New details on a range of exciting enhancements have also been revealed, with Scenic confirming exterior painting of the vessel has been completed ahead of sea trials scheduled for late February.
The new enhancements take the benchmark in ultra-luxury to a new level for Scenic Eclipse II‘s worldwide discovery voyages:
Scenic Eclipse II’s Sky Deck features 270-degree views and a brand-new Sky Bar with indoor and outdoor seating. Along with six private cabanas, this will be the perfect space to enjoy the stunning views with a drink in hand.
A large, oval-shaped Vitality Pool measuring 8.9m by 3.5m has been custom-designed for the Sky Deck. The pool’s swim jets will enable guests to swim ‘laps,’ while massage jets allow for ultimate relaxation, with the water temperature set specifically to the destination. Glass panels surrounding the pool and nearby stairs have been raised higher to block any wind and maximise guest comfort.
The 550 sqm Senses Spa has been enhanced with a new KLAFS custom salt therapy lounge with heated beds and aromatherapy scents, designed to relieve back pain and encourage muscle relaxation. While an expanded dedicated infrared ‘ocean view’ lounge with colour light therapy which reinvigorates skin cells has also been introduced into the wellness area.
The newly designed Chef’s Garden @ Epicure includes a dedicated space for up to 14 guests with dining, with a presentation table for culinary masterclasses and tasting events with world-class chefs and sommeliers. An Urban Cultivator, a hydroponic herb garden, will be a key feature of this venue, highlighting the fresh ingredients used throughout the Discovery Yacht’s dining experiences.
Scenic Eclipse II has been built to the highest standards and continues to elevate the benchmark in world-class design and state-of-the-art technology, as highlighted in the latest video from James Griffiths, Vice President of Marine Operations, Scenic Group.
With strong demand for Scenic Eclipse II‘s inaugural season, a limited selection of voyages and suites are available with savings of up to 20% and up to $2,000* pp towards airfares.
