Wanting to take a holiday but worried about being jet-lagged or seasick? Say no more. Below are the best reasons why you should consider a Europe River Cruise with Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours.

All-inclusive, nothing to pay

From the moment you step on board your luxurious Scenic Space-Ship you won’t need to spend a thing*. Whether on board or during shore excursions, it’s all taken care of.

Majority of suites on board have balconies

Our ships feature the largest and most luxurious suites on the rivers, with no inside cabins – everyone has a view. Our all-inclusive balcony suites also feature innovative technology, transforming each balcony to a Sun Lounge at the touch of a button, allowing you to enjoy the luxury of extra space as well as the unfolding landscape.

All beverages complimentary

Enjoy your favourite cocktail on the Sun Deck or the finest red wine at dinner. With our impressive selection of complimentary premium beverages, including your in-suite mini-bar – the choice is yours, all day, every day.

Fresh food and fancy cocktails, all inclusive in the price.

All meals complimentary across a range of dining options

From café-style snacks to our fine dining degustation menu, there’s gourmet fare for every taste. Drawing inspiration from the regions we travel through, all our food is seasonal and freshly prepared.

Handcrafted and comprehensive range of activities and experiences

Our onshore exclusive Scenic Enrich experiences take you behind the scenes to enjoy private access and special moments not available to the ordinary traveller, while our Scenic Freechoice activities offer everything from history to culture and cuisine to nature. There’s something for everyone to discover, and it can be done at your own pace. Absolutely everything is included, even entrance fees, tipping and gratuities.

Dock in the heart of towns and villages

You simply walk off the ship right into the centre of the beautiful towns and villages along our routes. Less commuting, more exploring.

Small numbers of guests on board

By keeping numbers small we can provide you with an intimate, exclusive experience. Our ships in Europe even have a 3:1 staff ratio.

Explore Europe with no planes or trains.

Butler service

Our butlers are experts at ensuring every need is taken care of. From the first warm greeting to remembering your preferences, our butlers are always on hand. They won’t be happy unless you are.

Local guides

Thanks to their inside knowledge, our local guides ensure you’ll get to experience both the highlights and hidden gems of your destination.

No seasickness

The combination of cruising gentle river routes and the world-class engineering of our fleet of ships ensures nothing but smooth sailing.
