The outdoor terrace delights guests with relaxation lounges and vitality spa. And Scenic Eclipse features the only dedicated Yoga and Pilates studio for a ship its size. Scenic Eclipse II continues this commitment, with the expansion of the steam room area to include aromatherapy, an integrated ice fountain and experience showers, and the introduction of a KLAFS custom salt therapy lounge with heated beds, enhanced with aromatherapy scents designed to benefit mind, body and soul.

Due to the success of the state-of-the-art KLAFS Infrared chairs on Scenic Eclipse, designed to relieve back pain and encourage muscle relaxation, an expanded dedicated infrared ‘ocean view’ lounge with color light therapy to energize and reinvigorate skin cells has also been introduced into the wellness area on board Scenic Eclipse II.
