Helicopter tour over icebergs was truly breathtaking.
Champagne and caviar snack? Why yes please!
Sleek. This isn't a cruise. It is a discovery yacht.
Luxury awaits on board!
Penguins galore thanks to some well planned excursions.

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 Scenic Eclipse, a discovery yacht carrying 142 passengers from Usuhuia, Argentina to Antarctica and then on to South Georgia over 18 days in mid-January.

Cabin Review

Very well appointed with all of the amenities of a five-star hotel. Of particular note was the awesome Dyson hair dryer.
