Scenic EclipseSince entering the European river-cruising market in 2008, Scenic (an Australian-based company) has built a fleet of "Space Ships" that offer luxury cruises on Europe's most popular waterways. Scenic will soon expand into saltwater cruising with Scenic Eclipse, a newly-built "discovery yacht" that entered service in 2018.

The 228-passenger, Polar Class 6-rated vessel cruises in the Arctic, the Antarctic, Europe and the Mediterranean, and other locations. The ship features a private verandah (to use Scenic's Australian spelling) for every suite, two seven-seat helicopters, a seven-seat submarine, kayaks, snorkeling and scuba equipment, and a remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV).

Despite the ship's compact size (16,500 GRT, with 114 suites), it offers six dining venues, a spa, a gym, a library, and a 240-seat theatre.
