    Aboard M/V Eclipse, Southern Circuit

    Cruise the islands on one of the newest, medium-sized ships

    Additional Information

    About the Ship

    The M/V Eclipse provides an exceptional level of comfort and elegance. She is an expedition vessel, 210 feet long accommodating up to 48 passengers in 27 cabins.

    Ships the size of the Eclipse would normally accommodate many more passengers, but in designing her layout, cabin numbers were limited in order to provide passengers with unrivaled cabin space and ample social areas. The Eclipse is unique in offering the generous accommodation of a larger vessel, while preserving the atmosphere and exclusivity of a smaller yacht.
    Fully air-conditioned, the Eclipse’s spacious cabins have either a double or twin bed arrangement, with two bedside tables, a writing desk, two chairs, ample closet space, and an internal communication system. The well-appointed bathrooms consist of a shower, toilet, sink, cabinet, hairdryer, and a basket of toiletries, with fresh towels provided every day.
    The Eclipse has a well-equipped lounge for relaxation and for the nightly briefings on the day’s discoveries and the following day’s activities. There is also as well-stocked library for quiet study and reading. In addition to the elegant indoor dining room, there is also an al-fresco dining area located around the pool, where you can enjoy the islands’ spectacular scenery over a delicious lunch.
