#expeditioncruising .

Scenic has announced updates on the construction of the highly anticipated second ultra-luxury Discovery Yacht, Scenic Eclipse II. With its innovative design, state-of-the-art technology and unrivalled discovery, a new era of expedition cruising will arrive when Scenic Eclipse II sets sail. With construction in its final stages and progressing as planned, Scenic Eclipse II’s inaugural voyage will be the 11-Day Incredible Iberian Discovery, from Lisbon to Barcelona, departing on 13 April 2023.
The development of the ship build is showcased in a newly released video from Vice-President of Marine Operations, James Griffiths.
“Scenic Eclipse II is being built to the very highest standards, so she is really built from the bottom up to operate in the most extreme environments in the world and includes all the latest technologies available. She is able to go places that the absolute vast majority of cruise ships are unable to visit. We are also the only operator to carry two permanent helicopters^ and a submarine^ on board and add a unique perspective for our guests, by flying high above and also diving 200 metres below the ocean. Scenic Eclipse is the ultimate ultra-luxury yacht to cruise in regions around the world” said Vice President of Marine Operations, James Griffiths.
All Scenic Eclipse voyages are truly all-inclusive, meaning guests can leave their wallets in a safe place and relax, knowing everything is taken care of. Internal flights, transfers, fine dining experiences, premium branded beverages and once-in-a-lifetime immersive excursions are all included in the price you pay.
Scenic Eclipse II new enhancements  
• Scenic Eclipse I has already set the benchmark in wellness, with its expansive Senses Spa complete with dedicated male and female wellness areas appointed with saunas, a steam room, colour and cold therapies with relaxation lounges and a manicure/pedicure studio. The outdoor terrace is a popular space for guests with relaxation lounges and a vitality spa.
• The Discovery Yacht also features the only dedicated Yoga and Pilates studio for a ship its size. Scenic Eclipse II will continue this commitment, with the expansion of the steam room area to include aromatherapy and integrated ice fountain and experience showers, plus, the introduction of KLAFS custom salt therapy lounge with heated beds, enhanced with
aromatherapy scents designed to benefit mind, body and soul.
• Due to the success of the state-of-the-art KLAFS Infrared chairs featured in the Senses Spa on Scenic Eclipse I which are designed to relieve back pain and encourage muscle relaxation, an expanded dedicated infrared ‘ocean view' lounge with colour light therapy to energise and reinvigorate skin cells has also been introduced into the wellness area on board Scenic Eclipse II.
• On Deck 10, a new bar area with indoor and outdoor seating will be a highlight for guests to enjoy the stunning views, with their favourite drink in hand, whether they be cruising Antarctica, the Arctic, Australia or the Mediterranean.
