Pompeii

The ancient Roman town of Pompeii is one of the world’s most significant historical sites. The life in the town was completely destroyed when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79AD, but many of the structures were beautifully preserved – giving us a unique insight into ancient life.

On day six of this cruise, take a tour through Pompeii and explore ancient life, set in stone.  

Traditional Milos

The waters and cliffs of Milos, Greece
On day 10 of this 15-day cruise, you’ll be welcomed to the beautiful Greek island of Milos. Whilst here, you’ll enjoy the Scenic Enrich experience – a lively performance of traditional Greek music and dance. The powerful dance performances are as impressive as they are culturally significant to the Greek people.

Ultimate Caribbean & Central American Treasures

For many visiting the Caribbean, the temptation may be to lay out the beach towel and soak up the sun on the sands of the paradise islands visited. However, this would miss the incredible array of culture and historical intrigue on offer in this delightful part of the world.

Visiting a series of national parks as well as the enigmatic island of Cuba, the Ultimate Caribbean and Central American Treasures itinerary combines natural wonder with the heady passion of The Americas.

Castillo del Morro

Castillo del Morro
In the enigmatic Cuban capital of Havana, we offer two Scenic Enrich experiences. The second of which is one of our favourite Scenic Eclipse options, the firing of the cannon at Castillo del Morro. The historic fortress entrance to Havana, Castillo del Morro is one of the first things you’ll witness as you arrive on the island, and the firing of the cannon is a much-loved tradition in these parts.

Utria National Natural Park
