No Fly River Cruises

Enjoy a comfortable and relaxed transfer to your ship with Eurostar

View Itineraries

Scenic's signature 5-star service commences long before you board our ships. For that reason, we've organised alternative travel arrangements, on selected itineraries, for those who would prefer not to fly.
Your comfort and well-being is of utmost priority to us and we understand that there may be many reasons you might not want to fly to your embarkation destination. Avoid the stresses that flying may pose, from endless queues at check-in, only to find out your luggage exceeds the weight restrictions, to security checks which require serious fore-thought when it comes to preparing your hand luggage. All these problems are a thing of the past, when you travel by rail with Eurostar.

Arrive relaxed and ready to board your 5-star Scenic Space-Ship, after enjoying a picturesque journey in absolute luxury. Cut through countryside you’d never imagined you could, witnessing picturesque farmland, beautiful floral displays and small towns and villages boasting their own quirky personalities.

Relax in your plush, reclining seat, complete with power socket, and settle in to enjoy drinks and snacks from the buffet bar, as well as on board entertainment and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Departing from London’s St. Pancras station, and available across nine of our wonderful itineraries across France and the Netherlands, those travelling on the Romantic Rhine & Moselle, Rhine Highlights and Dutch Sights & Belgian Delights itineraries will travel to Brussels, before transferring to Amsterdam to meet the ship.

Guests travelling on Idyllic Rhône, Normandy & Gems of the Seine, South of France, Bordeaux Affair and Beautiful Bordeaux will arrive in Paris to be transferred to the appropriate port destination.

Any itineraries which require a transfer have been meticulously organised to ensure your transition is a seamless one.

All connecting rail journeys have been arranged in advance, and you will travel in First Class as standard. To check in, you’ll need your ticket and passport, but there’s no need to check in your luggage. With 45 minutes advised as the appropriate time to arrive before departure, we would recommend those who require assistance to allow an extra 30 minutes on top of check-in time.

Whether you’ve always struggled with the idea of flying, or you’re just eager to try something new, a no-fly river cruise is sure to promise excellent scenery, unrivalled comfort and lesser restrictions that come with flying. The perfect option for the discerning traveller who would prefer to keep their feet firmly on the ground.
