Scenic Cruises and National Geographic

Scenic Cruises and National Geographic

Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours has partnered with National Geographic Expeditions. On each of the eight new sailings on Scenic’s fleet of custom built 5-star river ships guests will have a choice of ‘Scenic Enrich’ all-inclusive sightseeing and activities, ranging from hikes and bike rides to in-depth learning experiences that focus on the natural world, culture and history.


Weaving their way like a thread across the tapestry of Europe, connecting countries, cultures and traditions, is the diverse and historic river system which the Scenic Space-Ships have made their own. On these National Geographic cruises travellers will sail on the Rhine, Danube, Main and Moselle Rivers; through France’s Bordeaux region and Portugal’s Douro Valley. With ‘Scenic Enrich’ guests will explore cultural treasures including castles, gothic churches and Christmas markets as well as enchanting landscapes of vineyards and meandering rivers. In Myanmar, the Irrawaddy river cruise takes guests past ancient stupas, historical sites and ever-changing landscapes.


Accompanying each sailing is a National Geographic expert who will give talks on board and accompany daily outings; a National Geographic photographer will also join all European sailings to share tips on technique and artistry. Joining the ‘Explore the gems of the River Danube’ in October 2018, is National Geographic Expert Teresa Fisher, who has written over 30 guidebooks and specialises in European cities.


Along the way, guests will relish the utmost in all-inclusive service and amenities: personalized butler service, delectable meals served in a variety of dining venues, an open bar, wellness facilities, Wi-Fi, GPS-driven self-guided tours that you can take ashore, spacious suites and lounges, and so much more.


Scenic is known as one of the most inclusive river cruise lines, while National Geographic Expeditions has a well-documented focus on enrichment; it all adds up to a perfect combination. To find out more call our experienced team on 0800 484 0370.
