I recently returned from a glamorous cruise on Scenic Eclipse around Baja California and the Sea of Cortez. The itinerary was wonderful, but the ship itself was exceptional! Scenic Eclipse is the world’s first luxury yacht and I felt 100% pampered the entire voyage. From my own personal butler to unbelievable dining experiences, never-ending drink selections, a plethora of fun activities to choose from and a spa I never wanted to leave- Scenic Eclipse has it all! Below are the top reasons to choose this cruise line next time you set sail.
Scenic Eclipse takes you to some of the world’s most spectacular destinations, from the frozen wilderness of Antarctica to the tropical paradise of the Caribbean. You’ll be able to see and experience things that you might never have thought possible! All in the extreme comfort of luxurious accommodations and amenities. Has crossing off the 7th continent been on your bucket-list? I can’t imagine a better ship to do it on! Especially with two helicopters and a submarine (can you even imagine?) Antarctica has some of the largest animals on the planet. Dreaming of a River Cruise down the Danube? The river cruise line is called Emerald and it is equally as spectacular as their ocean cruise line. Both are doing a 2 for 1 deal for a limited time!
The Scenic Eclipse has spacious suites, 24/7 butler service, an unbelievable spa and all the amenities you would expect from a 5-star hotel. You’ll be able to relax in comfort and style as you travel from one destination to the next. I shared a suite with my mother and there was plenty of space for the both of us. I enjoyed the relaxing living room area and spacious balcony. I visited the Spa daily and enjoyed the plunge pool, steam shower, sauna and infrared chairs. Enjoying the hot tubs on the top deck (with bar service) while watching the ship pull in and out of ports was a special experience I’ll never forget!
World-class dining and drinks
There are 10 unique dining experiences offered- everything from fine dining, casual eateries, a cooking class and a sushi bar! Honestly, cruising with Scenic Eclipse was the best food experience of my life! The executive chef was a winner on Top Chef and it showed. My favorite restaurant was Lumière- serving up a 7-course French meal with wine pairings (delicious!) Let’s not forget about the 70+ world class wines to choose from and a whiskey bar. One evening we did the “night market” where we witnessed an exceptional chef cook up 8 dishes right in front of our eyes. It was a delightful experience!
Scenic Eclipse offers a wide range of activities and excursions including kayaking, snorkeling, helicopter rides, stand up paddleboards and a submarine ride. I personally took the submarine ride 60 feet below water and it was a wild experience! I enjoyed stand-up paddleboarding around sea turtles on the Sea of Cortez. My land excursions were equally as exciting. I hung upside down in Cabo while ziplining and rode an ATV through magical wineries full of orange and olive trees in Ensenada (before wine tasting of course)! My mother enjoyed the hikes that were offered and a winery tour. Whether you’re looking for adventure or relaxation, there’s something for everyone!
The staff on board the Scenic Eclipse are incredibly friendly and offered exceptional service. From the moment you step on board, you’ll be treated like a VIP. I’m not kidding when I say I had my own personal butler- who brought me pinot grigio at 5pm everyday, breakfast in the morning and cappuccino in the afternoon. I was spoiled for life!
Overall, Scenic Eclipse cruise offers an unforgettable and luxurious experience that allows you to explore some of the world’s most beautiful and remote locations. If you’re looking for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, a Scenic cruise might be just what you’re looking for. And for a limited time, there is a 2 for 1 deal. As a preferred partner I can tack on added perks such as shipboard credit. What are you waiting for! Contact me to today to get you on board!
