On board your luxurious Scenic Space-Ship, you will have access to a range of truly all-inclusive health and wellness amenities. 

Our state-of-the-art gym offers daily scheduled activities tailored to suit various fitness levels. Try your hand at relaxing yoga, invigorating Sun Salutations, or even the Five Tibetan Rites – a remarkable set of exercises believed to reverse the effects of aging. For some extra indulgence, you can also choose to add a massage, hair and skin treatments at our spa and salon to your cruise experience^. 

From the most relaxed to the most active and everything in between, every itinerary takes into account your specific wellness needs so that you have complete control over customising your well-being, your way. 

Salt Therapy Lounge

Improve your respiratory health

Scenic is the first and only river cruise company to feature the therapeutic and healing Salt Therapy Lounge* on board its Scenic Space-Ships cruising Europe’s Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, the Bordeaux waterways and the Rhône and Saône rivers. Salt therapy is a form of alternative treatment inspired by the medieval times, when the air inside salt caves was used to alleviate and cure respiratory illnesses.

A Salt Therapy Lounge mimics the environment of a salt cave through a humidity and temperature-controlled room, handcrafted from salt bricks to create a micro-climate. The negatively charged salt ions bear a high kinetic energy that increases the efficacy of healing, improves respiration and skin conditions and boosts the immune system. Step in, relax and let the healing begin.

State-of-the-art gym 

Effortlessly meet your fitness goals on your holiday

On board your luxurious Scenic Space-Ship, you will have access to a range of health and wellness amenities in the dedicated Wellness Area.

Whether you like to bend your body to the contemplative flow of yoga or prefer the intense workout of a rowing machine, on board your Scenic Space-Ship, you are sure to find something to suit your well-being style. Our state-of-the-art gym offers daily scheduled activities with the wellbeing coach, tailored to suit various fitness levels. Try your hand at a morning meditation class, invigorating Sun Salutations, or even the Five Tibetan Rites – a remarkable set of exercises believed to reverse the effects of aging.

On board spa and salon

Effortlessly meet your fitness goals on your holiday
Sometimes well-being involves pampering your mind and body with some extra love. Scenic’s on board spas are an oasis of comfort and relaxation. Guests can choose to treat themselves to a soul-soothing massage^ or pamper their tresses at the hair salon^ for a small additional charge. With a range of therapies including aroma oil, Burmese and Thai massage, facial treatments, foot reflexology, nail services, and hair styling delivered by expert therapists, you’ll find yourself spending several tranquil hours here.

Complimentary e-bikes

Explore on your own without breaking a sweat
Scenic makes it easy to infuse a dose of active exploration without straining your muscles. Our complimentary on board e-bikes* – electronically assisted bicycles – allow you to explore under your own steam or let the bike do the hard work for you. They are a fast, fun and eco-friendly way to get around. With very little effort, you can reach speeds of up to 30km/hour. Join city cycling tours or explore further afield with guided bike excursions. You could also chart your own course by using Scenic Tailormade and set out on some self-guided exploration.

Range of Scenic Freechoice activities

Enjoy the freedom to customise your exploration
With each new destination offering a wide range of fascinating sights and experiences, you can plan to use your precious time to do exactly what you want. The Scenic Freechoice program recognises that each guest is unique and hence caters to three different paces each day – active, moderate and relaxed. You could be tasting fine German beer one day, hiking through the town of Buda the next, relaxing in an ancient Turkish bath one day, sipping local wine the next. It’s your cruise holiday your way.

Food for every diet

Customise your meals as per your preference

We understand that high quality food is an important part of your relaxing cruise holiday, and more importantly, your well-being. If you like to watch what you eat for health or medical reasons, you’ll feel right at home on a Scenic Space-Ship. Our on board chefs take special care to prepare meals based on guests’ dietary preferences and will customise your dish any way you want. 

We also cater for special dietary requirements, from shellfish allergies (or anything else), lactose intolerance, celiac disease, vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, or simply your preference for certain foods.

Ergonomically designed beds

Rest and revitalise in premium comfort
Scenic understands that one of the most critical contributors to a healthy mind and body is a good night’s sleep. We spent months researching and testing the finest beds and looking at all the world’s leading brands before making our final selection. Our ergonomic slumber beds provide 7-zone core comfort with high readjustment strength for excellent body and anatomical support, ensuring a blissful night’s sleep. 
There is highly sensitive foam on top, and a circulating AIR Wave® band for optimum ventilation. You can also pick a pillow of your choice from the pillow menu that offers everything from anti-aging and non-allergy to neck supporting and memory foam. Complemented by German-made light premium down duvet and 400 thread-count bed linen made out of the finest long staple cotton, it’ll be the best sleep you’ve ever had.

Our commitment to your health and wellness

At Scenic, we understand the importance of maintaining your health and wellness whilst travelling. Our team is working closely with the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) and government health agencies to implement a full range of health and wellness measures for the resumption of our river cruise operations.
