Scenic cruise ship launch delayed five months

Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours has announced that the launch of the discovery yacht Scenic Eclipse has been delayed until late January, 2019.

The vessel’s intended August launch has been delayed due to construction issues with its shipbuilders, Uljanik Shipyard.

Scenic will provide guests of cancelled cruises with a full refund and consideration of any other reasonable associated costs incurred with their travel plans.

Scenic Eclipse was first ordered in 2015 and its keel was laid on April 29, 2017. It was floated out on January 31.

The construction of a sister ship was also announced on February 3.
