River cruising is all about exploring so be sure to pack comfortable walking shoes and layers of clothing for when you’re out exploring the historic sights – it can get chilly near the water or early in the morning. In the evening, smart casual attire is perfectly acceptable, although you might like to dress up for our Scenic Enrich experiences which include classical concerts at legendary Château or castles.
On a Scenic Enrich event, expect more than a standard excursion. They are captivating visits to castles, galleries and museums after-hours being guided by cultural experts.
On board, Scenic Space-Ships feature a gym, so bring your exercise gear with you if you like to sweat it out while on holiday. Pack your swimwear to enjoy a dip in our Vitality Pool on board Scenic Sapphire and Scenic Diamond.
Scenic is also the first and only river cruise company to feature a Salt Therapy Lounge on board its ships where you can absorb the healing properties of salt minerals, known to improve many ailments and improve overall wellbeing (the Scenic Gem on the Seine does not include a Salt Therapy Lounge). With Scenic, it’s more than healthy choices – it's nourishment of mind, body and soul.
Other must-pack essentials items are a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, camera, spare battery and memory cards, universal adaptor, any local currency and medication you might require.
