Scenic Eclipse II officially arrived in Australia.In a spectacular display of luxury and innovation, the Scenic Eclipse II entered Sydney Harbour, setting a new benchmark in ultra-luxury cruising. This momentous arrival heralds the beginning of its inaugural season, showcasing the Australian-founded Scenic Group’s commitment to redefining ocean travel.

The scene at Circular Quay was jubilation and anticipation as the Scenic Eclipse II, the latest jewel in the Scenic Group’s crown, was greeted by the executive team and eager guests. This event not only celebrates the launch of a series of opulent voyages across Oceania from 2024 to 2026 but also marks a significant return to the company’s roots in Newcastle, founded 38 years ago.

Glen Moroney, Chairman and Founder of Scenic Group, expressed his enthusiasm for this landmark venture. “As pioneers of ultra-luxury yacht cruising from Australia, we continue to lead with innovation and excellence. The Scenic Eclipse II is not merely a ship; it is a promise of life-changing experiences and an emblem of our dedication to our guests and partners globally,” Moroney stated.

The Scenic Eclipse II’s journey is set to captivate with various routes highlighting Australia’s coastal splendour—from the iconic Great Barrier Reef and remote Kimberley region to the pristine shores of Western Australia. Additionally, the vessel will explore exotic South Pacific locales and East Antarctica’s stark beauty.

Accommodating only 228 guests, this 6-star marvel offers 114 sumptuous suites and boasts 10 all-inclusive dining venues, two helicopters, and the Scenic Neptune II submersible. This cutting-edge submersible offers guests unparalleled underwater adventures, diving up to 200 meters below the surface and offering a 270-degree panoramic view of the ocean’s depths.

Anthony Laver, Scenic Group’s GM of Sales and Marketing for the Asia-Pacific, highlighted the significance of the yacht’s features. “The introduction of the Scenic Eclipse II represents a seismic shift in the luxury cruising sector. With its unmatched facilities and pioneering spirit, it sets a new standard for adventure and luxury combined,” Laver remarked.
