Scenic Issues Statement and Update on Eclipse

Scenic Eclipse

Scenic has issued a statement on the Scenic Eclipse, which has seen its delivery pushed back to April of 2019 from August of 2018 following issues at the Uljanik shipyard in Croatia.

The ship, in a recently released video, appears to be close to being finished.

Despite the delays and challenges, Scenic remains bullish on its first ocean ship, a six-star 228-guest vessel.

"As you will see, the build is progressing well with interior and exterior completion on schedule. However, the situation with Uljaniks Shipyards financial challenges remains, which has an ongoing impact on their part of the ships systems commissioning work," said Glen Moroney, Founder and Chairman of the Scenic Group. "Despite the Shipyards financial challenges the quality of workmanship is exceptional and there are many pleasant surprises in store. The on board team recruited early last year have been working constantly, despite the delays, to ensure the on board experience will match the standard of the ship. Our two helicopters have been delivered and the submarine took its first test dive in December.

"Although this has been an extremely challenging time both Karen and I, as well as the entire Eclipse team, cannot wait till you, our guests, experience Scenic Eclipse first hand. It will be everything we’ve promised and much more. We greatly appreciate your valued support during this period and I will provide a further update by mid-February."
