Scenic has released full details of its 2022/2023 Scenic Eclipse Europe and the Mediterranean voyages and land journeys collection.
The new collection features five new voyages to Andalucía, the Greek Islands and Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula, a selection of new Mediterranean land journeys, and several other highlights including changes on the superyacht itself.
The ultra-luxury Discovery Yacht continues to set the benchmark in ultra-luxury cruising as it navigates both polar and tropical regions. The new 2022/23 collection also coincides with the unveiling of new onboard enhancements to allow guests to enjoy the warm weather cruises, in ultimate luxury while enjoying a once-in-a-lifetime discovery experience.
Scenic Eclipse has been reimagined for long summer days in the Mediterranean with new Cabanas, deck chairs, two Vitality Pools and the new Panorama Bar and redesigned Yacht Club to enable guests to soak up the views and rejuvenate after a day of exploring.
Not be left out, Scenic Eclipse’s discovery program has new options for warmer climates including Tiwal Sail Boats and new helicopter experiences that offer shore landings and golf excursions.
The new Europe and the Mediterranean voyages include the 11-day Authentic Andalucía voyage from Valletta to Lisbon, departing June 8, 2022, which will explore from the Maltese archipelago to the Spanish coast and Lisbon, taking in Sardinia and Sicily en route.
Guests will be able to kayak through Gozo’s crystal waters along towering cliffs, explore Menorca’s south coast by e-bike, and relax on Formentera’s magnificent, unspoiled beaches. Scenic Eclipse will be at home in Puerto Banús – known for its luxurious cars, exclusive shops and impressive yachts – where guests will witness the authentic flamenco ballet production of Carmen in a thrilling exclusive performance.
Another new itinerary is the nine-day Iconic Treasures of Italy and Greece voyage from Rome to Athens, departing May 15, 2022. This itinerary takes in forgotten islands and white-washed sands, with visits to the caves and spectacular cliffs of Sorrento, hiking among the volcanic Aeolian archipelago, and a chance to sit back and relax with a glass of local wine while listening to the artistic synthesis of two incredible violinists set to the background of an iconic Santorini sunset.
Also visiting Sorrento is the 11-day Sorrentine Peninsula and Adriatic voyage departing May 1, 2023. A journey from Rome to Venice, the itinerary visits some of Italy’s hotspots including the luxurious isle of Capri, Sorrento’s Bay of Leranto, the unique volcanic island of Lipari, and the country’s easternmost town, Otranto. Guests will be awed by the stunning Bay of Kotor before sailing on to Dubrovnik in Croatia, where an enthralling private concert set in a magnificent Baroque Church awaits.
Delving into the central Mediterranean is the nine-day Mediterranean Odyssey: Greece to Malta, which departs Athens for Valletta on May 31, 2022 and which takes in timeless islands with an aura of history and the spectacular beauty which captures the heart in less visited ports and villages.
Alternatively, the nine-day escorted Taste of Italy land journey from Rome to Venice is the perfect complement to a Scenic Eclipse voyage and shows off Italy’s regional delicacies with visits to Rome, Tuscany, Florence, Rapallo and Venice. Guests will enjoy a private dinner with wine pairing near the Pantheon, hosted by a culinary connoisseur, and a visit to a Tuscan farmhouse to learn about local wine and oil production techniques.
