Scenic Space-Ships have a maximum 163 guests on board, creating a spacious river cruise experience. However, if you’re looking for the luxury of an even more intimate environment, did you know that two of our Space-Ships have even smaller guest numbers? The award-winning Scenic Gem on the River Seine in northern France holds just 124 guests, while Scenic Azure, our Space-Ship which cruises Portugal’s Douro River holds only 96 guests. Janelle Maher, Journey Designer for Scenic shares, “Travelling by small ship is the perfect way to see the Douro and Seine rivers. You can dock in small towns and villages and get up close and experience local culture just moments after disembarking each day. In fact, Scenic Gem was designed to access a special part of the Seine in Honfleur, a location many other vessels are unable to reach.” We have seen many savvy Scenic guests naturally drawn to the “small ship experience” for 2022 with bookings popular for Portugal in July, August and November and along the historic Seine in July and August. Given the smaller number of suites available, if these wonderful destinations are on your travel list for 2022 book now to ensure you secure your perfect itinerary.
