The Scenic Eclipse
Humankind began building vessels to sail the oceans thousands of years ago. Since then, our pursuit to build larger and better-equipped ships has not ceased.
To outdo their competitors, Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours has created a six-star cruise ship that is probably the safest, most luxurious, and most technologically advanced in the world. She goes by the name of Scenic Eclipse.
Thanks to advances in technology and maritime security, the company has managed to unlock destinations that until now were impossible to visit given their difficult access. But the Scenic Eclipse can travel trough the most rugged ocean routes with minimal impact on its passengers.
The Scenic Eclipse—able to accommodate 228 guests—will make her first trip on August 31, 2018. The sumptuous maiden voyage will navigate from Istanbul to Venice before sailing to America, Antarctica, Europe, and the Mediterranean, as well as the Arctic and the stunning Norwegian fjords.
The company promises its customers unparalleled luxury from the moment they board the ship. Her opulent suites are divided into six different models: Verandah Suites, Deluxe Verandah Suites, Spa Suites, Grand Panorama Suites, Owner's Penthouse Suites and the Two-Bedroom Penthouse Suite.
All are unique, spacious, well designed, elegantly decorated, and boast a private terrace, bedroom and living room with floor to ceiling windows. The luxurious accommodations are appointed with the best toiletries, linens, and amenities expected of a 5-star hotel.
They offer large-size beds, a choice of pillows, deluxe furnishings, HDTV and above all, a private terrace--a balcony to the world--from where guests can admire captivating sunsets, watch the marine life, enjoy meals or just relax with a good book.
Moreover, the Scenic Eclipse will have butler service, 24 hours room service and land and sea excursions led by expert guides.
This ship, which features a spa, a heated indoor pool and fitness center, will offer up to six different dining options on board, including Asian fusion, contemporary French haute cuisine, and excellent Italian fare.
As an additional attraction, the chefs will use local products and prepare foods inspired by the different regions visited, to offer original and tasty dishes of the highest quality.
For the most adventurous travelers, the Scenic Eclipse has a submarine aboard to peer into the depths of the oceans, as well as Zodiac boats for visits to remote places and a helicopter to observe the natural wonders of our planet. Some in the industry already claim that the Scenic Eclipse will mark a before-and-after in the world of luxury cruises.
