Who should do a Europe river cruise?

Australians have a great sense of adventure, curiosity and passion, which are just a few of the key qualities that many of our river cruise guests share. 
You’ll meet a range of like-minded people on board a Scenic cruise; those who are interested in discovering the many artistic, historical, culinary and cultural aspects of our destinations. They enjoy the laid-back pace of river cruising and its appreciation for individual choice and exploration.

A mix of independent travellers, couples and small groups, they are looking for diverse, culturally enriching experiences, and like to take their time exploring each layer of the countries we visit, rather than rushing through a busy itinerary. An appreciation for the finer things in life – great food, music, knowledge and a thirst for new experiences – drives their journey.

With a balance of both working and retired guests, luxury and great service is a must, along with a reassurance that everything is all inclusive, including tipping and gratuities.

You’ll enjoy sharing your experiences with fellow open-minded travellers who appreciate similar things in life, meaning there will be plenty of opportunities to forge new friendships during each cruise.

Going Solo

It's not just couples and groups who seek out a river cruise experience. Solo travellers are choosing the delights of a river cruise too.

Offering comfort, peace of mind and the chance to meet like-minded people, river cruising is ideal for those travelling on their own. As a solo traveller, you will have the flexibility to join in Scenic Freechoice and Scenic Enrich activities, or if solitude is more what you crave, simply kick back and relax on board in 5-star luxury. 

Our ships along the Rhine, Main, Danube and Moselle rivers, as well as those traversing the waterways of Bordeaux and the South of France, all offer dedicated single balcony suites, complete with an innovative Scenic Sun Lounge. Consider it your own private oasis.
