With Kara’s team by your side, you can expect to experience up-close, unforgettable Antarctic experiences that will make memories lasting a lifetime.

Go beyond Antarctica: experience the white wonder from underwater and up above


Being able to visit Antarctica is one thing, but to experience its majesty from the skies, up above in Scenic Eclipse’s on board Airbus EC-130-T2 helicopters, is something else entirely. Guests will also have the chance to dive deep underwater in the World’s First Discovery Yacht’s U-Boat Worx Cruise Submarine 7, seeing the amazing polar region from a very different perspective. Seating up to six people, and built with an optimal viewing experience as a focus, our optional submarine excursions take this already once-in-a-lifetime experience to new levels of ultra-exclusivity.

*Helicopter and submarine activities are weather permitting, may incur additional costs and are subject to availability.

Taste the delicious range of international cuisine available on board Scenic Eclipse


Having access to 90 on board catering staff means that guests are never left short of world-class dining options. From Lumière, Scenic Eclipse’s elegant French restaurant, through to Koko’s delectable Asian fusion and the expansive, spacious, 104-capacity à la carte restaurant, Elements, you can expect to have access to a wide range of premium cuisine each and every night.
