Do all suite types have included butler service? Are my transfers included to and from the ship? Are all tipping and gratuities included? Are all shore excursions included with nothing to pay once on board?

B

Are there a range of touring options to choose from each day based on my interests and desired activity levels? Are there options for self-guided touring and are e-bikes included at no charge?

Portugal At Scenic, we are always enhancing our itineraries, listening to our guest feedback and ensuring the best experiences. Here is a selection of highlights for 2021 in Portugal, to ensure your holiday is truly unforgettable.

A

We recognise that our guests want to discover the ‘real’ Portugal in the shape of gems hidden away from the tourist trail, so we have created a selection of unique cultural encounters in our 2021 itineraries. With Scenic Enrich and Scenic Freechoice, you will find yourself immersed in the traditional villages of the serene Douro Valley, where grapevine-covered hills line the banks of the river. The locals are delighted to open their homes to Scenic guests, so you can enjoy their warm hospitality and age-old traditions. You will leave feeling like one of the family (with a very full stomach).

Provesende Village

C

Scenic has been visiting the village of Provesende, a treasure perched high in the Douro Valley, for many years. So special is this village, we have made it a Scenic Enrich experience on our Unforgettable Douro river cruise for 2021. Take a walking tour to the local church for a short piano recital, bake traditional bôla at the bakery and explore the historic manor house. Meet local families and enjoy a home-hosted lunch and port - it’s some of Portugal’s best.

Freixo de Espada à Cinta In the North East region of Portugal, along the Douro River Valley, you will have the opportunity to explore the medieval-style village of Freixo de Espada à Cinta. This town is known for its high quality artisan silks and is the only municipality in Portugal where silk is still

processed entirely by hand. From the silkworm eggs through to the extraction process, and then the weaving. Learn about this process and then wander through the quaint streets to a local home for a hosted lunch of delectable Portuguese delicacies.

Luxury Europe River Cruises

Scenic

Life on the river If you are dreaming of experiencing a river cruise, be prepared to fall in love with one of the greatest joys in the world. As your 5-star floating hotel cruises through some of the most iconic waterways of Europe, not only will you witness Mother Nature at her best, but also human engineering at its finest. Locked Rivers

Constant State of Flux

Europe’s waterways are distinctive with varying water levels. To make traversing these waters seamless, water locks were invented. A lock is essentially an elevator with which ships can be raised or lowered to overcome the water level disparities. Europe’s waterways are filled with locks and the MainDanube Canal has 16 locks, some as high as 25 metres. The invention of the water locks is a true engineering marvel with Italian scientist and artist, Leonardo da Vinci, pitching in to perfect the process. Watching your Captain expertly manoeuvre your Scenic Space-Ship through the narrow canals is a special treat that awaits you on board.

As with any other element of Mother Nature, rivers have personalities of their own. Our state-of-the-art Scenic SpaceShips are designed to convert easily to slide under all kinds of bridges. While we make every effort to plan our trips to the last degree, some days the water levels simply don’t co-operate. This leads to lock closures or difficulties passing under historic and often low-slung bridges when water levels are either too high or too low. Our local offices throughout Europe monitor levels closely to handle all navigation issues in a timely and efficient manner to minimise disruptions.

B

A

What does an itinerary deviation look like? How could it impact my trip and how might I be compensated? A deviation can be a quick, minor inconvenience, a prolonged change or an extended disruption depending on the circumstances. A minor disruption may include:

A Scenic Diamond, Bordeaux, France B Panorama Lounge and Bar, Scenic Sapphire C Scenic Space-Ship navigating a lock

*Not valid for Russia

In the event that a ship can’t pass through a section of the river (due to water levels, a closed lock or river obstruction, for example), we use coaches to transfer you from your original Scenic Space-Ship to a new Space-Ship on the other side of the obstruction. These “ship swaps” are performed with the least impact possible with your Cruise Director accompanying you onto the new ship with your belongings to ensure the remainder of the cruise is as enjoyable as possible. You will be accommodated in a suite of the same type and value; should this not be possible you will be compensated the difference in the value of the suites.


37

Your Included River Cruise Cover*

A prolonged disruption may include:

An extended disruption or major impact to your itinerary:

Using coach transfers to the included sightseeing locations, while continuing to be accommodated on your Scenic Space-Ship. A prolonged disruption may also require us to continuously cruise without stopping for touring. Under Scenic’s River Cruise Cover you will be compensated between $100-$200 per person per day of the disruption should we not be able to fulfill the sightseeing listed in the itinerary.

In the event of an extended disruption, accommodation off ship will be in local hotels with all meals provided. To the best of our ability we will ensure the hotels are of similar standard to your Scenic Space-Ship. Meals will be included, however, alcoholic drinks and amenities such as butler service, may or may not be included. Touring will be undertaken by coach. As we understand this experience will not be same as being on board the Scenic Space-Ship, under Scenic’s River Cruise Cover you will be compensated based on the suite category booked, between $300-$800 per person per day for up to seven days. Alternatively, a full refund for the remainder of the cruise should you choose to disembark and end/finish your journey.

