Scenic have announced a five-episode, access-all-areas documentary series launching from 4th June 2023 on Discovery+.
The Scenic Eclipse Maritime Masters series will allow viewers to witness the behind-the-scenes of the ship and be introduced to the Masters: Scenic Eclipse Captain Erwan Le Rouzic, Expedition Operations Director Jason Flesher and VP Hotel Operations Chef Tom Goetter.
The series intimately shares, in real time, the challenges that need to be overcome in order to create a life-changing, ultra-luxury experience for the guests that Scenic is renowned for.
In five episodes, the Scenic Eclipse Maritime Masters series will cover:
Episode One: The Beginning
Setting sail from San Diego, Scenic Eclipse begins the epic voyage to Antarctica. Here, viewers are introduced to the show’s main characters before the first expedition to Jacques Cousteau Island, Mexico. You can also expect to see the first commercial submersible night dive in Huatulco, Mexico.
Episode Two: Dishing Up Dreams
In this episode, Jason takes the guests on an awe-inspiring hike in Guatemala. In El Salvador, Jed, a crew member, leads a cacao mission whilst Erwan battles rough seas in Costa Rica. Due to the weather conditions, Josh, the Cruise Director, finds himself under pressure to throw a surprise Halloween party for the guests alongside Chef Tom giving an incredible opportunity to Chef Strawberry.
Episode Three: Journey To The End Of The World
Navigational obstacles occurs when the ship sails through the English Narrows. Meanwhile, the first ever submarine dive takes place in the Chilean Fjords. By setting foot on land at the precarious Cape Horn, Captain Radomir strives to achieve a ‘first’ for the Discovery Yacht.
Episode Four: Deception Island
The ship experiences a rare weather occurrence whilst traversing the Drake Passage and so Captain Erwan must provide a ‘wind block’. The biggest highlight for guests in this episode is the appearance from the penguins.
Episode Five: New Beginnings
In the final episode, the Discovery Team lead a memorable penguin expedition on Danco Island. Brendon and Jason conduct a search for 10,000 year old glacier ice to make an Antarctica-themed cocktail. We witness the expert navigation of the Lemaire Channel by Captain Erwan. Crew and guests undertake the ‘polar plunge’ – a swim in the freezing cold waters.
Keep your eyes peeled for what could be next – possibly a new Discovery Yacht?
