VANCOUVER — Scenic Eclipse is officially afloat, setting sail on its inaugural voyage today from Reykjavik to Quebec.

“Today is the fruition of many years of planning and work from a large and dedicated team to create a vessel and an experience which has set a brand new benchmark in ultra-luxury discovery cruising,” said Glen Moroney, chairman and founder of Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours. “We are extremely proud of this ship and what it brings to the world of cruising. In terms of innovation, technology and design, it is second to none.”

Moroney noted the ship’s onboard helicopters and submarine, as well as its handcrafted itineraries as top selling points. He also credits Karen Moroney, Project Director – Design, and her dedicated design team with creating an ultra-luxe ship.

On what guests can expect onboard, Karen said: “This is more than just a cruise ship, this is a total sensory experience, from the entry foyer to the guest suites and the dining areas, the feel is one of calm, luxury and serenity to allow our guests to truly relax and take in the total voyage experience.”