C

Staying true to our commitment of being truly all-inclusive, your Scenic river cruise automatically includes peace of mind River Cruise Cover. This may be enacted in the event of a deviation to compensate you for any changes to your itinerary. Scenic is committed to open and transparent communication. Should information about potential issues be available prior to your departure we will notify you and allow you to make an informed decision about your travel plans. Should the impact happen during your cruise, you will be notified by your Cruise Director on board that River Cruise Cover has been enacted. Once your cruise is complete, we will review the total number of days that were disrupted and provide you with a letter upon your return home with the amounts that can be claimed and details of the claims process. We appreciate that you’ve invested a lot of time and funds for your holiday with us, so we want to ensure that we provide you with peace of mind when travelling with Scenic.

Jewels of Europe 15 Day Cruise

Amsterdam > Budapest

Grand palaces and fairytale castles A region steeped in the history of ancient trade routes, today the rivers of the Rhine, Main and Danube meander through forested hillsides, idyllic vineyards and romantic towns. Restored castles still stand watch from their position atop dramatic hilltops, just as they did in the days of feudal knights and land barons. However, today the sites of ancient battles and medieval skirmishes have been replaced by a tranquil countryside with thriving towns and villages. Elsewhere, romantic ruins echo with a timeless beauty and Gothic spires rise out of the picturesque communities nestled along the river banks. This is a journey that will take you through the Europe of your imagination, full of wonder, recalling medieval jousts, cobbled streets and childhood fairytales while creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Jewels of Europe with Paris & Prague 21 Day Cruise & Tour

Paris > Prague

Wondrous cities and towns From Paris, Europe’s ‘City of Light’, to Prague, the ‘Paris of the East’, this is a journey that begins and ends with two of Europe’s most beautiful cities, and features a string of glittering towns in between. Travel the canals of Amsterdam, where meandering waterways bypass buildings that haven’t changed since Holland’s great voyages of discovery centuries ago. Visit Cologne, with its towering cathedral, and timeless Vienna, spiritual home to Europe’s greatest composers. If you’re after great food, there’s more than enough in this itinerary to get you salivating, including visits to Regensburg, known for its delectable wurst, and Bamberg, equally famous for its world-class smoked beer. And if you’re looking for more than just cuisine, rest assured - Nuremberg, Melk, and Marksburg Castle will provide a feast for all the senses.

Romantic Rhine & Moselle 15 Day Cruise

Zurich > Amsterdam

Romance is alive and well on the Rhine Anyone who doesn’t believe in the power of romance has never travelled along the Rhine or its idyllic tributary, the Moselle. In fact, on this itinerary, there’s probably a fairytale moment waiting just beyond the next river bend. The castles that grace this region sometimes seem as if they were lifted straight from the silver screen – hardly surprising as it’s a region that’s long been favoured by Hollywood directors. From Lorelei, the Rhine river siren said to lure sailors to their demise, to the legendary Black Forest, which still resonates with imaginative children’s tales, there are stories of romances galore to discover and delight in. You may even compose a few new ones of your own.

CHRISTMAS CRUISES Celebrate the most wonderful time of the year in some of the most wonderful places in the world. — Few experiences compare to the wonder of celebrating Christmas in Europe. Christmas carols are more melodious when you’re strolling through some of the prettiest squares of Vienna, resplendent with a thousand fairy lights. Christmas sweets are extra delicious when picked from the quaint ‘Budens’ of Cologne Cathedral Christmas Market. And Christmas memories are unforgettable when wrapped in the irresistible aromas of toasted almonds, spiced glühwein, warm gingerbread cookies, and the sight of freshly fallen snow.

Take a journey down a river of dreams The Seine isn’t the largest river in Europe, or even France, but it may be the most renowned – and for good reason. This splendid waterway cuts through the heart of Paris, before winding its way along some of the most celebrated sites in northern France. There are few superlatives that do justice to beautiful Paris, as you’ll have ample opportunity to discover. Beyond Paris, you can look forward to a serene cruise to Honfleur, by the open waters of the English Channel, pausing at the most beautiful landmarks along the way.

Unforgettable Douro 11 Day Cruise

Porto > Porto

A truly timeless place Portugal’s Douro River winds its way through towns that have somehow managed to preserve their distinctive culture and way of life, even as the world all around them has succumbed to change.

The vineyards that grace the banks of the Douro are worked the way vineyards in the region always have been. The wines they produce, from the many highly loved varieties of port, to their fine unfortified reds and whites, are as rich and plentiful as ever. The fare is as honest and as delicious as it was in days of yore. And, most refreshing of all, the communities are every bit as friendly and welcoming.
