Fairy-tale castles perched on oak-filled mountains, carefully crafted chapels filled with whispers and secrets, and picture-perfect postcard villages where Kings once ruled. Europe is a historical masterpiece waiting to be discovered with Scenic.
It’s the first note filling the grand state room of the Palais Liechtenstein. The satisfaction as a slice of Roquefort melts on your tongue in Bordeaux. The light hum of French filling the labyrinth of cobbled streets in Rouen.
It is refined culture, exquisite cuisine, and rich history we’re looking forward to in 2022 and beyond. And with a 5-star truly all-inclusive luxury Europe river cruise with Scenic there’s an abundance of extraordinary experiences waiting to be discovered on board your Scenic Space-Ship, and onshore in the many sensational ports we visit.
Be Immersed in the Magic of Music
One of the most alluring elements of Europe is the ability to step back in time. Following in the footsteps of Royals and nobles at your own private classical concert at the Palais Liechtenstein in Vienna. A classical concert filling the grandiose room at the prestigious Pope’s Palace in Avignon. Music filling the opulent halls of Baroque Palace of Rastatt. Reserved exclusively for Scenic guests, Scenic Enrich encounters unlock magnificent experiences that are truly unique, and which create memories that will last a lifetime.
An Unrivalled Display of Art, Light and Water
Set in a former submarine base in Bordeaux, Les Bassins de Lumieres is a vast, spectacular 360-degree immersive digital art installation. The monumental architecture comes to life as art dances against the darkness and is illuminated over pristine pools of water. The largest digital art display in the world, it is five times that of the celebrated Atelier des Lumières which opened in Paris in 2018. A new Scenic Enrich for 2022, guests will be immersed in the outstanding and unique artwork in a first-of-its-kind exclusive after-hours experience. It is going to be truly spectacular.

Tapping into Your Curiosity for Culture

Visiting a vibrant Bordeaux market with your on board chef is an unrivalled opportunity to immerse yourself in the truly unique French approach to dining. You’ll be guided through the market, taking the opportunity to shop for, and taste, the best the region has to offer. Then it’s back to your Scenic Space-Ship for an on board cooking lesson in Scenic Culinaire. With Scenic’s truly-all-inclusive philosophy, everything is taken care of during this tailormade experience.
Discover the Secret Favourites Loved by Locals
With Scenic, the difference is in the detail. A team of Journey Designers have curated spectacular experiences to ensure your 5-star river cruise is more than an exploration of Europe but a deep dive into the heart of this magical region.

Kayak on the Gardon River underneath the spectacular Pont du Gard, offering a truly unique perspective of the engineering marvel. Or using your personal handheld guide, the Scenic Tailormade app, explore tucked-away villages by taking a complimentary e-Bikes out for the day.
