Luxury river cruising through Europe

Board a Scenic Space-Ship for a European river cruise and enjoy an all-inclusive luxury experience that inspires you, and fires your senses.

There are so many wonderful moments waiting to be uncovered in this beautiful and historically rich continent, and Scenic’s handcrafted journeys were designed to do exactly that.

Europe’s majestic waterways span a varied and spectacular region with so much to offer - from timeless villages that preserve traditions most other regions have lost, to spectacular cities and architectural masterworks.

From rivers that flow through some of the world’s most serene settings to dramatic snow-covered peaks that take your breath away.

We’ll take you to all the must-see highlights, but you’ll also discover the hidden gems of Europe and experience moments that recreate the wonder of years past.

It begins the instant we transport you from the airport to your luxury floating hotel. Your butler opens your suite door to luxury, world-class dining and unlimited beverages. And that’s even before you embark on your unforgettable voyage.

On a Europe river cruise with Scenic, there may be a moment of wonder just around the next bend.

Discovering countless treasures

The entire continent is at your feet. Cruising Europe’s waterways will lead you from one magical moment to another - through narrow gorges carved out by the Danube, to the incomparable Balkan Mountains.

Wherever you find yourself, you’re escorted through your exploration of all Europe’s greatest marvels. Not only will you benefit from the expertise of local guides, all Scenic Freechoice, Scenic Enrich and Scenic Sundowners activities are fully escorted. In addition, your Scenic Tailormade device gives you the best choices of destinations to explore. So you can make every day of your cruise as different and astonishing as the last.

Scenic Freechoice is a collection of exciting escorted activities for you to choose from at a pace that suits you. Which narrow cobblestone path will you choose to follow? Will you walk beneath a 1,000-year-old stone arch or choose to sample delicacies in the market square?

With Scenic Freechoice, the option is yours, and dependant on your own interests and preferences. Enjoy.


Scenic Enrich experiences provide enriching moments that are completely inaccessible to the ordinary traveller. Climb to the top of a 900 year old German castle, after a personal tour of its ramparts, or be treated to a medieval themed dinner as jugglers and minstrels perform for your pleasure. Dine with a local family or listen in wonder as a master winemaker shares the secrets of their family vineyard.

Whatever Enrich experience awaits you, you can look forward to an exclusive and enthralling event that you’ll cherish for years to come.


Scenic Sundowners are bespoke cocktail events for Scenic guests to toast the day’s end in remarkable locations across Europe.

What could be better than ending a remarkable day by sharing your experiences with friends against a truly idyllic backdrop? That certainly calls for a toast.


Our Scenic Tailormade device guides you through your own personal excursion on shore, and offers absorbing commentary on major points of interest while you’re on board. Map out the perfect route for a fanatical foodie’s walk, or spend an afternoon exploring ancient architectural treasures.

Either way, you’ll find Scenic Tailormade an invaluable tool, and the best guide you could hope to have.


A gracious floating hotel

Cruising on a Scenic Space-Ship is, quite simply, the indulgence of a lifetime. And our two next generation Scenic Space-Ships - Scenic Jasper and Scenic Opal - confirm our commitment to providing experiences that are beyond exceptional.

From the moment you step on board you’ll be spoilt for choice, and you can look forward to a wide array of luxuries designed to enhance the wonder you’ll encounter off the ship, from our bubbling vitality pool, to suites that the largest of any river cruise ship anywhere.

We set the benchmark for the standard of suites on board, the most spacious on any European vessel. Technology meets innovation to provide your Scenic Sun Lounge, giving you a private balcony at the touch of a button.

Luxury, space and views - they're all included.


Take a look at our new Scenic Space-Ships:

Cruising the Danube is a complete change of pace. In fact, at one point, as Budapest’s Hungarian Parliament rose to greet us out of the morning mist, time actually stood still, just long enough for me to catch my breath.

A magical day on board

This morning you awake more rested than you’ve felt in years, wrapped snuggly in lavish Egyptian cotton linen.Your queen-size Scenic Slumber Bed has provided you with just the sleep you needed, and you find yourself eager to embrace new adventures and experiences. At the touch of a button you request your personal butler to pour your morning coffee, freshly brewed, while you take in the glorious vista. Welcome to another wonderful day.

Suddenly, the Scenic Tailormade device on the table buzzes, and informs you that you’re outside the delightful Austrian town of Melk. It describes in vivid detail the charming scene unfolding before you. In fact, it’s almost as if you’re in a living museum, and the picturesque scene on the bank opposite is a real life exhibit.
