2nd February 2018

Enrich your life with Scenic and experience an once-in-a-lifetime European 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.

So, make sure to forge magical memories with itinerary options such as a gourmet dinner in a castle, followed by a classical concert in Austria’s music capital Salzburg. Or why not 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? Or enjoy coffee and cake under the famous glass dome of the renovated Reichstag Building in Berlin?

Small ships – large design

From the bubbling vitality pool 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, which 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.

The people you meet on a Scenic cruise

Scenic recognises that the people you meet on your cruise are a very important part of this treasured experience and they know 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 (which are included for all guests), your butler is there to make your Scenic experience extra special.

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 grown from vineyards that lie beyond the river’s edge, in the company of newfound friends – and enjoy the perfect end to a perfect day.
