SCENIC Eclipse has shrugged off multiple delivery delays to finally set sail on her maiden voyage from Reykjavik to  Quebec.

The mid-August voyage sees the ship spending 13 days at sea before she starts exploring the planet with an emphasis on exploring remote regions like the Arctic and Antarctica as well as less-visited locations in between.

“Today is the fruition of many years of planning and work from a large and dedicated team to create a vessel and an experience which has set a brand new benchmark in ultra-luxury discovery cruising,” says Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours’ founder Glen Moroney.

“We are extremely proud of this ship and what it brings to the world of cruising, and in terms of innovation, technology and design it is second to none.

“Our hand-crafted itineraries that take our guests to 38 countries in some of the world’s most stunning and remote locations.”

The craft carries 228 guests, and only 200 in the Arctic and Antarctica, with a company media release noting “Scenic Eclipse takes ocean cruising to a whole new level marrying discovery with the ultimate in safety and sustainability and giving guests the opportunity to explore beyond what was previously imaginable”.

When it comes to accommodation there are 114 verandah suites as well as 10 dining options from Asian Fusion and fine French dining to a chef’s table and poolside buffet, and SENSES spa with a well-equipped gym.

There are two six-guest helicopters and one six-guest submarine capable of depths of nearly 200m, a state-of-the-art theatre for entertainment and lectures, indoor and outdoor plunge pools, butler service for all guests, and an almost 1:1 guest-to-staff ratio.

And then there’ s the technology including zero-speed stabilizer fins, which are 50 per cent larger than standard to cut roll by more than 85 per cent, and the highest passenger ship ice-class rating.

Scenic Eclipse also boasts a GPS dynamic positioning system allowing for stationary positioning without an anchor which reduces environmental impact and enhances safety during Zodiac operations.
