The Scenic Eclipse is the first of the new generation of expedition new builds that have been announced during the last few years, and having been at the press launch a while ago I was very keen to see if she looked as good in real life as in the artist impressions.Read more about Scenic Eclipse - A first look at this new luxury expedition yacht
Scott is one of the most well-travelled people we know, having visited more than 70 countries and counting. He has worked in the cruise industry since he was 19 years old, beginning as a cruise ship photographer and duty free shop manager, and knows more than most how enjoyable cruising can be. “A luxury or adventure cruise is a wonderful way to see several destinations in one unforgettable holiday, with the added advantage of only having to unpack once. Best of all it offers excellent value for money, with almost everything usually included in the list price: meals, accommodation and entertainment on board, and in some instances all shore excursions and beverages too, even champagne.” Burma is perhaps Scott’s favourite destination, which he visited with Crystal Cruises and loved for the warmth and hospitality of its people. As excursions go, his most treasured memory is of dogsledding in Arctic Norway with Hurtigruten, an experience that was capped by a campfire dinner beneath a dazzling display of the Northern Lights.
