A Bird’s Eye View From Whopper Chopper!

The world’s first discovery yacht, the Scenic Eclipse, is promising adventurous guests not only the holiday of a lifetime, but two on board helicopters and a six seater submarine from which to enjoy the rugged scenery and elusive wildlife of the Arctic.

The region is situated in that part of the world that still figures high on numerous ‘must-visit’ lists. However, when you are able to enjoy the ‘top of the world’ in ultimate luxury on board the Scenic Eclipse, it makes plummeting temperatures just a little more palatable!

And the luxury also includes two Airbus H130 helicopters allowing unrivalled birds-eye views, as well as a 6-seater submarine for ultimate sightseeing and uninterrupted marine life views.

Scenic is offering a complimentary £500 per person suite upgrade credit on all bookings made before 31 July 2020 including its Arctic in Depth, Across the Arctic Circle, Arctic Islands and High Arctic Explorer itineraries for 2021.

With just 228 passengers (200 in polar regions) allowing access to smaller ports and remote landing sites, Scenic Eclipse boasts a Polar 6 Ice Class – the highest of any passenger ship – ensuring Scenic Eclipse can navigate Polar regions with uncompromising safety.

Scenic Eclipse was voted as the best luxury ship in the world in 2019 following a successful first season sailing six-star luxury cruises through destinations including the Arctic, Antarctica, Central and South America, and the Caribbean. Featuring up to 10 dining options, indoor and outdoor plunge pools, the 550 m² Senses Spa with latest technology-equipped gym and a 1:1 guest-to-staff ratio and butler service to all guests, guests can enjoy the ultimate in luxury cruising.
