Scenic Eclipse sea trials surpass expectations

Scenic Eclipse is now undergoing final outfitting at Uljanik shipyard

Scenic Eclipse sea trials ‘surpassed every expectation,’ according to Capt. James Griffiths of Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours.

‘I have worked extensively with Azipods on other ships like Scenic Eclipse’s, and these sea trials confirmed to me how incredibly versatile and powerful they are, particularly when coupled with our oversized bow thrusters,’ Griffiths said.

Vibration free and virtually silent

He also was ‘delighted with how quiet the ship is. She was vibration free and virtually silent during all our trials, exceeding our expectations in terms of stability, maneuverability and performance. Scenic Eclipse really does manage to combine small ship maneuverability with big ship levels of comfort and quietness; it’s quite remarkable to experience it,’ Griffiths continued.

Scenic Eclipse will now undergo the final touches to its interior and exterior and complete training of the on-board teams before its entry into service.

The inaugural cruise is scheduled for Aug. 15.
