After a day in this hidden gem of a town, I can see why the Impressionist masters flocked to it because of its extraordinary play of light and beauty. I’m tempted to pick up a brush myself. Morgan, 50 Honfleur, France N 49° 25’ E 0° 13’


WONDER We all strive to feel a closer connection with our surroundings, moments when we move beyond the physical and become truly emotionally engaged in an experience with all of our senses — a moment of wonder. Wonder is a personal emotion, it’s about the heart and the mind, joy, surprise, curiosity and awe. Wonder can be a whole day or a fleeting moment. Travel is about more than distance. It offers us not just a journey across the world to see new sights but to the heart of what it means to be human. It allows us to step outside our normal parameters and become enriched by what we encounter. It presents us with limitless possibilities to become more than we were before. At Scenic we celebrate the art of wonder through travel. Our aim is to elevate your trip from a mere holiday into a journey of discovery. Never lose your sense of wonder.

EUROPE The rivers of Europe have shaped not only the beautiful undulating landscape — but also the histories of the diverse regions they flow through. Once vital trade routes now flow with people who have come simply to experience the magic of these majestic rivers. The banks are still lined with the magnificent architecture of times past but the cultures and traditions are very much alive today. To feel the magic for yourself, cruise the waterways of the Rhine, Main, Danube and Moselle through diverse countries such as the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Hungary.

Jewels of Europe 15 Day Cruise

A

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 However today, the sites of ancient battles and medieval skirmishes have been replaced by a tranquil countryside, and thriving towns and villages.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 fairy tales.

From charming villages to great cultural centres, you can look forward to the hum and buzz of Christmas, as English Channel treats and toys, charms and trinkets of every description come out in a joyful display. This is a tradition that has changed very little across the centuries. In many places, the delicacies and decorations still take a very traditional form, and you’d be forgiven for wondering whether you’ve somehow stepped back in time with the ‘Ghost of Christmas Past’.

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 down this stretch of the Rhine, or its idyllic tributary, the Moselle. In fact, on this itinerary, there’s probably a fairytale moment lying in wait for you just beyond the next river bend. The castles that grace this region sometimes seem as if they were lifted straight from the silver screen, and that’s 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 and romances galore to discover, and delight in. You may even compose a few new ones of your own.

FRANCE Ever since the Romans arrived people have been coming to France, and staying. — France is the world’s top tourist destination and has indelibly imprinted itself into our consciousness. You simply have to experience this beautiful country at least once in your life. Cruise the waterways of the Seine, Saône and Rhône, and Bordeaux regions, visit the châteaux of the Loire, taste the wines of Bordeaux, see the ‘city of light’, smell the lavender-scented air of Provence, and feel the sand of the Riviera between your toes. In France, beauty is everywhere, and its reverence for art, history and gastronomy make every day a unique experience.

Additionally we’ve introduced a vitality pool, gym and spa. A highlight of these ships will be the two new one-bedroom Royal Owners’ Suites. At a huge 510 square feet, these suites are our largest in Europe.

Scenic has transformed one of our on board dining venues into a private cooking emporium. The dedicated space will feature cooking stations, a cheese and wine cellar, fresh ingredients will be sourced from local markets and our cooking instructors will introduce you to regional recipes you’ll adore. We’ve even included a live camera and screen so that you won’t miss a thing as you cook. And of course the best bit will be the tastings at the conclusion of each class. Even if you’ve cruised through France before, we can promise that you’ve never travelled in this way before.

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. From elegant Lamego to Regua and Vega de Terron you’ll find that people still ply their traditional trades in the historic pockets of the Douro Valley. 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.

A tale of two rivers Even with the sheer abundance of beautiful rivers to choose from, the Seine and Douro are two of Europe’s most tempting waterways. In many ways, both are like worlds unto themselves, providing spectacular regional beauty and a wealth of historic interest that would be hard to match anywhere. The Seine, which flows languidly towards the English Channel, boasts spectacular cathedrals, impressive limestone cliffs, flowering orchards and, not least, the grand architectural wonder of the ‘city of light’, magnificent Paris. The Douro begins its journey in vibrant Porto, Portugal’s second largest city before entering a land that time seems to have forgotten. Combine the two in one wonderful itinerary and you can look forward to enjoying a truly spectacular experience.

RUSSIA Is there a country more multilayered than Russia? — It’s a land of stark contrasts – dark and light, tumultuous and sublime. From the grace of the Bolshoi to the might of the Kremlin, from the treasures of the Hermitage to the echo of marching boots in Red Square, Russia is magnificent and compelling. Start your cruise in either St. Petersburg or Moscow and wind your way along the mighty Volga River through a culturally rich and diverse region. In the process, experience such wonders as The Kremlin, Red Square, Peterhof Palace, St. Basil’s Cathedral, Kizhi Island and Lake Lagoda.

Russia’s many mysteries revealed In the words of Winston Churchill, mighty Russia has always been ‘a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.’ From the haunting beauty of St. Petersburg to the might and splendour of Moscow, Russia remains one of the most intriguing countries in the world. It is, after all, a land as vast as it is beautiful. Visit the iconic Hermitage, watch ballet performed by the masters, sample vodka and visit the mighty Kremlin. There’s simply no better way to traverse this land than along Russia’s unique and majestic waterways. The best option by far is a luxury cruise on board Scenic Tsar. Life on board this boutique ship, which is unique in Scenic’s impressive fleet, is an incomparable blend of luxury and intimacy.

Luxury Europe River Cruises

Scenic

Life on the river One of the best things about a Europe river cruise with Scenic is the opportunity to get out on the water, to soak up the ambience and watch the magnificence sail by. Mother Nature is utterly awe-inspiring and the rivers of Europe showcase her finest features. What is a lock? The geography of Europe is both stunning and challenging when it comes to navigation. The original river systems often wind through mountainous landscapes making it difficult for vessels to traverse the depth variances of the river. Thanks to ingenuity and great feats in engineering the locks system was created to tackle this issue. A lock is essentially an elevator where ships can be raised higher or lower. Locks are built in places where the level of the water in the river or canal suddenly changes. Each river we cruise along in Europe has locks, for example, on the Main Danube Canal there are 16 locks, some as high as 25 metres, that assist us to cross a mountainous section of our cruise. Rising and falling Europe’s beautiful rivers are occasionally at the mercy of the elements which

Würzburg 177m

A

can mean we encounter lock closures or difficulties passing under historic and often low-slung bridges when water levels are either too high or too low. Scenic has a range of carefully prepared plans ready to activate at the drop of a hat, should our ships encounter any water level issues. Our state-of-the-art Space-Ships are designed to convert easily so they can slide under all kinds of bridges if the water is too high, allowing our expert crews to continue navigating even the trickiest waterways, but when the water on these rivers is simply impossible to work around, we are ready to put our contingencies into action. Local support We have local offices thoughout Europe which ensure that if there are any navigation issues at all, they are dealt with in a timely and efficient manner, which means minimal disruption to your holiday plans.
