There have been very few opportunities for the cruise industry to celebrate recently, but here’s one. This weekend the Scenic Eclipse is marking one year since she made her maiden voyage and helped to change the face of luxury expedition cruising.
Over the past year, the Scenic Eclipse has travelled to more than twenty countries across three oceans. She’s entertained guests with more than 200 dives with her on-board submarine, performed almost 300 helicopter flight, taken 270 guests diving in the freezing waters of the Arctic and Antarctica and thrilled guests with 500 Discovery explorations.
That’s a huge achievement when you consider she is yet to celebrate her official first birthday. So how has she decided to celebrate this milestone? By offering her guests a £500 per person suite upgrade on selected Scenic Eclipse Arctic itineraries plus additional dedicated offers for loyalty guests.
The suite upgrade credit is available on new bookings on Scenic Eclipse’s Arctic in Depth, Across the Arctic Circle, Arctic Islands and High Arctic Explorer itineraries for 2021.
Sailing a round-trip from Svalbard’s Longyearbyen, the itinerary gives guests an immersive up-close look at the rugged glaciers and frozen tundras of the Svalbard Archipelago.
Christened in New York by Godmother Dame Helen Mirren in September 2019, Scenic Eclipse marries luxury and discovery with the ultimate in safety and sustainability. Guests have the opportunity to explore above and beyond what was previously imaginable, with plans underway to make Scenic Eclipse’s second season even bigger and better than ever.
Martin Solly, Brand Manager UK, Scenic Eclipse added: “We have had such an incredible first season with Scenic Eclipse, with our discovery explorations, helicopter journeys and submarine dives really setting the benchmark in ultra-luxury travel and, of course, proving extremely popular with our guests.
“This year also marks an exciting moment for Scenic Eclipse as we announced the start of construction on her sister ship, Scenic Eclipse II. We can’t wait to welcome guests back on board as we continue to develop our luxury ocean products, with plans progressing to make Scenic Eclipse’s second season even more exclusive for our guests.”
