The launch of the Scenic Eclipse has been delayed

The management of Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours today announced that the launch of Scenic Eclipse, the World’s First Discovery Yacht, has been delayed until late January 2019.

According to Scenic founder and chairman, Glen Moroney, construction issues within the shipyard have caused the delay.

“Despite the best efforts of our Scenic Eclipse Build Supervision Team to make up construction time, we are not prepared to compromise the quality of the vessel and potentially impact guest experiences to meet the original late August launch date,” said Moroney. “Scenic will provide guests with a full refund for the cost of their Scenic Eclipse cruise and consideration of any other reasonable associated costs incurred with travel plans.”

Committed to helping agents

Scenic will contact all travel agents with clients affected by the delay as a matter of priority and will be managed in order of impacted sailing date.

“We recognize the inconvenience this will cause agents and their clients and in addition to the full refund, the Scenic team are committed to working closely with agents and their clients to reschedule their trip to a suitable time for travel within the next two years," said Moroney. "Scenic will also provide all guests who rebook a Scenic Eclipse voyage during this time a future cruise credit to the value of 25% of the cost of their rebooked cruise, and agent commission will be protected on all affected bookings."
