Today, set against the beautiful backdrop of New York City, Scenic celebrated the official christening of Scenic Eclipse – the World’s First Discovery Yacht™.

Following her maiden voyage from Reykjavík, Iceland, Scenic Eclipse arrived at Pier 88, Manhattan Cruise Terminal. Scenic Eclipse Godmother, Dame Helen Mirren, who was joined by her husband, Taylor Hackford, was welcomed on board by ship’s co-owners Glen and Karen Moroney. Glen Moroney, Chairman and Founder of Scenic said: “It was an honour to welcome Helen and Taylor on board and to share with them our vision and passion which together with the dedication and talent of the Scenic team has created an experience which has set a brand new benchmark in discovery cruising.”

Mr Moroney delivered a short speech, describing the creative drive and determination to deliver such a unique sailing experience and detailed the history of the build from its first moment of conception.

The official naming ceremony was attended by over 350 global media, agents and VIP’s who witnessed Dame Helen Mirren christen the ship dockside by breaking the ceremonial bottle of champagne against the hull and bestowing the traditional blessing of safekeeping over all those that sail in her. Dame Helen Mirren said of the celebration, “I was thrilled to be invited to take on the role of Scenic Eclipse godmother, even more so now that I have stepped aboard and seen the level of design detail and technology that have gone into her creation. She is an exceptional cruising experience, and I’m honoured to have christened her. I wish her crew and guests many years of sailing adventures and discovery.”

Scenic Eclipse has been designed to deliver the ultimate experience of a lifetime for its 228 guests. Taking ocean cruising to a whole new level, the ship marries luxury and discovery with the ultimate in safety and sustainability, giving guests the opportunity to explore above and beyond what was previously imaginable.
