The sea trials were held in the Adriatic Sea off the coast of Croatia, where the six-star ship has been under construction at the Pula shipyard.“It was a real pleasure to take Scenic Eclipse out to sea for the first time,” said Captain James Griffiths, Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours. “Sea trials are a critical milestone in the construction process as it is the first time all the ship systems are operated together and is a key opportunity to confirm the theoretical information from the tank tests and computer modelling. The results from these trials surpassed every expectation.“I have worked extensively with Azipods on other ships like Scenic Eclipse’s, and these sea trials confirmed to me how incredibly versatile and powerful they are, particularly when coupled with our oversized bow thrusters.“I was also delighted with how quiet the ship is. She was vibration free and virtually silent during all our trials, exceeding our expectations in terms of stability, manoeuvrability and performance,” Captain Griffiths added. With sea trials completed, Scenic Eclipse will now undergo the final touches to its interior and exterior and the final training of the onboard teams before the official launch and commencement of schedule of sailings.Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more
