LATTE was recently a guest aboard Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours’ Discovery Yacht, Scenic Eclipse, where we sailed the Caribbean Sea visiting ports in Jamaica, Guatemala, Honduras, Belize and Mexico.
We took the opportunity to speak with a number of crew and personnel while on board to learn more about their cruise industry background, their reason for joining Scenic Eclipse in its inaugural season, and some of their favourite ports and parts of the World’s First Discovery Yacht.
What is your name and title?
Kimolee Irving, Guest Services Associate.
How long have you been with Scenic?
I joined Scenic in early August 2019.
Can you tell us about your work background and cruise history?
I have been working on cruise ships since 2015. I have worked on larger cruise lines and have specialised in a few roles such as tours and future cruises.
What was the appeal of joining Scenic Eclipse?
I was intrigued to join a yacht that was the first of its kind and to be part of delivering a six-star experience. I mean, who has their own helipad and submarine to make it an extremely luxurious experience like no other?!
What has been your favourite port visited so far aboard Scenic Eclipse?
So far, one of my favourite ports has to be Qaqortoq. It was a very picturesque place with a beautiful quaint town in southern Greenland.
Next port you’re most looking forward to visiting?
The next port I am looking forward to visit has to be Antarctica. I’ve never been and am very excited.
Your favourite part of the ship?
We are travelling to unique destinations where no other ships have been and to be honest nothing beats working in a a luxurious environment with the best crew onboard every day for a few months. I am so pleased I got a chance to work on it!
