aegean Sea for an unforgettable experience on board the submarine Scenic Neptune^, custom-built for ease of viewing and unique excursions.

Europe is adorned with picture-postcard towns, lining the balmy, historic and surreal Aegean and Mediterranean coastal regions. Learn the stories behind the historic cobblestone streets and sun-lit boulevards of Spain and Portugal on handcrafted journeys filled with unique treasures. Discover the Baroque beauty and thatched roofed cottages, plus marine terrestrial parks and birdlife in Western Europe with our expert Discovery team, whose passion and enthusiasm will enable you to gain deep insights and inspiration from the natural landscapes and hidden jewels.

Due to its custom designed proportions and 168m length, Scenic Eclipse is able to dock right in the heart of small ports and historic cities that are inaccessible to larger cruise ships. Guests can simply disembark and begin exploring – either on our guided Scenic Enrich experiences or explore by e-Bike at your own pace.

LEFT: Scenic Neptune, Submarine

Imagine boarding a private motorboat in the Italian port of Lipari and sailing across sparkling waters to Vulcano, a small island in the Eolie Archipelago. For some, a gentle walk to mud baths and thermal springs awaits, while others take a hike into the alien landscape of the 386-metre Gran Crater.

Visit the archaeological dig at Despotiko, an uninhabited islet southwest of Paros to see what treasures it yields; or join environmental experts on a beach clean-up along Mar Menor, Spain and learn about modern recycling programs and take part in the transformation process.

Be immersed in the opulent glamour towns of St Tropez and Monte Carlo. From the narrow, cobbled streets of Sorrento and Santorini to the electric blue waters and remote beaches of Croatia, a range of truly all-inclusive excursions await.

BELOW: Mykonos, Greece

Capture the reflective light and geometric shadows in the narrow alleys of Chora on a photography tour of Patmos, including panoramic views from Profit Ilias, the island’s summit, with an 11th Century monastery as a focal point. On Mykonos, join a mosaic-making workshop under the tutelage of renowned artist, Irene Syrianou, and create a unique work of art to take home.

The up to four-member Discovery Team has created a unique program designed with an expeditionary approach, to this much-visited region of the world. The team will create one-of-a-kind experiences for guests, such as remote beach landings on secluded islands where they will offer lunch and bar service. Guest can choose from several water sport activities including snorkelling, paddleboarding and kayaking; plus hiking with a naturalist and more.

In these remote locations, the Scenic Neptune submarine^ will be able to dive along sea walls, corals reefs and possibly among local shipwrecks. If guests prefer aerial views, arrange a trip in one of the helicopters^ and be whisked off for a round of heli-golf, a mountain bike ride or to visit local vineyards.

RIGHT: Watersports activities

As Scenic Eclipse cruises its way along the picturesque Riviera to the pristine warm waters of the Cycladic Islands, dine on the finest cuisine that will reflect European and Mediterranean flavours at one of the 10 on board dining experiences. You can even disembark and Shop with a Chef at a local market, before coming back to make a meal at the Scenic Epicure masterclass.

Commencing in April 2022, Scenic Eclipse will begin departures in Lisbon, operating a number of voyages through the Mediterranean and Western Europe. Guests can also seamlessly connect to a number of Scenic escorted land journeys – either pre- or post-cruise – throughout Italy, Greece or Scandinavia.
