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 However, today the sites of ancient battles and medieval skirmishes have been replaced by a tranquil countryside, and thriving towns and villages.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

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.

Cruise on board a Scenic Space-Ship down the Danube, and from there you can journey all the way to the picturesque Black Sea.

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.

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.

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

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 throughout 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 vacation plans.

All-inclusive cover Staying true to our commitment of being all-inclusive, Scenic has partnered with a well-known global insurance company to offer, for the first time, 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, we automatically cover you in the price you pay for your cruise. We appreciate that you’ve invested a lot in your vacation with us and 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 certain events which prevent you from cruising, and are not considered typical or usual to river cruising. Our river cruising guarantee is designed to insure for unforeseen events rather than 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 in cash.
