The History of Scenic


In 1986, Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours was born. But it wasn’t until 2006 that Scenic started to charter ships along Europe’s historic waterways, offering Scenic guests a new way to explore the world. Two years later, with a desire to create ships tailored to Scenic guests’ needs, the brand launched its first two Scenic Space-Ships, Scenic Sapphire and Scenic Emerald. Most recently, Scenic launched Scenic Ocean Cruises, a cruise line bringing with it The World’s First Discovery Yachts™, Scenic Eclipse.

Scenic Space-Ships

Every aspect of a Scenic Space-Ship design has been considered at length. From the Port Laurent marble from Morocco to the handpicked art lining the wall, Scenic's meticulous attention to detail is visible from the moment you step on board. With a spacious Sun Deck, ample seating and a walking track, guests can unwind after an incredible day with a complimentary beverage and admire the neverending views that pass by. Elsewhere on board, guests have full access to the Wellness Centre, a gym, a hair salon and special entertainment. Complimentary Wi-Fi is also available, also e-bikes to help you get out and about while on shore and explore the destinations.


Onboard Experience

Accommodation

Finished to exceptional standards, Scenic's suites possess an air of decadence. Larger than standard river cruise cabins, each suite gives guests their own private oasis in which to relax, unwind and indulge. Each offers elegant furnishings, an HDTV, climate control and a pillow menu. A nightly turndown service, complimentary mini-bar and Wi-Fi all come as standard. Your en-suite bathroom even comes complete with L’Occitane toiletries. Balcony suites offer guests the Scenic Sun Lounge, an exclusive system that transforms your balcony into an all-weather conservatory-style space at the touch of a button.

Dining

Drawing inspiration from the areas you travel to, Scenic's chefs will freshly prepare a diverse and delicious food experience, whenever and wherever you want to dine. Crystal Dining is the main open-seating restaurant, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Guests can begin each day with a choice of buffet breakfast or cooked-to-order favourites. Lunchtime showcases a generous range of cuisines, while in the evening, seasonal and locally sourced dishes, as well as a la carte menus, are prepared by Scenic's award-winning chefs.

Ensuring you don’t miss out on any treasures along the river banks, Scenic offer guests the ability to step ashore and be treated to an abundance of unique culinary experiences. From an exclusive gala dinner and classical recital at the Pope’s prestigious Palace of Avignon to a medieval feast behind the closed doors of Marksburg Castle, Scenic cater to your appetite for adventure and authenticity.

Entertainment

Throughout your journey, you’ll be immersed in everything from historic castles and classical concerts to magical dinners, majestic chateaux and invitations to the homes of local families. Soak up the luxury of Palais Liechtenstein with an exclusive, private performance showcasing music from Mozart and Strauss during an evening of indulgence. Each unique experience is handpicked for you to truly immerse yourself in the local culture, cuisine and character of the region.

Scenic offers its guests the option to explore independently with a tailormade escape. You’ll be provided with a GPS touring device complete with an interactive map and commentary, giving you the freedom to explore at your own pace should you wish to. With more than 240 tour options in over 140 European locations, your GPS locator effortlessly guides you through your own personal excursion.
