"No port talks ( usual for scenic river boats) giving and over view of the following days activities, only one lecture/info session in the impressive theatre, no name badges with 200 people hard to remember every one ( a usual scenic thing) and off boat enrich experience with a massive food offering...The sub was off boat having maintenance ,the kayaks werent put in the water (no qualified supervisor?..."Read More

After initial difficulties over travel arrangements, not Scenic's fault but not well handled, we arrived on board with some anxieties. Delighted to say all concerns were dispelled by a fantastic experience from beginning to end. Staff at every level, (cabin, restaurants, bars, excursion team) went above and beyond to meet guests' desires including a special menu arranged in Koko restaurant after a ...

We have been on the Athens to Malta and Malta to Lisbon cruise from 31st of May to 18th of June 2022 (booked in 2016 for 2017!!!) Here just a quick report about the Scenic Eclipse. We are not so happy with the Scenic Eclipse. I had a bad accident when I had to evade another person in the corridor and bumped into a handrail that was sticking out. The Scenic Eclipse is a great ship but has ...

Very disappointing not a luxury cruise

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We were on the 30th May sailing and were very disappointed with our cruise to the Greek Islands from Athens ending in Malta. The Company's booking admin is appalling, we had our agent chase tickets etc and they eventually arrived 3 days before departure, some people on the cruise never received anything. so little outside space, 8 sun loungers, 8 deckchairs, 8 cabanas between 200+ guests, ...

An Amazing Trip to Antarctica on an Even More Amazing Ship!

Review for Scenic Eclipse to South America

A luxury cruise to Antarctica is expensive, so I thoroughly researched ships and pricing. Since we were still in the times of COVID, I was very lucky to find some amazing pricing on the relatively new and specially hulled Scenic Eclipse that left about 4 months out. The ship looked amazing, and more importantly offered all passengers zodiac excursions off the ship whenever weather and location ...

I need to preface this review by saying I am not an experienced "cruiser". In fact, this was my first cruise. But if that epic experience was anything to go by, then it most definitely will not be my last! From the moment you step aboard the Scenic Eclipse, you are transported to another place. An ultra-luxurious, thoughtfully designed expedition yacht, that is clever in both its ability to ...

The most extraordinary holiday I've had

Review for Scenic Eclipse to South America

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

After 2 years of Covid lockdowns and repeated attempts to take a vacation, we decided that we wanted to do something quite extraordinary. We did our research (we had plenty of time in lockdown!), and agreed that a combination of ultra luxury, juxtaposed against extreme locations, was our brief. Our path led us to the Scenic Eclipse, a 6 star ultra sleek, superyacht styled, boutique cruise ...

Scenic Eclipse Discovery Yacht (Antarctica and South Georgia) This is a long review because I wanted to describe why I wholeheartedly recommend the Scenic Eclipse Discovery Yacht to anyone wanting to explore Antarctica in luxury and style. I’ve divided the post into four sections: service, food, ship and the excursions. Service: I never knew what six-star service was until I came onboard the ...

Nowhere near 6 star

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

I chose this cruise 2 years ago as I thought if I was going to the Antarctic I would do it in style and comfort. I chose what was supposed to be the second season so issues could be ironed out but because of delays it became the first season. Firstly we only became aware of our early transfer from Buenos Airies to Ushuaia less than 2 weeks prior to departure no time to arrange alternate ...

Early days but work to do on the hotel side

My agent asked me for feedback on Scenic Eclipse. This is what I wrote. Our thoughts on Scenic Eclipse. Overall it’s a four star hotel in a six star ship where Silversea is a six star hotel in a four star ship! The huge 6 metre stabilisers and a long sharp bow make for the best ride by far we’ve experienced. We were in a Force 11 gale and Force 12 for an hour or so leaving South Georgia and ...
