Scenic Group’s Scenic Eclipse will do a series of itineraries in the Red Sea for the first time in 2021.
The company’s first purpose-built ocean cruise ship — and the world’s first Discovery Yacht — will sail Saudi waters from July 17 to Dec. 9, 2021.
Selected sailings from October to December will be open to international guests who are looking to experience Saudi heritage, its landscapes and its hospitality.
Glen Moroney, Founder and Chairman of Scenic Group pointed out that: “Saudi Arabia will be one of the hottest tourist destinations in coming years and we’re very glad guests will get to experience it in 6-star comfort on board Scenic Eclipse.”
Moroney continued: “As a business, we continue to raise the bar in ultra-luxury cruising and we are confident that this new season will mark the start of a long relationship with the destination and hope to be able to offer more sailings in the region in the coming seasons as the world starts to open up for international travel.”
The Scenic Eclipse will home port in Jeddah Islamic Port on the Red Sea coast. It will offer charter services with unique itineraries, as well as pre-planned itineraries. Among the numerous destinations scheduled is Yanbu, the diving capital of Saudi Arabia.
Outside of Saudi, Scenic Eclipse will also have the possibility of visiting Aqaba in Jordan and Port Ghalib Marina, just a short distance from Luxor in Egypt.
