Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours celebrated the official christening of Scenic Eclipse on 10 September 2019. After setting sail on her maiden voyage from Reykjavík, Iceland, Scenic Eclipse arrived at Pier 88, Manhattan Cruise Terminal in New York City.
Scenic Eclipse godmother Dame Helen Mirren was joined at the christening ceremony by her husband, Academy Award-winning director Taylor Hackford, and welcomed on board by the ship’s co-owners, Glen and Karen Moroney.
“I was thrilled to be invited to take on the role of Scenic Eclipse godmother, even more so now that I have stepped aboard and seen the level of design detail and technology that have gone into her creation,” Dame Mirren said. “She is an exceptional cruising experience, and I’m honoured to have christened her. I wish her crew and guests many years of sailing adventures and discovery.”
