River Cruise Line: Scenic River Cruises

You can find detailed information for Scenic River Cruises and the ships in their fleet below.

Scenic River Cruises
A relaxing river cruise may not be the most obvious place to find a spaceship. But that’s the Scenic Tours difference.

Every river cruise operator has that unique something, that point of difference that makes them stand out from the rest. For Scenic Tours, that difference is their ‘Space-Ships’, a fleet of the most spacious cruisers on Europe’s waterways. It’s not just that staterooms are larger than average (although they are) or that public areas are wide and expansive (although they are too). A ‘Space-Ship’ means more air and more light. Your river cruising experience with Scenic Tours gives you greater freedom. It feels more relaxing. It’s easier to find your way around – and easier to find help when you need it.

Why Scenic Tours

The Ships: Scenic Tours’ Space-Ships incorporate more private balconies than any other river cruising fleet. In fact more than 80% of staterooms offer the opportunity to relax at your balcony rail and watch Europe glide by. The boutique feel is enhanced by passenger numbers. Ships vary, but you’ll share your river cruising adventure with only 112-169 other guests, so every day feels more exclusive and more prestigious.

Ultra All-Inclusive: Every river cruise operator offers an all-inclusive experience – and usually what’s included is an impressively comprehensive list. But Scenic Tours’ labels its unique brand of river cruising ‘ultra all-inclusive’ because, the odd vintage wine aside, if it’s provided on board then it’s included in the price. If it wasn’t for the souvenir hunting you’d be able to leave your wallet or purse at home.

Scenic Enrich and Scenic FreeChoice: Scenic Tours believes every excursion should deliver exactly what you want of it. Scenic FreeChoice gives you a smorgasbord of experiences from which you can plan your perfect day.

Better still, Scenic Enrich ensures you get to enjoy experiences no one else will. Exclusive ballets, dinners and classical concerts in the grandest of surroundings, from German castles to Russian palaces – and it’s all included in the price.
European River Cruises with Scenic Tours

There are river cruises that cover a huge amount of ground (and water) in a relatively short space of time, and then there are Scenic Tours river cruises, where the distance is matched by the detail, giving you more time to explore in depth and really get under the skin of the regions you’re visiting.

11 days on the Seine. 15 relaxing, romantic days spent cruising the Rhine and Moselle. 13 days exploring Southern France. If you’re ready for a river cruise that rewards fewer miles with an even richer experience, try a European river cruise with Scenic Tours.

Russian River Cruises with Scenic Tours
It’s not all St Petersburg and Moscow. As magnificent as those two cities are, the journey between them is a river cruise in the wake of Peter the Great. You’ll pass densely wooded islands and fairy tale, onion domed churches. Riverside villages appear to have changed little over the past century, whilst brutalist relics of the Soviet machine make you realise that some things have changed a great deal. And book-ending your journey: the Kremlin and the Winter Palace. Never has there been a more captivating insight into Russia.
