Scenic Group has announced updates and expansions across its fleet, starting with news of a new luxury yacht, Emerald Kaia.

Merging increased capacity with an intimate ambiance, the new yacht will accommodate 128 guests and introduce innovations, a press release said Tuesday (April 9).

The Sky Deck, for one, has been expanded, now incorporating a new internal Sky Lounge, and offering guests a luxurious open-air experience alongside panoramic views.

All cabins and suites boast a 10 per cent larger floorplan, offering guests extra comfort through more spacious and contemporary accommodations.

With enhanced dining venues, reimagined gym, spa, and wellness features, Emerald Kaia will sail the Mediterranean, Adriatic, and Aegean Seas to the Seychelles.

"Emerald Kaia, with its significant design and amenity enhancements, marks a pivotal expansion for our fleet. It builds on the strengths of Emerald Sakara and Emerald Azzurra, allowing us to offer unmatched superyacht experiences along the world's most captivating coastlines," said Glen Moroney, chairman and founder of Scenic Group, in a statement.

Guests will discover “surprises” throughout the yacht's spacious architecture, Observation Sun Deck on the bow, Sky Deck cabanas, Sky Bar, and multiple dining experiences.

The marina has been enhanced with an interior lounge, additional water sports offerings and access to swim to the marina from an open-air gym, blends experiences of luxury and adventure.

The Elements Spa caters to those who value wellness as part of their luxurious escape and reflects a broader focus for the brand on nurturing the mind, body, and spirit.

Emerald Kaia will set sail in April 2026 and the books open Wednesday (April 10).

Fleet-wide design update

Scenic Group also unveiled a design update to 18 Scenic and Emerald Cruises luxury river cruise ships across Central Europe and France.

The refresh of the ships' main deck introduces new layouts, modern furniture, and innovative day-to-night features to its lounge and specialty dining spaces, the company says.

Scenic Eclipse and its sister ship Scenic Eclipse II are also set to receive significant enhancements as well, the company says.

Ahead of its Mediterranean season Scenic Eclipse will undergo a dry dock update in April bringing many of the innovations that debuted on Scenic Eclipse II, including its Senses Spa, as well as updates to outdoor dining venues for warm weather enjoyment and the Discovery Team space to Scenic Eclipse.

Additionally, Scenic Eclipse II will introduce the custom-designed Scenic Neptune II submersible and four state-of-the-art SEABOBs.

These new sea toys and discovery vessel allow for unique exploration of the ocean's depths and world-renowned coral reefs with its first season in the South Pacific, Australia and East Antarctica having recently commenced.
