If your idea of the perfect vacation involves a luxurious cruise ship and the seven seas, you’re in for a real treat today. To celebrate its 30th anniversary, Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours have added a new glamorous ocean-faring yacht to their fleet, that might be considered the world’s first six-star ocean cruiser.

Called Scenic Eclipse, the wonderful vessel will be able to accommodate up to 228 passengers in complete luxury and style, with 114 all-veranda suites taking care of the accommodations. On board, there will be two helicopters, a custom-built submarine, a spacious spa, and indoor and outdoor Jacuzzis, that will impress guests even more.

The mega-yacht also includes six on board dining options, as well as a gym and separate yoga and Pilates studio. The ship will benefit from the highest polar ice class rating, meaning that it can take passengers safely to the Arctic and Antarctic.

Launching on 31 August 2018, Scenic Eclipse’s maiden voyage will take her from Istanbul to Venice, before sailing to The Americas, Antarctica, Europe once again and The Mediterranean, not to mention the Arctic and Norwegian Fjords.

This gorgeous cruiser aims to make this kind of adventures and trips accessible to more people, with a personalized service on board, and the ratio of staff to guests being almost 1:1, which is incredible. The ship will feature stabilizer fins that are 50 per cent larger than standard, for an increased stability and comfortable travel in any weather conditions.

On board you’ll also find a Discovery Team, made of experts in their fields, that will provide information about the sights and will keep everyone safe. The large theater, the spa and fitness center, or the six on board dining options featuring French, Pan Asian, Italian and steak restaurants, will take care of every guest’s needs.

Local tours will also be part of the all-inclusive voyage, and zodiacs, kayaks, scuba diving and snorkeling equipment will always be on hand. Considering that Scenic Eclipse hasn’t even left port yet, the brand already hopes to introduce a successor to this marvelous ship, in 2019.
