A world of enriching and enlightening discoveries awaits you. From the moment you step on board a Scenic Space-Ship, you’ll feel at home, taken care of by your butler and the on board crew.
You’ll find it’s more than unpacking just once, it’s settling into spacious and beautifully designed suites. With up to five dining venues and premium beverages all day, everyday, it’s more than great food and wine – it’s a gourmet selection of cuisines to suit all tastes.
Size really does matter when talking about the historic and sometimes narrow water passageways of Europe and how to best navigate them. The fleet of Scenic Space-Ships provide guests on board with ample space and the freedom to roam. A Scenic Space-Ship is more than a standard river vessel – it’s a custom-built luxury ship, meticulously designed to offer maximum space and comfort with only up to 163 guests.
Which river should you explore with Scenic?
The romantic Rhine, Main, Upper Danube & Moselle Rivers is often the first river cruise destination.
Romance is alive and well in this region. Expect to explore magnificent castles, historic towns and verdant vineyards.
You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a fairy-tale.
The spectacular Seine River of Northern France has long been an inspiration to masters such as Monet and Matisse. Sail from Paris on the award-winning Scenic Gem to Normandy. The culinary waterways of Bordeaux & Southern France are ideal for lovers of food and wine, art and history. The hidden gems of Portugal’s Douro River are peppered with World Heritage-listed Sites. If you’re looking for an all-inclusive luxury cruise with only 96 guests, a cruise on Portugal’s ‘river of gold’ is perfect.
The Scenic Difference is present in every element of a truly all-inclusive luxury river cruise. On board Scenic Space-Ships, you can expect impeccable service, exclusive moments, world-class dining and a river cruise that is personalised to meet your needs. You’ll find it’s more than unpacking just once, it’s the ease of feeling at home and settling into some of the most spacious and luxurious suites cruising Europe’s rivers.
With Scenic, it’s more than a five-star river cruise. It’s truly all-inclusive luxury in a class of its own.
What makes a Scenic Space-Ship experience so special?
Space to yourself
With only up to 163 guests on board and a variety of dining, wellness and relaxation areas, it’s easy to find a quiet place to relax and indulge on a Space-Ship. There is a feeling of boundless space and many public spaces where guests have plenty of room to take in the views. The Sun Deck is an expansive rooftop area. The spacious Panorama Lounge & Bar is the heart of the ships and there are multiple spaces for casual or fine dining.
It’s more than good food and wine with Scenic, it’s your choice of up to five dining venues with a dedicated team creating dishes inspired by the regional cuisines of the countries you sail through.
Included in Balcony Suites and above, your Scenic Sun Lounge will allow you to truly appreciate the beautiful landscape and enjoy the fresh air, in private while your butler tops-up your mini-bar. At the touch of a button, the glass smoothly glides down to convert the area into your exclusive Scenic Sun Lounge. This special suite sanctuary is perfect to dine in, read or to relax alfresco.
It’s more than a five-star river cruise, it’s inclusive of a fully stocked mini-bar replenished daily, butler service and in-suite dining.
Your Space-Ship will meander along the waterways often close to shore. The ships are also able to dock in the heart of towns, so you have more time to explore onshore on foot or on one of the complimentary e-bikes. There are many opportunities to personalise your cruise with included Scenic Freechoice activities and special Scenic Enrich experiences.
It’s more than a visit to a European town, it’s a cultural exploration of some of Europe’s oldest town squares, villages and cities and discovering the heritage, cuisine and customs that have been cherished for centuries.
Wellbeing and healthy living
When you want a little therapeutic ‘me time’ to reflect on your journey highlights, you can head to the Salt Therapy Lounge. Scenic is the first and only river cruise company to feature a salt therapy room on a selection of its Space-Ships, utilising practices developed in medieval times to harness the health properties of salt.
With Scenic, it’s more than healthy choices – it’s wellness that nourishes mind, body and soul.
From the moment you step on board your luxurious Scenic Space-Ship you won’t need to spend a thing (unless you’re after a hair appointment, massage or vintage wines, Champagnes and spirits). Whether on board or during shore excursions, it’s all taken care of.
It’s more than all-inclusive, Scenic is truly all-inclusive luxury in a class of its own.
Commitment to Health & Safety
