A time-lapse video detailing the build of Scenic Cruises second discovery yacht has been released by the company.
Scenic Eclipse II is due to enter service in April 2023 from Lisbon with its inaugural season taking in the Mediterranean, Scotland, the Americas, Caribbean and both Polar regions.
The ship will also visit Australia, Polynesia and Indonesia in 2024.
The vessel – a near-identical sister ship to Scenic Eclipse – is due to float out at its shipyard in Rijeka, Croatia later this month.
The vessel is being built by shipbuilder MKM Yachts owned by parent company Scenic Group.
Tweaks have been made on the original Scenic Eclipse design based on feedback from passengers and crew working on board.
Enhancements to the spa, a larger pool and outdoor area on deck 10 are among the changes.
Fares start at £5,785 per person for a transatlantic crossing from Lisbon to New England on September 30, 2023.
UK trade sales director Andrea Stafford said: “The addition of Scenic Eclipse II to the fleet continues our mission to bring once-in-a-lifetime exploration to guests.
“Our discovery yachts are unique in that they can handle extreme and diverse conditions, meaning they can go from the icy waters of the Arctic and Antarctic to the warmth of the Caribbean, and explore ports and coves that larger vessels just cannot access.
“We are intent on innovating and raising the game in the ultra-luxury cruise sector and are doing this by refining the on-board experience and delivering exciting new destinations. There is no limit to our ambition, which is what our discerning guests expect.”
