From the fjords of Norway to the sunny coast of Spain’s Costa del Sol, and onto the green hills of Ireland,  Getaway and Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours, explore the all-inclusive land excursions available on two of the unique 2019/2020 itineraries for Scenic Eclipse, the World’s First Discovery Yachts, launching in 2019.

Tune into Channel Nine’s Getaway and be part of these exciting Scenic Eclipse journeys with three half hour episodes, Saturday 3, 10 and 17 November 2018.

The 13 day Norwegian Fjords Uncovered cruise starts at $11,995 per person departs in June 2020; and the 14 day Jewels of Iberia and Ireland cruise starts at $14,495 per person departing in May 2019.  Both departures includes Scenic’s unprecedented offer for guests that book early, to secure a 10% saving, and Getaway viewers can also receive an additional US$200 per person on board credit.

The three part Getaway series commences in Norway, a land of stunning landscapes, Viking history and a network of fjords that are a great wonder of the world. Travel with David Reyne as he explores the fjord system via Zodiac, discover the incredible wildlife and marine creatures that inhabit this sometimes harsh environment, and explore the labyrinth of cave systems of Gudvangen. Then travel the world’s steepest rail journeys, the Flåm Railway and visit a working Viking village for a day of undeniably stunning scenery and tales of the ancient and sometimes blood thirsty history of the region. Then from the countryside to the city of Trondheim, once the capital of Norway and now a modern edgy city with remnants of its’ historic at every turn.

Episode two sees David journey to Spain and one of the world’s oldest cities, Malaga. Discover the proud history of the city with its castles and defences against pirates of the 13th century, then venture into the birthplace of Pablo Picasso and the museum housing 233 of the works. Head inland to Cordoba and the world heritage listed Jewish Quarter, sitting alongside the cities largest landmark, the 24,000 square metre former mosque which is now a catholic cathedral. Then travel with David to Granada, a vibrant city and home to the magnificent Alhambra Palace and the Great Bazaar of Granada. Then onto the port city of Seville where Scenic Eclipse is able to dock overnight right in the city centre.

And so, Episode Three, onto the green hills of Ireland stopping at the port cities of Waterford, Dingle Cobh and Dublin. David kicks off his discovery of Ireland in the beautiful south west at the tiny village of Dingle perched on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. Stopping at Cobh, embarkation point for 123 passengers of the Titanic and now home to a dedicated museum. From Cobh to Waterford, one of Ireland’s main shipping ports and home to a wealth of history in its famed medieval museum. And finally onto a merry stopover in Dublin, capital city and home to the Guinness emporium, Trinity College and the institution of Brazen Head, the city’s oldest pub dating back to 1198 and still serving pints to this day.
