Love to Travel to Enrich the Soul

Cruise the world’s most enriching destinations in ultra-luxury on board Scenic Eclipse and experience moments that will leave an imprint on your soul forever.  
Moments of true connection come in a myriad of ways and leave a lasting impression. Perhaps it’s in hearing the haunting sounds of a Weddell Seal in Antarctica or feeling the sea-spray from a whale as it breaches in the air. Maybe it comes from wandering through ancient Turkish ruins as the setting sun casts a golden glow over World Heritage-listed sandstone structures. Or it’s through the historic streets of Japan, where you sip tea in centuries’-old tea houses and meet a Geisha in traditional dress.  
Be among the first to experience a reconnection with the world again during a 6-star, ultra-luxury voyage on board Scenic Eclipse. The crew and team will take great pride in looking after every minute detail, so you can simply enjoy the truly all-inclusive luxury and relax, knowing everything is taken care of. Catch up with your family and friends once more and fully take the time to connect while voyaging on the most remote, exotic and revered oceans of the world.  

Here’s how an experience on board Scenic Eclipse, The World’s First Discovery Yachts™ is designed to gift you countless treasured moments that will enrich the soul.  

Unrivalled experiences that will enrich your journey 

During Discovery and Cruise Voyages on Scenic Eclipse, guests have the opportunity to personalize their journey by taking part in immersive Scenic Enrich experiences or Scenic Freechoice activities.  

Scenic Enrich experiences are exclusive to guests of Scenic, designed to uncover the very essence of a destination through culture, cuisine, people and history. You’ll go behind the scenes, often after-hours and away from crowds, to explore iconic places in depth with the guidance of a cultural expert. In Spain’s Seville for instance, visit one of the town’s oldest bullrings for an exclusive equestrian flamenco performance where you will learn about the traditions of bullfighting and flamenco dance.  
Set your own pace during Scenic Freechoice activities hosted onshore that you can tailor specifically to your own interests. For the adventure-seekers, raft down the crystal-clear Petrohué River located in the oldest national park of Chile; or when visiting La Paz, make your way to San Rafaelito island off the Baja California coastline to snorkel with a colony of Californian sea lions, or spend the day exploring the charming town of La Paz. In Japan, learn the history of the Nagamachi Samurai District in Kanazawa, one of Japan’s most significant cultural and artistic cities.  
On Scenic Eclipse, between all these enriching moments, you’ll also be able to find complete solitude and opportunities for moments of reflection – either at Senses Spa, perhaps enjoying a guided meditation session or aerial yoga class; lounging in our cabanas or swinging chairs with your favorite book in hand; or relaxing in the library or Observation Terrace taking in the surrounding vistas through Swarovski telescopes.

On Expedition Voyages in Polar regions, an up to 20-member team made of historians, geologists, scientists, naturalists and marine biologists, among others, will serve as your guides.
