Scenic latest line to appear on Cruising with Susan Calman

Scenic is the latest line to announce it is appearing on Channel 5’s Cruising with Susan Calman.

Scenic Eclipse will feature in episodes airing on February 9 and 15 as the TV presenter cruises in Antarctica.

Departing from Ushuaia, Calman will sail the Drake Passage before arriving in Antarctica where she will complete a polar plunge, kayak, take a helicopter ride and go beneath the water’s surface in a submersible.

She also dines at the chef’s table, visits the southernmost tip of Argentina and spots orcas, humpback whales, sealions and penguins.

The line said it is “thrilled” to participate in the programme, which it claimed is watched by one million viewers each week.

Nichola Absalom, managing director of sales and marketing, said: “Ahead of our biggest ever Antarctica season, we’re thrilled to have Susan on board experiencing our ultra-luxury expedition voyage.

“A TV programme with an engaged audience of this size offers Scenic a unique opportunity to showcase how a Discovery Yacht with just 200 guests is ideal for expedition cruising and elevates the experience in Antarctica.

“As seen on screen, Susan is able to land on the remote continent in places that larger ships would not be able to access. Scenic Eclipse is agile and the captain can change the itinerary at a moment’s notice for greater wildlife encounters.”
