Experience The Richness Of Europe On A Scenic River Cruise

Posted July 5th, 2017

Enrich your discovery of Europe with an all-inclusive Scenic river cruise that will create priceless moments that go way beyond the ordinary. Right from the moment that the white-gloved hand of your personal butler welcomes you aboard, each day of your cruise will produce a collection of treasured memories of secluded and beautiful locations in Europe.

Magical Memories

So make sure to forge magical memories with itinerary options like a gourmet dinner in a castle, followed by a classical concert in the opulent Palais Liechtenstein in Vienna. Plus experience the real Europe and dine with a local family, or engage in a discussion of the intricacies of winemaking with a master winemaker at their family vineyard. In the South of France experience the French extravaganza that is the can-can when you are treated to the exclusive gala spectacular, Scenic Rouge. All of these wonderful experiences are available with Scenic.

Scenic Freechoice – Explore at your own pace

Scenic Freechoice provides a broad range of hand-selected activities for you to choose from at a pace that suits, so you only see what you want to see. Explore national parks, pay your respects on a battlefield, visit homes of artists and royalty, shop with a chef in a local market. From history to culture, food to nature, there’s something for everyone.

Scenic Tailormade

Throughout your European itinerary, you can choose to be escorted with Scenic’s expert local guides or head off on your own personal tour with your Scenic Tailormade GPS which has tours available in over 140 locations in Europe. Designed to complement Scenic’s itineraries, head off the beaten track and explore further afield without getting lost – your chosen tour starts and returns to the ship location.

A 5-star floating hotel

Not only will your senses explode with the incredible sights and sounds of the European locations you visit, you will also be wowed by your superb 5-star accommodation and dining including complimentary top-shelf beverages and impeccable service on board your Scenic Space-Ship.

A cruise with Scenic is the ultimate indulgence of a lifetime. Each day, you are sure to discover a new little luxury that will surprise and delight you, like the pillow menu, Scenic Slumber beds and L’Occitane amenities, which are all complimentary and part of your cruise.

Also on board guests have full access to a wellness area, massage services, hair salon, gym, special on board entertainment, Wi-Fi internet, and e-bikes. The e-bikes (electronically assisted bicycles) provide freedom to get out and about at many locations during the cruise. So you can see even more of Europe up close and gently cycle around without breaking a sweat.

Small Ships – Large Design

From the bubbling vitality pool on selected ships, to the luxuriously appointed suites that are the largest of any river cruising vessel, every aspect of the ship’s design has been carefully thought out with a focus on guest comfort.

Features like the Riverview Terrace at the front of the Sun Deck have guests in mind - this is lowered most days to allow guests access even when passing under low bridges. The all-weather private balconies can be opened at the touch of a button to ensure you won’t miss a minute of the picture postcard scenery.

Scenic Service

Scenic recognises that it’s the fine details and the outstanding service that really make your trip memorable. Offering a butler to every guest is part of Scenic’s commitment to provide exceptional service that combines 5-star quality with personal attention to detail. So no matter whether it is a nightly turndown or a laundry concierge service that you are seeking, your butler is there to make your Scenic experience extra special.

European Vineyard

At the end of a delightful day of sightseeing and discovery, Scenic has thought of everything and created Scenic Sundowners. These are specially arranged and exclusive cocktail events, for guests to cap off a wonderful day’s exploration with a glass of wine (perhaps from grapes grown from vineyards that lie just beyond the river’s edge) in the company of newfound friends – and enjoy the perfect end to a perfect day.

To make sure you get to fully experience the richness of Europe, call us on 1300 954 661 to help you find the perfect Scenic cruise for you!
