National Geographic Expeditions

Our exclusive National Geographic river cruises combine Scenic's all-inclusive luxury experiences, with National Geographic's 130-year legacy of science, conservation, and exploration, to create memories that will last a lifetime.
The world is a limitless ocean of wonders that we have only scratched the surface of. Scenic’s shared passion for the infinite world, curiosity about its mysterious past, fascination for its vibrant inhabitants and desire to preserve its future has led to its partnership with National Geographic to offer unique river cruise expeditions that explore the far corners of the world. We are delighted to align ourselves with an organisation for which the pursuit of wonder through travel is as important as it is to us.

Aboard each Scenic river cruise expedition along Europe’s waterways and Myanmar’s Irrawaddy River, a National Geographic Expert will join guests to share their knowledge and insights, and enrich the experience through fascinating presentations and informal discussions. Our European river cruising will also be joined by a National Geographic Photographer, who will offer photography tips on technique and artistry.

Each expedition offers guests National Geographic’s unique access, knowledge and the ability to give back. From these river cruises, a portion of the profits will be donated to the National Geographic Society, which supports researchers and experts engaged in protecting and preserving the planet and its various species and populations.
