Each year, we introduce exciting journeys to immerse you in this vibrant destination. Here are some of the new experiences awaiting you: 1. Introducing Vang Vieng and Vientiane The culturally rich and picturesque country of Laos is worthy of lingering a little longer, and guests on the Grand Indochina & Luxury Mekong and Journey Along the Mekong will be able to do just that by adding two nights. Travelling via the new high-speed rail link that connects to China, you will spend one night in Vang Vieng, a small town surrounded by mountainous jungle and caves and home to the striking Blue Lagoon and Chang Caves. The second night is in the country’s capital, Vientiane, where you will visit Patuxay war monument and Pha That Luang, a gold-covered stupa and the national symbol of Laos. 2. Additional experiences in Hanoi’s Old Quarter The Old Quarter is the traditional heart of Vietnam’s capital: an ancient network of narrow laneways, each historically dedicated to a different trade or craft. If your itinerary stops in the city of Hanoi, you can now learn about the history of this fascinating area on a 30-minute Old Quarter tour in a ‘green’ electric car. Get up-close to the cyclo drivers and the pulse of this ancient city. 3. Tour of Cao Dai Temple Established in 1926, the unique Cao Dai religion fuses together the ideas and beliefs of Buddhism, Christianity, Taoism and Confucianism. Its awe-inspiring temples in the Mekong Delta really are to be seen to be believed: a clash of bright colours, gaudy patterns and eclectic motifs juxtaposed against the white robes of its worshippers. During your Mekong River Cruise, you will get to witness it all at the Cao Dai Temple in Tan Chau, which has just been reopened to the public after renovations. 4. High tea at Raffles Phnom Penh Elevate your afternoon at the Raffles Hotel Le Royal, whose high tea has been an institution since the hotel opened in 1929.

You’ll also feast on a Khmer-style lunch at Romdeng Restaurant, which is run by Friends, a social enterprise that supports local street children. 6. Bicycle tour through Hoi An countryside This two-wheeled Scenic Freechoice excursion journeys through Hoi An’s rural landscape to see first-hand how locals live off the land. Pedal along quiet laneways, past family farms, rice paddies and grazing water buffalo before swapping your bike for a round bamboo boat to try your hand at traditional fishing with a net. This one-of-a-kind immersive tour will end with a scenic cruise back to Hoi An with lunch on board. 7. Lantern-making class in Hoi An Learn the 400-year-old craft of lantern-making during a Scenic Freechoice workshop hosted by Reaching Out, an NGO that helps disabled people gain meaningful employment and lead independent and fulfilling lives. Hoi An is famous for the lanterns that line the ancient streets and riverside – in the evening the town is simply magical. Image credit: Kathleen D, Scenic Guest, USA 8. New dining in Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City These new Scenic Freechoice dining options serve up a memorable feast for the soul as well as tastebuds. In Hoi An, guests can embark on a street food walking tour to sample tasty traditional fare such as banh mi (baguette) and cau lau (noodle bowl), as well as dining at Quang’s Kitchen, run by a chef from the local MasterChef series, and The Field Hoi An Restaurant and Bar, which is nestled in a verdant green landscape. In Ho Chi Minh, you can dine among lanterns in the intimate Secret Garden Restaurant and enjoy a home-cooked-style meal with panoramic city views at SHRI Restaurant Bar and Lounge. 9. Learn about Cows for Cambodia Cows are very expensive, so many families can’t afford one, however, through ‘Cows for Cambodia’ the family can look after the pregnant cow and can keep the calf once it is born, working like a ‘cow bank’. Featured as Scenic Freechoice activity, this experience will give guests a chance to learn about the program and be immersed in the local community.

