Scenic is kicking off the 2018 Wave Season with multiple offers. Guests wanting to be one of the first to experience the world’s first Discovery Yacht, Scenic Eclipse, enjoy early-bird fares – up to 10% off regular fares – on 13 different itineraries between September 2018 and July 2019. Including the Scenic Eclipse “Panama & Columbia Discovery” itinerary, just named by Conde Nast Traveler as one of the world’s best cruises for 2018. They also receive deposit protection at no charge, an early payment discount of up to $1,000 per couple, and free airport transfers to and from their homes on itineraries longer than 10 days. Free roundtrip air is being offered on the 15-day “South America to Canary Islands” transatlantic sailing in 2019. Scenic Eclipse offers are on new bookings made by February 28, 2018 and space available.
Those wishing to explore Europe’s rivers in 2018 on one of Scenic’s Space-Ships can “Choose Your Savings” – a new program that offers a choice of either free roundtrip airfare, up to $1,500 per person fare savings, or a two-category balcony suite upgrade on any of many European river itineraries. Bookings on “Choose Your Savings” must be made by Feb. 15, 2018.
The Scenic Eclipse, launching August 31, 2018, is a “6-star” mega yacht, carrying just 228 guests, (200 in the polar regions of Arctic and Antarctica). The itineraries in the Wave Season offer cover much of the world. From a 21-day Antarctica, South Georgia & Falkland Islands adventure to a 14-day Transatlantic crossing to 11-day discover your roots in the British Isles to a five-day Argentina & Brazil exploration.
The ship has 10 dining options, a 5,900ft² Spa Sanctuary, staterooms that range in size from 345ft² Verandah Suites to a 2,660ft² two-bedroom Penthouse Suite, eight spacious bars and lounges offering unlimited complimentary beverages, butler service, and numerous pools. A six-passenger helicopter and six-passenger submarine take guests far beyond the environs of a normal cruise.
Guests interested in seeing Europe from its many rivers get to choose both their savings offer and their itinerary: eight-day Rhine Highlights or Gems of Danube itineraries; 15-day Jewels of Europe, sailing on the Rhine, Main and Danube; 11-day Unforgettable Douro (Portugal); 11-day Normandy & Gems of the Seine, sailing from Paris to Honfleur; and 14-day Spectacular South of France Paris to Nice exploration.
