One of the most highly anticipated cruising vessels is now taking bookings for future journeys. Luxury cruise line, Scenic Tours, has just released the 2018/19 holiday brochure for its newest and most extravagant ship, Scenic Eclipse.

The 'World's First Discovery Yacht' is a unique addition to the market, boasting 6-star luxury throughout its 114 all-verandah suites, six onboard dining options and 450-square-metre spa sanctuary.

There's space for a total of 228 guests on each journey, so tickets are going to sellout fast, especially for the ultra-luxurious 233-square-metre, two-bedroom Owner's Penthouse Suite.

All guests will be treated to Scenic's signature all-inclusive opulence, along with a surprising amount of extras.

This will be complemented by a rich selection of destinations accessible via two onboard helicopters and a seven-seat submarine – truly unique sightseeing possibilities await.

The brochure includes every single itinerary along with preview pricing. Unfortunately, this is just a taste of what's to come, and travellers will have to wait until after Scenic Eclipse's official launch date (31 August, 2018) to experience this world-first cruising adventure.

The ship's maiden voyage will start in Istanbul and finish in Venice, followed by a collection of the world's must-visit destinations including Antarctica, Europe and the Norwegian Fjords. Here are some previews of what guests can expect from each location.

I love the kind of travelling that is one part strategic planning and two parts spontaneous adventure. Whether I'm exploring my local city or a small town in the middle of nowhere, I'm always hoping to find something no one else has discovered.
