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 However, today the sites of ancient battles and medieval skirmishes have been replaced by a tranquil countryside and thriving towns and villages.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

Immerse yourself in tales old and new Not all of Europe’s most riveting history lies in the distant past, in tales of royal feuds, religious schisms and medieval intrigues. In fact, many of the most interesting aspects of its history are considerably English Channel closer to now. Nothing exemplifies this fact more than a tour of places such as Berlin and Warsaw. From the birth of modern European states in the 19th century, to the confronting realities of the Second World War, these are cities whose recent backgrounds are as complex as they are fascinating.

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.

From rolling vineyards to grand historic structures, magic waterscapes to endlessly engaging vistas, Portugal’s charm will dance into your consciousness, seducing you slowly without you realizing it. However, by the time you’ve fully explored the Douro’s wondrous valleys and friendly village communities, you’ll find yourself completely and hopelessly in love.

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.

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 82 feet, 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 holiday plans.

General Provisions 10.1 We may only waive a right or remedy created under these Conditions in writing. Our delay in exercising a right or remedy does not constitute a waiver of that right or remedy, nor does any waiver by Us (either wholly or in part) operate as a subsequent waiver of the same or any other right. 10.2 Governing Law/Jurisdiction; Dispute Resolution; Waiver of Jury Trial. All disputes arising under or in any way related to this Contract, including the enforceability and interpretation of this Contract (each, a “Dispute”), shall be governed by the laws of the State of Nevada, without giving effect to its conflicts of laws rules or principles. Any Dispute shall be submitted for binding arbitration under the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association in an arbitration conducted in Las Vegas, Nevada USA. The Dispute will be resolved by a single arbitrator selected by the American Arbitration Association. There will be judicial review of the arbitrator’s decision if either side can show plain error in the application of the law or be able to show an abuse of discretion with respect to factual findings. The parties waive the right to rely upon any state or federal law or statute which creates an exception to enforcement of the requirement that all Disputes be resolved pursuant to arbitration as set forth in this paragraph.

Guest agrees that this section shall not be severable under any circumstances from the arbitration clause set forth in paragraph 10.2 above, and if for any reason this class action waiver is unenforceable as to any particular claim, then and only then such claim shall not be subject to arbitration. 10.4 Any term which is, by its nature, intended to survive termination of the Contract survives termination. 10.5 In these Conditions, unless the context otherwise indicates a contrary intention: (a) headings are for convenience only and do not affect interpretation; (b) singular includes the plural and vice versa; (c) a reference to a party includes its successors, permitted assigns, administrators and substitutes; (d) where a word or phrase is defined, its other grammatical forms have the corresponding meaning; (e) the word ‘include’ in any form is not a word of limitation; (f) no rules of construction apply to Our disadvantage on the basis that these Conditions or the Contract were prepared by Us; (g) a reference to a natural person includes their personal representatives; and (h) a reference to a body (including institute, association or authority) which ceases to exist or whose powers or functions are transferred to another body is a reference to the body which replaces it or which substantially succeeds to its powers or functions. 10.6 The Tour/journey Brochure and these Conditions are valid for Tour/journey Departure Dates during the Validity Period unless otherwise indicated in Your Itinerary, and supersedes all previous brochures. 10.7 Recovery Fund for Consumers CALIFORNIA.
