Scenic Culinaire

Exclusive and innovative, our France river cruise ships feature their own on board cooking schools.
One of the most exciting elements on board Scenic Sapphire and Scenic Diamond is our exclusive Scenic Culinaire cooking experience. Guests will now be able to immerse themselves in the culinary wonders of the Rhône and Bordeaux regions onshore and on board.

France is the epicentre of cuisine and fine dining and Scenic Culinaire will allow our guests to participate in an on board cooking class, taught by experts, featuring the finest local ingredients.

We've even included a live camera and screen so that you won't miss a thing as it's being cooked. And of course the best bit will be the tastings at the conclusion of each class.
