Scenic and Emerald Cruises Launch “Second Guest Sails Free” Campaign


Book by August 14 to save on a variety of 2022 and 2023 river and ocean cruises

Hollywood, FL (July 2022) – With the return-to-USA testing requirement no longer in effect and the Euro on near par with the US dollar, there is no better time to book a European vacation. Or anywhere in the world…To celebrate, Scenic Group has announced the launch of their Second Guest Sails Free offer on a variety of river and ocean cruises for both Scenic and Emerald Cruiseslines.


The offer is good on all Europe and Asia river cruises departures between now and June 30, 2023. For Emerald Cruises river sailings, it is for cabins on the Vista or Horizon decks, and for Scenic, for all river cabins. On the oceans, Emerald Cruises is extending the deal on all 2022 and 2023 Arabian Sea departures. Scenic is also extending the offer to all 2022 and 2023 Eclipse Americas departures which includes cruises along both the east and west coasts of Canada and the US, as well as a variety of sailings in Latin America.


The special offer is valid on new bookings made between July 25 and August 14 on applicable 2022 and 2023 river and ocean cruises. Both guests must be in the same cabin, and payment must be made in full within 72 hours of booking.


River itineraries include:
Emerald Cruises Sensations of Lyon and Provence eight-day sailing along the Rhône and Saône rivers embodies the ideal Southern France and Provence vacation, complete with a mix of historic tours, visits to wineries and local markets, and plenty of free time for travelers to explore on their own. This sailing offers a taste of Southern France that is entirely hassle-free. And because Emerald Cruises pricing is inclusive of all meals, gratuities, tours, and even airport transfers to and from the ship, travelers don’t have to worry about keeping an eye on their expenses.


Scenic is introducing a new eight-day itinerary for 2023 – Charming Castles & Vineyards of the Rhine & Moselle. Sailing between Frankfurt (Mainz) and Basel, guests will take in the millennia-long history and world-famous wines of the region. Castles such as Burg Eltz, dating back 850 years and still in possession of the original family, and Château du Haut-Kœnigsbourg, overlooking the Alsace plain, with its collection of weaponry dating back to the Middle Ages, are waiting to be explored, while the Riesling wines of the Moselle Valley are ready to be poured.


Ocean highlights include:
The Gems of the Arabian Peninsula on the luxury yacht, Emerald Azzurra, explores the historic and beautiful countries of Qatar, Oman and the United Arab Emirates, including Abu Dhabi and Dubai. From Abu Dhabi, the UAE’s capital and second largest city, to the beaches of the desert island of Sir Baniyas Island, to Portuguese-influenced Khasab, Oman, nicknamed the “Norway of Arabia” with its dramatic mountains, cliffs and fjords, there is plenty to see and learn about during this eight-day adventure.


Guests aboard the ultra-luxury Scenic Eclipse will sail from Lima, Peru to Santiago, Chile on this 11-day exploration of Latin America on Latin America Delights and see many of the South American west coast’s best sites. From crashing waves and waddling penguins to the world’s driest desert and a town right out of a western movie, the scenic beauty and wildlife is everywhere. And then there is the mesmerizing Latin American culture — Peruvian music gets the guests moving, pisco sours give them fuel and the mysterious Andean geoglyphs keeps them in awe of the amazing history.
