With Eclipse II on the way in 2020, Scenic are still seeking to push the boundaries and provide their guests with unique experiences. Their latest innovation will provide passengers with a whole new perspective on their destination.

Guests on board Scenic Eclipse can already get closer to nature and interact with the landscape in a more tangible way thanks to Scenic Eclipse’s tandem kayaks and fleet of Zodiacs.

Another piece of state-of-the-art technology, Scenic Neptune is a U-Boat Worx Cruise Submarine 7, which is capable of diving to a depth of up to 300 metres. With space for six guests in addition to the submarine pilot, Neptune will allow passengers to explore under the ocean’s surface in absolute comfort and safety.
