World Cruises, A Quick Tour Of Scenic Eclipse & Special Offers From Princess & Seabourn

This week on Avid Cruiser, we feature a travel writer who has been on five world cruises, with two more booked.

Scenic Eclipse

Quick Tour Of Scenic Eclipse In Video

I flew to the Big Apple last week to tour Scenic Eclipse, a new expedition ship with lots of bells and whistles, including 10 dining venues, two helicopters, two submersibles and much more. The video was shot with a GoPro during a quick-paced 45-minute tour, then hastily edited on an iPad while flying back home, so don’t expect an Emmy-nominated presentation.
