One of the best things about cruising the Douro with Scenic is the highly trained crew at your service. With a nearly 1:2 staff-to-guest ratio, you’re assured of a most intimate cruising experience. Your cruise director has been handpicked to be your personal historian, art connoisseur, and storyteller, rolled into one. Moreover, the expert local guides will help you experience the authentic Portuguese way of life. You will not only see the highlights of a place but also discover the hidden gems known only to the natives along with the best local food, entertainment and cultural attractions.
For those wishing to explore on their own, the exclusive Scenic Tailormade App will be your faithful assistant. It will serve as your audio guide system, providing you with self-guided city tours with point to point navigation, maps, commentary and offline navigation. It will also keep you posted about the daily cruise program, and the Scenic Freechoice and Scenic Enrich excursions.
To take care of all your little needs, we offer you the services of our expert butlers. From in-suite breakfast to nightly turndown, our butlers are there to make your Scenic journey extra special. Leave it to them to arrange theatre tickets, limousine service, shore arrangements, salon appointments or even take care of your laundry, for a truly relaxing Douro River cruise experience.
