  • Innovative Salt Therapy Lounge wellness experience now available on all Rhine, Main, Danube, Saône and Rhône river cruises
  • Online and printed 2019 Scenic European River Cruise brochures will be available mid-June


So, whether it is the new for 2019 eight-day Highlights of Normandy & the Seine cruise itinerary in France, an exploration of Eastern Europe on the 11-day Black Sea Explorer or the very popular 15-day Jewels of Europe, between Amsterdam and Budapest, guests who book earliest will enjoy the greatest savings.


Scenic is the first and only river cruise company to offer guests the benefits of hand-crafted salt brick lounges as a non-invasive way to relax, energize and feel healthier. Lounging chairs separated by privacy curtains, and low-level lighting and calming music encourage relaxation while the overall experience helps promote healing, improves respiration and boosts the immune system. Guests are free to use the rooms as they wish, spending up to a recommended 45-minutes in the lounge.


The company is also the only river cruise line to offer a river cruise guarantee. Backed by Chubb Insurance, and at no cost to the guest, the guarantee automatically covers every guest on the commencement of their cruise for any delays or cancellations due to weather, natural disasters, mechanical breakdowns or labor strikes. Even high/low water issues that plague the industry every year. And just as impressive is that approved claimants will receive direct monetary refunds, up to $750 per day with a maximum of seven days or $5,250 per guest, instead of the industry standard of future cruise credits.


Other Scenic River Cruise All-Inclusive Highlights:

  • Unlimited on-board complimentary drinks
  • All meals and a choice of six dining options
  • Once-in-a-lifetime Enrich events and experiences plus award-winning shore excursions
  • Early bookers get a greater choice of luxury suites – largest on Europe’s rivers
  • Exclusive tailormade GPS devices for self-guided touring and use of electronically assisted bikes
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi and laundry service
  • Private butler service and ALL tips, transfers and taxes


The free air, full air payment and single supplement offers are available to early birds who book a 2019 Scenic European River Cruise by August 31, 2018. The specials are capacity controlled. Free flights revert to $295/$495 per person, depending on itinerary and stateroom category, once capacity limits are met.
