Scenic Eclipse II was floated out at the 3. Maj Shipyard in Croatia
Scenic Eclipse II, the Scenic Group’s newest upcoming vessel, has entered the water for the first time. The 3. Maj Shipyard in Croatia, which has worked on the vessel since 2018, hosted a float-out ceremony to celebrate the occasion
The new vessel, which is the sister ship of Scenic Eclipse that launched in 2019, is designed to sail in all seas, including within Antarctica and the Arctic.
Scenic Eclipse II will have several enhancements following feedback from guests and crew who have sailed onboard sister ship Scenic Eclipse. New features will be included in the Senses Spa, and both the outdoor pool and panorama bar will be redesigned. The ship will also offer a custom-made submarine, Scenic Neptune II, that will dive to a total depth of 200 metres.
“This is a big and important moment for all of us at Scenic,” said Glen Moroney, chairman and founder of Scenic Group. “Scenic Eclipse II represents improved vision of our pioneering approach in the world of ultra-luxury cruising. We are grateful to be able to build the most technologically advanced discovery passenger ships in the world and to cooperate with shipyards with a long, proud tradition of shipbuilding.”
The construction of the vessel is being led by MKM Yachts, which is a division of the Scenic Group.
“We were able to find the suitable partners in the Republic of Croatia and the 3. Maj Shipyard, and I would like to thank them for their co-operation, as well as all other stakeholders who recognised the seriousness of our intentions and the importance of this project for Croatian shipbuilding on a global scale,” said Moroney.
Scenic Eclipse II will launch in April 2023, with its maiden voyage from Lisbon, Portugal, to Barcelona, Spain.
