Scenic Eclipse elevates the ultra-luxury cruising experience with new world-class ship enhancements

Scenic Eclipse (August 2019, Courtesy Scenic Cruises)Reinforcing its commitment to constant innovation and setting the benchmark in ultra-luxury cruising, Scenic has revealed details of its recent ship enhancements, including a new entertainment partnership on board 6-star, “Scenic Eclipse”.

Over the past 12 months, Scenic has refined a number of its culinary experiences and venues, to continue setting the standard in ultra-luxury dining at sea. The Yacht Club has been significantly reimagined to create a casual and refreshing dining environment.

The dining area has been extended and a new multi-purpose food island, has been installed to allow for a variety of relaxed dining experiences. House-made gelato will be served from a new gelato cooler, whilst new large sofas will replace the traditional tables and chairs, to encourage an interactive social ambience. Guests can also relax in the stunning new, wicker swinging egg chairs, carefully positioned to provide sweeping views over the ocean.

The new Night Market @ Kokos takes its inspiration from night markets and street food dishes from all around Asia, India and the Middle East. Sushi @ Koko’s has also been expanded to include window seating for more guests to enjoy the traditional, authentic Japanese cuisine, while gazing out at sea as they dine on world-class sushi.

Corporate Chef, Tom Götter said “The new Panorama Bar on Deck 10 will be the ‘place to be’ on lazy sea days, sail ins and outs from beautiful locations and for spotting wildlife. I love the combination of the bar, vitality pools, deck chairs and cabanas.”

Chef Tom’s culinary team of more than 38 chefs have also been developing exciting new menus and feature dishes for the new season, including new menu creations curated for the exclusive Chef’s Table dining experience. The cuisine features dishes inspired by the flavours of the world, designed to take guests on an exquisite gastronomic journey.

Taking on board enjoyment to a new level, an exciting new partnership has been announced with Scenic and one of the world’s leading cruise entertainment companies, Belinda King Creative Productions. “We have created a collection of unique immersive experiences, designed exclusively for Scenic Eclipse,” said owner Belinda King. “Each performance has been developed with bespoke musical arrangements and magnificent projection backdrops for the Scenic Eclipse theatre. Showcasing our team’s abilities and individual skill sets, we will be performing a diverse range of styles, from musical theatre and opera, to more contemporary pop and modern jazz. We’ll also be introducing guest speakers, multi-instrumentalists and dancers.”

An extensive new wellness menu and services will be available for guests at the exclusive 550m² Senses Spa, with the addition of a new manicure and pedicure area. The Senses Spa team has been hand-picked and trained by our new Head of Spa Operations, Raj Dhariwal.
