It’s your own private oasis, where you can enjoy breakfast, read a quiet chapter or sip a glass of complimentary wine as you admire the sunset. Our one-bedroom Royal Owner’s Suite will surpass all expectations, while our expansive Royal and Royal Panorama Suites set the industry standard in river cruising accommodation.

River Cruising Guarantee Staying true to our commitment of being all-inclusive, Scenic has partnered with a well-known global insurance company to offer peace of mind river cruising travel insurance. On every Scenic river cruise you’ll be automatically covered once you commence your cruise for any delays or cancellations that occur due to weather, natural disasters, mechanical breakdowns or strikes. There’s nothing extra to pay, as we automatically cover you in the price you pay for your cruise. We appreciate that you’ve invested a lot of time, effort and funds for your holiday with us, so we want to ensure that we provide you with peace of mind when travelling with Scenic. Our river cruising guarantee is designed to give you comfort and assurance for specific events which may prevent you from cruising on the planned itinerary.

The river cruising guarantee is designed to specifically insure for unforeseen events, rather than any minor delays or deviations. In the event that a claim is required, instead of the industry standard of future cruise credits you will be refunded. Add on extras Travel insurance is an essential element of your journey. For any general travel insurance covering things like lost luggage, flight cancellations, medical and other standard travel items, Scenic can help to organise this for you. Be sure you ask your travel agent or us at the time of booking and we’ll provide you with further relevant details.

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 However, today the sites of ancient battles and medieval skirmishes have been replaced by a tranquil countryside with thriving towns and villages.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 City Highlights 24 Day Cruise & Tour

Paris > Berlin

Ancient and modern treasures Paris is an architectural wonderland without equal, and Berlin, the site of so many momentous world events, is the perfect counterpoint. A journey that takes in the marvels of both the Eiffel Tower and the Brandenburg Gate has to rank as something truly special, and those are merely the start and end points of an incredible itinerary. You can look forward to taking a closer look at European history, in its full sweeping splendour, from the French Revolution to the Cold War, as well as many of the continent’s finest cultural high points – Amsterdam, Vienna and the timeless charms of Prague. For most of the journey, you’ll be experiencing it in all-inclusive 5-star luxury on a Scenic Space-Ship.

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 and romances galore to discover and delight in. You may even compose a few new ones of your own.

Normandy & Gems of the Seine 11 Day Cruise

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. Les Andelys, Rouen, Caudebec-en-Caux – all the key points in this itinerary are steeped in history and brimming with charm. However, we’ve saved some highlights – evocative Vernon and medieval Conflans – for the return trip, including one last unforgettable fling in Paris.
