Watch: Incredible new footage of Scenic Eclipse arriving into Valletta, Malta

As we countdown to the inaugural voyage of Scenic Eclipse on 15 August, Scenic releases amazing new footage of the revolutionary new cruise ship, as well as its digital brochure for the 2020/21 and 2022 season.


Scenic today (13 August 2013) has released a video of Scenic Eclipse coming into the port of Valletta, Malta, giving guests an exciting preview of what’s to come when they board the ship on its inaugural voyage on 15 August. Her maiden voyage is a 13-day discovery sailing via Greenland and Eastern Canada before arriving in Quebec on 27 August 2019.

“Coming into port on any cruise ship is spectacular”, commented the ship’s captain James Griffiths.

“It is the first glimpse guests get of the city and country they are stopping in. There is a real sense of excitement and anticipation.

“Coming in on a ship like Scenic Eclipse will be even more exciting, as its size allows access to many ports that larger ships are not able to enter meaning our guests will, in many instances, have a truly unique arrival experience.”

The 228-passenger ship, described by Scenic as “the world’s first discovery yacht”, completed her sea trials in June and she was registered in Valletta, Malta, on 26 July. Last week (8th August 2019), Scenic released a dramatic video presents the final helicopter trials for Scenic Eclipse.

In addition, Scenic has released the new digital brochure for the new ship’s 2020/21 and 2022 season.

“This new brochure is the most comprehensive program we have released”, said Anna Wolfsteiner, chief sales and marketing officer of Scenic Group.

“It features six new itineraries comprising 47 departures across 38 countries, visiting 68 new ports as well as some of the most stunning UNESCO World Heritage-listed sites, and offering some truly unique experiences in destinations across the world”.
