Why Scenic?

Why choose Scenic?

Experts in luxury river cruising and escorted tours

See the world your way on-board a 5-star Scenic Space-Ship, boasting some of the largest suites on Europe’s waters. Luxury-focussed innovation combined with our all-inclusive promise and attention to detail ensures we’re setting the trend for river cruising, with everything you’d expect to pay for in a world-class hotel, included in the price.

Complimentary drinks all day every day and fine-dining in a choice of on-board restaurants help make celebratory occasions more special, while allowing you to further indulge in authentic cuisine with produce sourced locally from the cities and towns that forge your path. Make the most of our on-board facilities as your private butler caters to your every need. From a complimentary laundry concierge, to a light lunch brought straight to your Sun Lounge. Not forgetting, your free in-suite mini bar, replenished daily.  

Enrich experiences offer exclusive, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to delve into local history and culture, as you dine in palatial settings or discover hidden gems that you may not have found without the guidance of an expert. Freechoice excursions, carefully selected by our Journey Designers, encourage you to do as much or as little as you please, so you can explore beauty spots and landmarks at a pace that suits you. Our GPS-fitted E-Bikes allow you to discover independently off the beaten track, while group hikes help to acquaint more active explorers with areas of outstanding natural beauty in a different way.  

Taking you on journeys down Europe’s most iconic waterways, visit an eclectic mix of cities, from bohemian Amsterdam and Budapest, to ancient Cologne and imperial Vienna, or venture further afield to the majestic waters of Southeast Asia, opening up the Mekong and the Irrawaddy for you to explore Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.

Our all-inclusive promise means flights, transfers and on-board tipping is included, so there’s no need to even bring your wallet, all you have to do is relax and enjoy your trip-of-a-lifetime.

Talk About Their Experiences On Board


Without exception staff were superb and all the memorable moments of our trip flowed from their attitude. From the minute we stepped aboard to our departure, nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel welcome and special.

Mrs Davis

Gems of the Seine

Throughout the duration of the cruise we received the highest standard of food service, comfort, organisation and entertainment. We have never taken a cruise before and would never consider any other company than Scenic if we were to have another one.

Mr Headley

Jewels of Europe

The all-inclusive aspect of the cruise means that everything is paid for before you go and you do not have to worry about signing chits and checking invoices on board.

Mr Fidler

Gems of the Danube

All excursions were well paced and organised – we felt like we were in safe hands. This, along with the fact everything was included, left us free to relax and enjoy our holiday.

Mr Laing

Romantic Rhine & Moselle

We could not believe the large choice of food available at breakfast, lunch and dinner and the choice of beers, wine, teas and coffee which other companies class as extras.

Mrs Harper 

Jewels of Europe

Not only did I find the ship wonderfully comfortable and well appointed, but every possible amenity was provided to ensure a totally luxurious experience.
