Helen Mirren’s new role

Academy Award winner Helen Mirren is the newly appointed Godmother for Scenic Eclipse, The World’s First Discovery Yacht.

Scenic Eclipse is a unique ship that requires an equally unique person to act in this role,” said Glen Moroney, founder and chairman of Scenic, a luxury cruise and tour operator.

“We are delighted to welcome Helen Mirren as Scenic Eclipse Godmother. Her style, beauty and spirit of adventure are true to those embodied in the design and ethos of Scenic Eclipse. Combined with the international acclaim as one of the world’s finest actresses, Helen Mirren makes the perfect Godmother to preside over the ship.”

Helen Mirren added: “I am very honoured to have been chosen as the Godmother to such a beautiful vessel as Scenic Eclipse. She will have many adventures and a wonderful life as she transports her guests in immaculate style and great safety to beautiful places.”

As a traditional maritime role, the Godmother plays an important part within a ship’s christening ceremony and is responsible for the breaking of the champagne bottle against the ship’s hull. Many royal figures, actors, sports personalities and other persons of note have acted as Godmother to luxury vessels.

The maiden voyage of this luxury vessel is scheduled for 15 August 2019, departing Reykjavik Iceland on a 13-day discovery sailing, ending in Quebec on August 27.
