Scenic River Cruise Routes

Scenic’s Bordeaux cruises take you through magnificent wine country and picture perfect medieval villages. Cruising the Seine, meanwhile, is an altogether more romantic experience, taking in the city of light itself as well as some of northern France’s finest sights. Or choose a Rhône cruise and travel from lavender-scented Provence to Burgundy and some of the most sought-after wine terroirs in the world.


Scenic’s ‘Space-Ships’ are beautifully designed, modern vessels that feel more spacious than the usual river cruise ship. Each one has two full decks of private balcony suites and innovative ‘Sun Lounge’ balconies that turn your balcony into a sun room. Each suite is well equipped with a large en-suite bathroom and a complimentary mini-bar that is restocked daily.

Ambience & Cuisine

Contemporary design crossed with five-star luxury is the look and feel of a Scenic cruise. Attentive service is assured by a remarkable crew to passenger ratio of one to two, while there’s considerable attention to every detail. Scenic cruises include all food and drinks, from cocktails on your balcony to fine wines, beer and soft drinks all day long. There’s a choice of dining options, including a six-course tasting menu, as well as 24-hour room service for all passengers.


Whether you want to take things easy or see as much as possible, there’s a range of Scenic Freechoice options available. Ranging from exclusive concerts to guided tours and expert lectures, they’re all included in the price. Scenic Tailormade, meanwhile, is an innovative GPS headset that provides commentaries and information at any time 24/7 for self-guided exploration and you can also make use of electric bicycles.
