Cruise Europe's Waterways and Reignite Your Love to Travel

It’s time to embrace your love to travel in 2022 and 2023. To reconnect with the history and culture of Europe once again, by planning and booking your 5-star truly all-inclusive luxury river cruise with Scenic. 
At Scenic, we love to travel – and we know that you do too. We have all patiently waited for the waterways of the world to open up to us once more and now that time has arrived. 
Visiting destinations such as Europe’s historic towns and cities, that perhaps we all once took a little for granted, is now a coveted experience. We deeply feel a renewed enthusiasm to explore beyond our own, familiar surroundings. Our wonder and yearning curiosity about the multi-cultural cities of Europe and its centuries’-old traditions is more vivid than it has ever been before.  
As you embark on a 5-star luxury Europe river cruise with Scenic, you can be assured of our commitment to your comfort, safety and wellness, as well as our team’s unrivalled standards of excellence. You’ll find it’s more than a 5-star river cruise, it’s truly all-inclusive luxury in a class of its own. Our philosophy means that we take care of absolutely everything on your behalf, leaving you to unwind and put your trust in us, as you reconnect with loved ones and discover new horizons.  
Now is the time to turn your long-held dreams of a magnificent European journey into reality by planning and securing your suite on a 5-star, small-ship luxury Scenic Space-Ship, with capacity for only up to 163 guests. 
Explore the baroque old towns of Austria, or Cologne’s iconic cathedral and Christmas markets in Germany, smelling the scent of chestnuts roasting in the air and sipping mulled wine. Enjoy exclusive performances and concerts in medieval castles, after hours; or learn the art of making award-winning wines in the vineyards of France, or experience a guided tour viewing one of the world’s most significant art collections at the Hermitage in St Petersburg. 

Experience Enriching Moments 

It’s time to experience the feeling of connection once again and to tap into your innate sense of curiosity. In opening our hearts and minds to new cultures, cuisines, landscapes and wildlife, we come away with not only a richer understanding of the destinations that we visit, but a deeper knowing of our own selves too. 

One of the most alluring elements of a visit to Europe is being able to step back in time through centuries when visiting medieval castles, cathedrals and sites of significance. Gain perspective again as you learn about the royalty, culinary traditions, religious beliefs, architecture and stories that have been a part of European life for millennia. 
Scenic’s Cruise Directors on our Europe River Cruises are there to ensure that you make the most of your immersion into each exciting place that you visit. Working with local guides, you’ll be seamlessly escorted to the very best locations in each destination. With Scenic, it’s more than standard excursions to see the sights – it’s captivating visits to castles, galleries and museums after-hours being guided by cultural experts during thoughtfully curated Scenic Enrich exclusive experiences. The Scenic Tailormade App is accessible anytime, providing informative river commentary as you cruise past interesting landmarks and towns and accessible onshore for independent exploration of towns. 
You can also set your own pace and tailor your focus to those topics that most interest you, by selecting from our broad range of Scenic Freechoice activities. You can take an e-bike ride through the vineyards of France and discover the local delicacy of foie gras during a farm visit in Bergerac. Or learn more about the famous Delftware, hand-painted blue and white pottery, by visiting a pottery factory and museum in Delft, The Netherlands. 

Be Pampered in Luxury 

It’s time to look forward to once again being pampered and relaxing in spacious and luxuriously appointed surrounds. Your Butler will be there to assist you from the moment you step on board your 5-star Space-Ship, quickly becoming familiar with your preferences. They’ll stock your in-suite mini-bar daily with your favourite premium beverages, which are all included of course, book you into your luxurious spa treatment+ or serve you afternoon tea on your private Scenic Sun Lounge that lets the fresh air gently drift in at the touch of a button. 
In your luxurious suite, take the time for rest and recline on our signature queen-sized Scenic Slumber Beds.  Choose from our extensive pillow menu to personalise your comfort throughout your stay. You can expect only the finest amenities and take comfort that absolutely everything is taken care of for you.

Feel Rejuvenated and Relaxed

The importance of self-care has perhaps never been more apparent than in these times – and that extends to your time away from home too. During your Europe river cruise, you’ll be able to achieve continuity of your important wellbeing rituals, as well as have the chance to expand your mind by trying new practices and experiences too. 
Maintain your physical fitness by exploring on one of our e-bikes, suitable for beginners and experienced cyclists alike. You can adjust the mode of the bike and it does all the hard work for you if you desire. Seeing Europe’s town squares and cobblestone lanes on two wheels are memorable experiences, as you discover hidden treasures around every turn and have the chance to interact with locals, or stop for that perfect photo when a breathtaking view catches your eye. 
You might like to start your day on board with a yoga class on the Sun Deck, guided by a wellness coach as the sun rises to greet you, or use the state-of-the-art gym facilities. Relieve tired muscles after a day of exploration by indulging in a soothing massage+. 
You’ll be able to truly rejuvenate and restore your senses with unlimited access to our unique Salt Therapy Lounge^, the only river cruise vessel to include a therapeutic zone of this kind.
