With Scenic it’s more than a river cruise, it’s truly all-inclusive luxury in a class of its own
With Scenic, the difference is in the details. our river cruises are meticulously designed, immaculately presented and truly all-inclusive. Our finely crafted itineraries offer premium experiences, blending the alluring European countryside with our signature on board amenities. It’s more than a river cruise, it’s truly all-inclusive luxury in a class of it’s own.
You’ll relax and settle into one of the most spacious suites in the world of river cruising — a private retreat where you can enjoy the ever-changing view with your morning coffee, write postcards in the afternoon, and sink into soft Egyptian cotton sheets after a day of exploring. Butler service comes standard with every suite on Scenic Space-Ships, and nearly 85 percent of our suites have a private balcony that converts into a Scenic Sun Lounge at the touch of a button. All beverages are complimentary, too — right down to your personal mini-bar.
Dining onboard is an epicurean experience with up to five dining venues to suit all guests. Crystal Dining is our main dining room offering fresh choices every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Enjoy a casual meal in the river café or cozily dine-in with room service. Set aside at least one evening for Portobello’s (L’Amour on French river cruises), an intimate venue showcasing locally inspired cuisine. Select Suite and Diamond Deck guests will receive an invitation to dine at Table La rive (Table D’or on Portugal river cruises). This six-course culinary experience is paired with sommelier-selected wines during an intimate evening for just 10 guests.
Whatever wellness means to you, be confident to tailor every moment on board to your needs. Whether that be e-bike riding, keeping active with exercise programs or a relaxing massage. on select ships, be sure to relax in our therapeutic Salt Therapy Lounge, the first of it’s kind on a river cruise ship.
It’s more than just interesting shore excursions, Scenic Freechoice allows you to personalize your river cruise and pursue your own interests at a pace that suits you. In Budapest, tour the historic district, explore the city’s Jewish heritage, or join an excursion to historic Szentendre, a stroller’s delight of shops and cafés. In Amsterdam, take a canal boat cruise on board a glass-top boat. or perhaps visit Schönbrunn Palace, the summer residence of the Hapsburg family, while in Vienna. carefully curated Scenic Enrich experiences elevate your cultural discoveries to the realms of royalty and to fable, folklore and sophistication. Stirring strings revive the music of Mozart and Strauss at Palais Lichtenstein. Become immersed in Bordeaux’s digital art installation, Les Bassins de Lumières. or get revved up on a visit to Motorworld in cologne, home to the private collection of Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher.
True gourmands can reproduce exquisite meals and this is exactly what you will learn to do during your Scenic Culinaire cooking experience. Scenic’s expert chefs guide groups of 10 guests through the consummate artistry of French cuisine, using locally sourced, fresh and seasonal ingredients. The cooking class of a lifetime for a lifetime of classy cooking.
In 2022, we will be offering several special departures featuring the Floriade Horticulture expo in The Netherlands and the Oberammergau Passion Play in Germany. Both events are offered once-a-decade, with the Passion Play having been postponed in 2020 due to the global pandemic. Our new culinary cruise itineraries, Flavors of Bordeaux and Tastes of Southern France, will also make their debut in 2022. Discover the art of French cooking and be a part of France’s love affair with food.
