Great ship and crew; horrible company.
"The only way to get back to peak season was to book Antarctica Cruise only, but South Georgia was a priority for me, so I was stuck, and booked for the shoulder season departure (Scenic knew exactly what they were doing – many of the passengers on this sailing were rebookings and well, so Scenic got to charge more for shoulder season departure with captive customers).August 2020 – Dec 4 Sailing for Scenic Eclipse for Sailing Falklands, South Georgia, Antarctica cancelled due to COVID...."Read More

Chosen because of previous positive experience with Scenic (Mekong). Voyage selected as soon as the boat launched and programme announced but blighted by CV so although postponed a couple of years the trip reached and exceeded expectation. The cruise itself was beyond reproach, superb organisation, elegant soothing decor, amazing lounge with a bar offering, it was claimed, 138 whiskies, all ...

Bucket list cruise. Positives: amazing cruise itinery; ship staff in general very attentive. Naturalists were top notch and gave interesting lectures. Open bridge was a nice addition. Did not go to evening shows so cannot comment. Negatives: lazy butler; nice cabin but not spectacular; weak/no Wi-Fi in cabin (went to Azure cafe to connect to the internet); no place to hang wet clothes; no ...

Great trip. Captain and hotel manager fantastic. Crew great - Damir, gregg, Christian, Deane stop out. Enrichment lectures great - I lined the short and punchy nature. Did well to find weather holes and calm slots. Entertainment poor - especially the pianist. Little atmosphere created in the lounge. You are not able to book a future cruise discount if you don’t book a specific ...

Great itinerary to the South Atlantic and Antarctic. Looked forward to the great food, helicopter ride and submarine. The ship is in fact beautiful and very comfortable. Unfortunately, I received an email as I was packing for the trip informing us that the sub was broken and not available. We were selected for a helicopter ride at the same time as our first kayak opportunity- we asking to move ...

19 years ago we visited Antarctica and my husband proposed to me at Brown Bluff, surrounded by penguins. We hesitated to return because we had had such a wonderful experience and we did not want those amazing memories spoilt. But we need not have worried. Scenic gave us the most amazing trip and more. The wildlife, especially in South Georgia, which we had not visited before, was breathtaking ...

My review is great for the ship and crew (5*) but very poor for Scenic as a company (1* - would not book with them again). First the good – the ship is fantastic. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The bedding was the most comfortable of any ship we have been on. The crew is extremely well trained and works very hard. This ship has a decent number of dining options for a ship this ...

- As most reviewers comment, the administrative procedures pre-cruise are truly awful and you end up wondering what you’ve got yourself in for. HOWEVER, once you’re on the ship, it is as efficient and wonderful as the back office was chaotic and confusing. We’re actually quite incredulous that the same company can do one part so badly and one part so well… - Also, as most reviewers comment, ...

We chose to cruise on Scenic Eclipse for the adventure it promised. However, we received much more than we expected as the yacht provided pure luxury in the remote places we visited. The owners, management and staff are to be congratulated on achieving the ultimate in global luxury yacht cruising. The best service we have ever experienced , coupled with the most friendly and efficient crew, ...

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 went on the cruise before the one in the drop down box so it was Norwegian fjords and then a week in Svalbad. Norwegian fjords were lovely and we had a great helicopter flight over Geiranger fjord. The submarine was an experience but nothing to see in pretty murky fjord water - waste of money really. Off ship excursions hit and miss - few good others absolutely rubbish. The arctic cruising ...
