Scenic River Cruises: Take a look at Europe and Asia

Scenic is the name, and scenic river cruises are their game! From Europe to Asia, the river cruising branch of parent company Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours offers fantastic and adventurous holidays to cruisers around the globe.

The all-inclusive nature of a Scenic river cruise makes for a very luxurious holiday! Combined with the inherent excitement of a river cruise which puts so many destinations right at your fingertips, it's such a great way to see the world.

The Scenic fleet

The line has a large family of ships, the majority of which they call "space ships" not due to their out-of-this-world nature but in reference to their spaciousness.

Most of the river ships are very similar to each other, although there are a few smaller than the standard space ship. This includes the 112-passenger Scenic Tsar which sails Russia's Volga River, and the 68-passenger all-suite Scenic Spirit which cruises the Mekong in Southeast Asia.

The space ships series includes the Scenic Ruby, the Scenic Pearl, the Scenic Sapphire, the Scenic Jewel, the Scenic Jade, the Scenic Emerald, the Scenic Diamond, the Scenic Crystal and the Scenic Gem. Highlights of these vessels include:

  • Gyms, spas and pools.
  • Beautiful sun decks with amazing views.
  • Bars and lounges for relaxing and socialising.
  • Luxurious suites and staterooms with butler service.
  • Shipwide WiFi.


Scenic activities and entertainment

Much of the fun on a Scenic cruise is focused on the fabulous river cities and ports. The "Freechoice" onshore activities include sightseeing tours, biking and other active pursuits, market visits, museum transfers and more, and are all included in the cruise fare so passengers can explore to their hearts' content with a bit of help from experts. Onboard, there are the facilities mentioned above to keep everyone busy, as well as a few organised events like a galley tour and port overviews by the cruise director.

In the evenings, the Panorama Lounge is the place to be for entertainment. It offers music and dancing on each ship, and occasionally a local performer.

Scenic river cruise destinations

The list of places visited by Scenic River cruises is a long one! In Europe, their itineraries cover France, Portugal, Germany, Austria, Hungary and Russia to name just a few of the beautiful countries. Down in southeast Asia, Scenic offers cruises on the Mekong River through Cambodia and Vietnam, and on the Irrawaddy River visiting the delights of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma).
