Scheduled to be delivered in August 2018, the expedition vessel is under construction at the Uljanik Shipyard in Croatia. It is the first ocean vessel for Scenic which operates 22 river cruise ships globally.

Technical management for the vessel will be provided by V.Ships Leisure in Monaco and on board will be 50 deck and engine crew along with 106 hotel crew.

In addition, V.Ships Leisure will provide itinerary planning and port operation with hotel operation services to be provided by V.Group’s Oceanic Catering business.

“We are delighted to be able to bring our … experience with start-ups, expedition vessels and the ultra-luxury market to support Scenic in their newest venture,” Per Bjornsen, V.Ships Leisure Director, said.

Designed for only 228 guests, only 200 in the Arctic and Antarctica, Scenic Eclipse is expected to embark on its maiden voyage throughout the fourth quarter of 2018.
