Scenic Route

WELCOME

We are not about rushing you from one place to the next. Scenic honours the beauty of time. We want you to take the scenic route. To wend slowly and appreciate what's around you; the smells, sounds and views that you get when you take the back roads.

– Tracing the intricate pattern of Europe's waterways, floating past picture postcard scenery and stopping at historic towns and villages to experience once in a lifetime moments. This is more than a river cruise, this is a journey you'll never forget.°

THE WONDERS OF RIVER CRUISING

Sail the great rivers of the world: only the spectacular ever-changing scenery reminds you that you're on a ship, and not in a five-star hotel.

River cruising

Rivers have been used for transporting people and goods for thousands of years, that’s why there’s so much history and culture surrounding them. A river cruise holiday down any one of the world’s waterways can be an inspiring way to explore the nearby cities, towns, villages and never-ending scenery. Sit back and let the sights come to you, the rest is taken care of.

European river cruising

Experience the timeless elegance, diverse cultures and fairy-tale landscapes of Europe along the Rhine, Moselle and Danube rivers. Embark on a journey through the ages and uncover everything from Roman ruins to contemporary cities while basking in the luxury of your own floating hotel.

French river cruising

From the wine region of Burgundy where the Saône and Rhône rivers cut a beguiling path, to the Garonne and Dordogne in the heart of Bordeaux and the famous Seine in Northern France; the waterways of France are intertwined with history, gastronomy, culture and art.

Portugal river cruising

The city of Porto stands at the mouth of Portugal’s Douro River. It’s the first of many UNESCO World Heritage Sites that nestles the sun-drenched waterway across the breadth of the country to the border of Spain. Foodies and wine lovers are in for a treat when sailing the Golden Valley.

Asian river cruising

Explore a tapestry of culture and colour as you sail the mighty Mekong River through enchanting Southeast Asia. Visit Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Laos and indulge in the pleasures of our 34-One bedroom Suit Scenic Spirit ship – the most spacious vessel on these spirited waters.

Russian river cruising

A river cruise is the perfect way to explore Russia’s grand cities and vast countryside. A raised glass of vodka ensures a warm welcome, whether you’re deep in the heart of St. Petersburg or bound for the 'Golden Ring of Cities' where a rich patchwork of history is waiting to be uncovered.
