The Academy Award-winning actress will christen Scenic’s first Discovery Yacht in New York on 10 September.

Scenic has named Dame Helen Mirren as the godmother of Scenic Eclipse. The maiden voyage of the brand-new vessel is scheduled for 15 August 2019, departing Reykjavik on a 13-day discovery sailing, ending in Quebec on 27 August.

Glen Moroney, founder and chairman of Scenic, said, “We are delighted to welcome Helen Mirren as Scenic Eclipse godmother – her style, beauty and spirit of adventure are true to those embodied in the design and ethos of Scenic Eclipse. Combined with the international acclaim as one of the world’s finest actresses, Helen Mirren makes the perfect godmother to preside over the ship.”

Scenic Eclipse has 114 all-verandah suites ranging in size from 32 to 247 square metres; 10 dining options, from Asian fusion and French fine dining to a chef’s table and a poolside buffet; a 550-square-metre spa with a well-equipped gym and separate yoga and Pilates studio; two six-guest helicopters and one six-guest submarine capable of depths of nearly 200 metres; a state-of-the-art theatre for entertainment and lectures; indoor and outdoor plunge pools; butler service for all guests; and an almost 1:1 guest-to-staff ratio.
