Thanks to a very helpful employee of ROL

20 Oct 2018

I was called initially to cancel a holiday booked for Nov. 2019 which was to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. We were going to Myanmar which had long been a dream for us. On hearing our disappointment, Shannon Crick, who called us pulled out all the stops to find an alternative which she did. We were unable to have the same dates, but are very pleased to be going. Not so happy about additional costs, but we have accepted this. Well done to Shannon

Professional and friendly the perfect mix

Overview


Cruising the inimitable Rhône from Beaujolais to the Côte d'Azur over 13 immersive days, encounter historic sites and fine food, succumbing to the wonders of southern France. Beginning in the heart of Beaujolais, explore Beaune and its 14th-century almshouses, or visit the Château de Savigny-lès-Beaune to see its impressive collection of motorcycles, race cars, and fighter planes. Visit the Bresse Museum of Macon, go truffle-hunting with the farmers of Tournus, or opt for a Scenic Culinaire cookery class as your ship drifts steadily downstream. Arriving at the culinary capital of Lyon, traverse its secret passageways and marvel at its multitude of heritage sites, some of which date back to the 4th century. Perfect the art of French cuisine at Paul Bocuse’s renowned cookery school, or enjoy a leisurely cycle ride through the Botanical Gardens. By evening, experience the extravaganza of a French can-can as part of Scenic Rouge, an extraordinary Scenic Enrich experience that promises to be one of the most unforgettable moments from your time in the South of France. From Lyon, enjoy an afternoon’s aperitif at Tournon Castle, sample the fine wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and take your place in Avignon’s Pope’s Palace for an evening of classical music – an unforgettable encounter, exclusive to Scenic Enrich.

The Ship


Sailing the beautiful waterways of France and rebuilt for the 2017 season with brand new features such as Scenic Culinaire and two new one-bedroom Royal Owner's Suites. Every Scenic French river cruise begins aboard one of the company’s custom-built Space-Ships the Scenic Sapphire or Diamond, so named for their spacious guest cabins, dining, and entertaining areas. Each of these four-deck Scenic Space-Ships includes numerous dining and sightseeing areas, as well as a lounge and bar area that offers panoramic views. Additionally, guests can soak up the rays at the top-deck swimming pool or retreat to the wellness center, which is equipped with a fitness area, beauty salon, and massage rooms. These ships are also noteworthy for their luxury suites, which are outfitted with sun lounges, 32-inch high-definition TVs, and complimentary wireless internet access. Bolstering our exquisite French fleet upon their re-launch, Scenic Sapphire and Diamond will be completely rebuilt to reflect the same level of luxury offered by our newest Scenic Space-Ships. We’ve considered everything when redesigning these much-loved vessels, seeking out the very finest materials and most innovative technologies to ensure these Space-Ships afford the very best travel experience on the majestic waterways of France. One of the main highlights of these updated vessels however, is the all-new one-bedroom Royal Owner’s Suites. A first for the Scenic Space-Ship fleet, these huge 47 square meter suites are the biggest ever offered on European waters, and boast a vast living space, perfectly proportioned bedroom, en-suite bathroom and full-length balcony — not to mention all of the exquisite luxuries for which we are so regularly applauded. Complete with all of the opulent finishing touches for which Scenic is universally celebrated, Scenic Sapphire and Diamond will be transformed upon emerging from the shipyard ahead of the 2017 season. As well as opulent design touches, each vessel will also receive a host of new features and amenities, including a vitality pool, gym, spa and, for the first time ever, a private cooking area where guests can participate in our new cookery courses, Scenic Culinaire. Couple these sumptuous design changes with our time-tested and truly exceptional service, and a river cruise aboard Scenic Sapphire and Diamond promises the journey of a lifetime. The vessels will cruise a selection of French rivers in 2017, including the Seine, Rhône and Garonne, transporting guests in complete comfort and elegance on these enchanting waterways.
