Scenic has named Dame Helen Mirren as the Godmother of Scenic Eclipse. The maiden voyage of the luxury vessel is scheduled for 15 August, 2019, departing Reykjavik, Iceland on a 13-day discovery sailing, ending in Quebec on 27 August.
“Scenic Eclipse is a unique ship that requires an equally unique person to act in this role,” said Glen Moroney, Founder and Chairman of Scenic. “We are delighted to welcome Helen Mirren as Scenic Eclipse Godmother – her style, beauty and spirit of adventure are true to those embodied in the design and ethos of Scenic Eclipse. Combined with the international acclaim as one of the world’s finest actresses, Helen Mirren makes the perfect Godmother to preside over the ship”
Helen Mirren added, “I am very honoured to have been chosen as the Godmother to such a beautiful vessel as Scenic Eclipse. She will have many adventures and a wonderful life as she transports her guests in immaculate style and great safety to beautiful places.”
Mirren will christen Scenic Eclipse in New York City on 10 September, 2019.
