When Scenic says they deliver an all-inclusive luxury river cruise experience, they mean exactly that…and more.
For Scenic, all-inclusive luxury not only means butler service for every suite, with exquisite 5-star dining, top-shelf beverages and immersive shore excursions, but exclusive Scenic inclusions such as private events, once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and the comfort in knowing that everything is taken care of from start to finish.
The Scenic difference is also knowing that you never have to reach for your wallet. In fact, you won’t even need to provide your credit card at check in. Save that for the souvenir shopping onshore.
Scenic Enrich and Scenic Freechoice are curated once-in-a-lifetime events and experiences that will truly make your all-inclusive river journey unique.
Scenic Enrich includes a range of unique shore experiences that are guaranteed to offer dynamic cultural highlights and events rarely seen on a cruise or tour. They are thoughtfully curated by Scenic Journey Designers to immerse you in each destination. Usually not available to the general public, they provide a special glimpse into the history and culture of the city or region visited.
Here’s just a sample.