24 Hours in the Mediterranean – Scenic and Emerald WaterwaysWhat can you expect in a day in the Mediterranean on a Scenic Eclipse ...Read more24 Hours in the Mediterranean – Scenic and Emerald Waterways - News & announcementsWhat can you expect in a day in the Mediterranean on a Scenic Eclipse ultra-luxury voyage? From walking the historical old towns of Croatia to soaking up the sun in southern France, and wine tasting on Italy’s Amalfi coast to watching a flamenco performance in Spain you will be immersed in the local culture. With Scenic, you can experience all of this - and more - in unrivalled 6-star ultra-luxury. Wake Up in Six-Star Luxury Whether you’re an early bird or enjoy a lay in, you’ll wake up in your spacious 6-star suite. With only 228 guests and an almost 1:1 staff-to-guest ratio, the feeling of exclusivity starts the moment you wake up. Soak in the view from your private verandah overlooking the brilliant deep blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Your butler will bring you your coffee — remembering the exact way you like it — along with a continental breakfast to start the day if you choose in your suite. Or enjoy a full breakfast at Elements. Your Choice of Morning Activity Scenic Freechoice excursions give you the flexibility and freedom to choose what you see and do each day, and at which pace you do them. There’s a choice of up to six activities included each day, and they’re rated Active, Moderate and Relaxed. For example, when docked in glittering Saint-Tropez on the French Riviera, choose from a walking tour of the cobble-stoned coastal town, a drive to Port Grimaud — dubbed “the Venice of Provence” — or a local wine tasting at a family-run winery. On a Scenic Discovery excursion, an expert guide will take you on a coastal hike to nearby Cap Camarat for sweeping views of the rocky granite coastline and azure waters. At just 168 metres long, Scenic Eclipse can access small ports like those in Saint-Tropez, which larger vessels simply can’t get to. This means you’re taken right into the heart of must-see European destinations. Enjoy an Afternoon Unwinding on your Discovery Yacht Back on your Discovery Yacht, choose from a casual lunch or fine dining experience before exploring the on board facilities. Soak in the sun from the Sun Terrace on the top deck, unwind in the spacious Senses Spa, or take a dip in the temperature-controlled outdoor Vitality Pools. Fitness enthusiasts can work up a sweat in the fully equipped gym or in the yoga and Pilates studio. Alternatively, make the most of the surrounding Mediterranean waters by heading out on a kayak or stand-up paddle board. Want to make the most of the view? Head to the Observation Deck at the front of the yacht to take in the rugged islands, coastal towns and clear blue waters or kick back in the Observation Lounge, complete with Swarovski telescopes so you don’t miss a thing. Exclusive Evening Entertainment Get even closer to the culture of your destination with a Scenic Enrich experience. Our Journey Designers have handpicked these experiences to give you exclusive access to private and unique performances that sum up exactly what a place is all about. While in the microstate of Monaco, for example, The Harpsody Orchestra will perform a concert for you in one of the historical halls of the Oceanographic Museum. In a city famed for its glitz and opulence, a private classical performance has never been more fitting. Dinner and a Nightcap It’s time for dinner at one of Scenic Eclipse’s 10 all-inclusive dining experiences. Whether it’s Italian at Element — you are in the Mediterranean after all — or an invitation-only private dégustation, dinner is always a culinary journey. After your meal, enjoy live music before toasting to a day well spent at one of the nine on board bars and lounges. Alternatively, retreat to your private verandah to end the day where it started — only this time, you’ll have a glass of Champagne in hand as you silently cruise through the Mediterranean Sea.

Discover a melting pot of cultures and cuisine as you voyage through a region of vast, pristine beauty. When you picture a quintessential, remote tropical island paradise, chances are that it is the very land and seascapes of Polynesia and the Pacific that come to mind. This part of the globe has a long-held fascination for explorers, adventurers, romantics and even filmmakers. For thousands of years, tribes from different islands have set sail to discover what other untouched islands lay beyond their own. A long history of voyaging and European colonisation have also influenced this region. In more recent times, everyone from French post-impressionist artist Paul Gaugin and mid-20th century actor Marlon Brando were lured to live here amid the tranquil breezes of swaying palms. There’s a staggering 40,000 islands scattered throughout Polynesia and the Pacific Islands. Each island is unique, and yet a traditional way of life still largely abounds in each region. You'll learn about the broad diversity of cultures throughout the many island groups which includes people and influences of Polynesian, Melanesian, Micronesian, Spanish, French and Indian origins. We are delighted to share five exciting new Scenic Eclipse itineraries in 2024. These voyages will sail through the French Polynesian Archipelago, the remote Chilean islands, the Pacific islands and the islands of New Zealand. Wherever you cruise, expect breath-taking scenery and exotic, lush landscapes that are postcard-perfect. Here are some of the island highlights that you can venture to in truly all-inclusive 6-star ultra-luxury. Bora Bora, French Polynesia Bora Bora is located in the Leeward Island group, northwest of Tahiti in French Polynesia, in the South Pacific archipelago. Tahiti is famous for its black sand beaches, waterfalls and lagoons – as well as its bustling capital Pape’ete. Yet it’s the spectacular volcanic mountain backdrop of nearby Bora Bora’s Mount Otemanu, covered in lush green vegetation, as well as the abundant marine life darting in its waters, that will capture your heart as you visit French Polynesia. Known as one of the world’s most beautiful lagoons, when travelling on Scenic Eclipse 16-Day Reefs & Volcanic Isles: Tahiti to Fiji voyage, you’ll see colourful fish, manta