“We are very proud to play a major role in bringing this ultra-luxury ship to life, especially the sumptuously appointed guest suites and extraordinary spa suites,” De Wave Group CEO Riccardo Pompili commented.
As Scenic’s second “discovery yacht,” the Eclipse II will accommodate up to 228 guests in 114 suites. The vessel will be taking its guests to explore places like Greenland, Iceland and the Norwegian fjords.
