Scenic Eclipse update
The first sailing date for Scenic Eclipse, the World’s First Discovery Yacht has been amended to April 13, 2019.
Due to the continuing financial issues at Uljanik shipyard and the resultant strike by specialist engine and systems commissioning workers, this part of the ships completion has been delayed.
Scenic has been in constant contact with the shipyard, workers representatives and the Government to ensure the completion of the ship as soon as possible, due to those efforts, more than 600 workers that are still on board each week day. The progress on the ship’s interiors and other areas of the final build stage have seen far less impact from the industrial action and continue to progress at good pace.
The specialist commissioning team returned to work progressively last week however it will not be possible to catch up the now almost six weeks’ time lost due to strikes in this area.
We acknowledge the regrettable impact this has on guests and understand their disappointment at this change in sailing date. We are reaching out to all guests and travel agents impacted by the change to provide details on compensation and future travel needs.
Scenic Eclipse sets a whole new benchmark in design, innovation and luxury. With its commitment to world-class safety, innovation in design and quality appointments throughout, offering guests the experience of discovering the world in all-inclusive luxury remains Scenic’s primary focus.
