After over a 1 year delay in construction we finally had the opportunity to visit the Eclipse.
First off from the outside this ship is gorgeous. She does look like some of the newer true Mega Yachts, and having had the opportunity to be on a few of those yachts, she does have some of the interior feel of a Mega Yacht. The interior color scheme is mostly black and grays which gives some areas a very dark feeling. The décor is very contemporary with the art and furniture to match.
Scenic River Cruises and Scenic Tours may not be household brands in the USA but they are in Australia, Canada and the UK. Recently entering the US market with their river ship division, Scenic brings another luxury product to the growing fleet of river ships. Interestingly the owner of Scenic is pausing his river ship fleet at 16 and now concentrating on ocean exploration ships with his first over the top luxury ship currently under construction.
Scenic started concentrating on the Australian tour market and built their first river ship in 2008, she was dubbed a space ship because of all the space she offers compared to other ships.