rays and reef sharks in the clear turquoise waters of Bora Bora. Your expert Discovery Team members will guide you on walks through the island’s volcanic landscape to discover the villages and meet locals – or on sea, perhaps kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding through the crystal waters. For an unforgettable aerial view over one of the world’s most romantic and picturesque islands, take to the skies in one of two Scenic Eclipse helicopters^. Hanga Roa (Easter Island), Chile, Southern Pacific The remote, volcanic Hanga Roa (Easter Island) is a Chilean territory located in the southeast of the Polynesian triangle. Shrouded in ancient mystery, the island is most famous for its approximately 1,000, remarkable stone monumental statues, called moai, that were created by the early Rapa Nui people. Discover the hauntingly beautiful archaeological sites and petroglyphs of the Rapa Nui National Park, a World Heritage-listed site, with your expert local guides and Discovery Team members; or even scuba dive to view a submerged moai statue when you travel on the Scenic Eclipse 23-Day Journey Across the Pacific: Easter Island and French Polynesia ultra-luxury voyage Pitcairn Island, South Pacific Located halfway between Chile and New Zealand in the South Pacific, Pitcairn Island is one of four in the Pitcairn Island Group and is a British-ruled territory of Polynesia. What’s fascinating about Pitcairn Island, the only one of the four to be inhabited, is its remote community of just 50 residents who are direct descendants of the mutineers of HMAV Bounty in 1789, and their Tahitian companions. Spot endemic flora and birds taking flight as you join the Discovery Team for a guided hike around the steep coastline of harsh, black lava and witness drawings and petroglyphs made by Polynesians who lived here centuries earlier. Visit during the 23-Day Journey Across the Pacific: Easter Island and French Polynesia voyage. Cook Islands, South Pacific The Cook Islands is a nation in the South Pacific, comprised of 15 islands with strong ties to New Zealand. In the north, the beautiful Aitutaki features a vast lagoon that is considered one of the world’s most spectacular, encircled by coral reefs and islets. On the Scenic Eclipse 16-Day Reefs and Volcanic Isles: Tahiti to Fiji voyage make use of the Tiwal sailing boats to explore the idyllic waters. At Palmerston Island, take a dip in the warm waters of ‘Dukes Pool’ – named in honour of the late Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip who swam in this natural pool during a rare trip in the 1970s. Back on board , you can rejuvenate with a treatment+ in the luxurious Senses Spa or soothe tired limbs in the infrared saunas. Yasawa Island Group, North-western Fiji Say Bula to this group of 20 volcanic islands that form the Yasawa Island Group of Fiji. This tropical oasis is the very essence of jaw-dropping beauty, with lush hiking trails, caves and palm-fringed, white beaches. This region was the setting for the filming of the Blue Lagoon movies (both the 1949 and 1980 versions). Be guided to the limestone island of Sawa-i-Lau, famous for its caves that are accessed by climbing stairs from the beach, passing a small door and then jumping into the larger cave’s pool. The second cave and pool can only be reached by swimming at low tide through an underwater tunnel. When cruising through here on the 13-Day Lagoons, Reef and Cultures of the Pacific itinerary voyage, take advantage of some of the clearest water on the planet by submerging below in the state-of-the-art submarine, Scenic Neptune^, to encounter marine life with panoramic clarity. Vava’u, Tonga Sail through the Vava’u island group of Tonga, consisting of one large island, Utu Vava’u, and 40 smaller coral islands in the South Pacific. Spot the imposing Mount Talau that towers over the main island. The stunning harbour opposite the town of Neiafu is popular with yacht owners. As well as the island’s production of vanilla bean, the region is renowned for its remarkably clear water, with clarity to the ocean’s floor of up to 40 metres in depth. For this reason, the beaches of Vava’u are extremely favourable for snorkelling. Head out with your expert Discovery Team members to the best, secret spots where you can enjoy a range of water sport activities, including snorkelling, at your leisure. You may also want to set off via kayak, stand-up paddleboard or Tiwal sailing boat in the numerous, sheltered coral coves. Visit during the 13-Day Lagoons, Reef and Cultures of the Pacific voyage. Tanna, Vanuatu Tanna is an island of Vanuatu’s Tafea Province. It was first settled by Melanesians in about 400 BC from surrounding islands. The island’s Mount Yasur is one of the world’s most accessible active volcanoes. Its ash eruptions attracted Captain James Cook in August 1774, as the first European to visit the island. As well as visiting the rim of the volcano, walking along the black sand beaches or diving the reefs, visiting the Iwea Port Resolution hot springs on the eastern side of the island is a fabulous way to immerse yourself, literally, into the island’s lush heartland. Visit with your Discovery Team members during the 13-Day Mysteries of Melanesia voyage. Isle of Pines, New Caledonia As the most southern of New Caledonia’s islands, almost on the Tropic of Capricorn, the Isle of Pines is considered the ‘Jewel of the Pacific’, named after the tall pine trees, that line its blindingly white, sand shores. It is the largest island in the marine area of the Great Southern Lagoon, a UNESCO World Heritage site. While there is much history to discover on shore, on the former 19th century penal colony, as well as fabulous views to be found from the 262-metre high N’ga Peak, you’ll find it hard to drag yourself away from the turquoise waters of its incredible beaches and bays such as Kuto Bay, Kanumera Bay, Upi Bay and Oro Bay (including its legendary natural sea water swimming pool). Let the Discovery Team transport you to all the magical spots. When you’re done, make a toast to the region’s French culture back on board with French champagne – perhaps from your private balcony or from Lumiere Restaurant and Champagne Bar. Visit Isle of Pines on the 15-Day Treasures of the Pacific: The Yasawas to New Zealand voyage.
