Highlights of the season include expeditions to western Australia’s Islands of the Kimberley, the Indonesian Archipelago including the Spice Islands and Komodo Island, New Zealand and Fiji, as well as calls on Japan and South Korea. In December 2024, Scenic Eclipse II makes its inaugural voyage to Antarctica, exploring the continent’s east coast and Ross Sea while the Scenic Eclipse carries guests to the Antarctic peninsula and below the Antarctic Circle.

Canadian Guests booking any of the newly launched 2024-2025 sailings can receive free Business and Economy Class airfare and savings of up to CAD $5,000 per couple – cabin level and itinerary dependent. Prices below are per person, double occupancy.

Highlight of the 2024/2025 sailing season include:

Australia and New Zealand

On the 11-day Discover the Kimberley Coastline: An Ancient Wilderness, guests will visit the sparsely-populated region where the ocean meets the outback and experience once-in-a-lifetime natural phenomena like the Montgomery Reef, which appears to rise from the ocean at low tide and submerge as the tide rises, and the famed Horizontal Falls, a river current as powerful as a waterfall that stymies all but the most skilled river pilots. When guests join the onboard Discovery Team on walks in the bush, they’ll encounter seaside waterfalls and endemic plant and animal life and learn about Australia’s evolutionary history as they connect with the Land Down Under. Fares begin at CAD $16,145.

The 12-day Along the East Coast of Australia: Beaches & the Great Barrier Reef begins in Auckland, New Zealand, and ends in Cairns, calling on a half dozen islands and the world’s largest coral reef system – the Great Barrier Reef – along the way. Guests will find white-sand beaches lined with palm trees along with ample opportunities for kayaking, standup paddleboarding, snorkeling and playing with other onboard aquatic toys. Fares begin at CAD $14,695.

Pure New Zealand: North & South Islands takes guest on a 13-day exploration of the land and culture of New Zealand, from Māori culture to the incredible environment to renowned wines. Fares begin at CAD $19,404. For guest seeking even more New Zealand, the 18-day New Zealand In Depth will more than satisfy; fares available from CAD $22,045.

The Pacific Islands

Guests joining the 15-day Secrets of Indonesia: Spice Islands & Raja Ampat sailing will depart Darwin to explore the Spice Islands – home to nutmeg, mace, pepper and clove – and the reefs of Raja Ampat, with some of the most pristine and most biodiverse reefs on Earth. Fares available from CAD $19,404.

The 13-day Treasures of the Pacific: The Yasawas to New Zealand gives guests a taste of the South Pacific and New Zealand on one epic voyage. As guests explore the islands, cultures and flavors of Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia and New Zealand they’ll have ample opportunities to kayak, paddleboard and beachcomb and to explore below the waves with snorkeling or a trip on the ship’s submarine. Fares begin at CAD $15,995.

Wonders of Asia

On the 17-day Circumnavigation of Japan: Cultures & Traditions, the flavors, people and sights of Japan take center stage. The sophisticated urban rush of Tokyo, Kanazawa’s historic districts where samurai once lived and trained, and the countryside temples and parks offer one look at Japan, but the nation’s rich culture of festivals adds another. Cherry Blossom Festivals, the Takayama Spring Festival, Hiroshima’s Flower Festival, Kanda Festival (one of the biggest in Japan) and summer’s Sannō Festival are some of what guests may encounter in the Land of the Rising Sun. Fares from CAD $29,295.

Sailing from Indonesia to Taipei, the 17-day Natural Treasures of Indonesia, Borneo & Taiwan showcases the diversity of the region as guests travel between dense modern cities, uninhabited islands and astounding natural experiences. Guests might swim with stingless jellyfish on the Derawan Islands, visit the dragons on Komodo Island, or see 70 rescued orangutans at the Sepilok Rehabilitation Center. Fares begin at CAD $21,195.


For the first time, both Scenic Eclipse and Scenic Eclipse II will call on Antarctica, taking a limited number of guests – only 200 on each ship – to the White Continent.
The 24-day Antarctica’s Ross Sea: Majestic Ice & Wildlife offers guests nearly a month to explore and experience Antarctica aboard Scenic Eclipse II. Guests can watch for whales with the Discovery Team, fly over the frozen landscape – glaciers, ice fields and snow-clad mountains – in one of the two onboard state-of-the-art helicopters, dive beneath the icy waves on a submarine expedition, or do all three and never miss a minute of onboard indulgence or pampering. Fares available from CAD $47,290.

On the 13-day Antarctica In Depth sailing, guests depart Argentina aboard Scenic Eclipse and cross the Drake Passage to explore the magic that is the Antarctic Peninsula. Daily excursions – via kayak, paddleboard or zodiac – allow for exploration on land and sea, and trips on the ship’s helicopters and submarine let guests experience this place as few others have. Fares begin at CAD $20,495.

A voyage aboard Scenic Eclipse or Scenic Eclipse II offers unrivaled exploration and unparalleled access to the world’s most spectacular regions. With just 228 guests (200 in Polar regions), 114 all-verandah suites, an almost 1:1 staff-to-guest ratio, private butler service, and 10 distinct dining options, Scenic Eclipse Yachts ensure an extraordinary journey for every guest. Voyages are truly all-inclusive – transfers, fine dining experiences, premium beverages, gratuities, once-in-a-lifetime excursions, and more are included.

When guests aren’t exploring ashore, they can relax, recharge and indulge onboard. Gastronomes have their choice of cuisines and dining experiences including sushi (with fish flown fresh from Japan) and pan-Asian in Koko’s; fine French and champagne in Lumiere; casual breakfast and lunch in the Yacht Club; and an interactive, avant-garde meal at Chef’s Table. The 5,290 ft2 Senses Spa boasts saunas and cold-plunge pools, a KLFAS custom salt therapy lounge, dedicated male and female wellness areas and more.
