Reignite Your Love to Travel, with Scenic

There are many reasons we travel. Some seek the art, cuisine and culture of a destination; others gravitate towards its natural beauty or incredible history. At Scenic, we love to travel, and we love that you share this passion with us. For 34 years, this love has led us to explore the planet from pole to pole in search of one-of-a-kind wonders to share with our guests.
While the world’s wonders may be beyond our reach right now, our love to travel will always stay strong. There’s no denying the numerous benefits we all get from travelling, many of which leave a lasting impression on us. Here are just a few of the reasons why we at Scenic love to travel and why you can enjoy complete peace-of-mind when you plan your next journey with us

Recharge your body and mind

Travelling allows for the ultimate way to recharge your body and mind. What could be more relaxing than unwinding in a luxurious spa as serene views unfold beyond the window on the horizon? Or perhaps relaxation for you means reconnecting with nature during a hike in the great outdoors? We love that travel helps us reach this level of tranquility and wellness.
On board Scenic Eclipse, relaxation takes on a whole new meaning. Designed with your wellness in mind, there are an abundance of relaxation spaces available. Discover the pure indulgence of the Senses Spa, which features therapeutic Jacuzzis, saunas, steam rooms, spa treatment rooms, and the Vitality Lounge. The vast number of treatments and spaces are sure to leave you feeling rejuvenated and relaxed. Elsewhere, the Observation Terrace and Observation Lounge offer exceptional views to calm your mind, letting you watch as awe-inspiring scenery peppers the horizon.
When you journey through Europe on one of our luxurious Space-Ships, bask in some ‘me time’ in the revitalizing Salt Therapy Lounge#. Breathe in the healing benefits of this ancient modality; the salt brick walls of the humid and temperature-controlled lounge are designed to boost your respiratory and immune systems. Or let a gentle river breeze wake up your senses on your own private Scenic ‘Sun Lounge’ balcony in your suite.

Create lasting relationships and memories

Travel brings us together. It crosses cultures, borders and communities, letting us forge new friendships and shape lasting relationships. One of the best parts of any travel experience is creating memories to cherish for a lifetime. When you travel with loved ones, sharing these moments makes the complete travel experience all the more special. And, when you travel solo, there are always opportunities to connect with like minded travellers or the welcoming local community along the way.
Scenic Eclipse and our fleet of Space-Ships are all designed with spacious surrounds and numerous public areas to unwind in. Small guest numbers paired with a serene onboard atmosphere offer the chance to meet your fellow guests and build new friendships. Recount the adventures from your day exploring on shore or share your earlier travel experiences over your favourite drink from the Sun Deck or onboard bars. If you would prefer the solace of your own company, you will easily be able to find a secluded spot to retreat to.

Embrace new cultures and appreciate the world around you

As American author Mark Twain famously said, “One must travel to learn”. Travelling allows us to gain a new appreciation of the world around us, letting us embrace different cultures, learn local customs, witness things we’ve never seen before, and, perhaps, even try our hand at practicing the language.
As part of our Scenic Enrich program across our river cruises, you can immerse yourself in the local culture like never before. These exclusive experiences are designed to expose you to boundless cultural discovery. Tour a local gallery after-hours, be treated to a private musical performance in a stunning venue, savour an exclusive banquet in a castle, and even be invited into the home of a local family for an authentic lunch. These experiences are the perfect opportunity to discover the heritage and folklore of a region, learning about a different way of life.
Scenic Eclipse allows you to discover the world around you in a whole new light. With the fleet of discovery vehicles, handcrafted excursions and adventurous Scenic Discovery program, there is no limit to where you can go. Our Discovery Leaders are on board Scenic Eclipse for every 6-star luxury cruise, inviting you to discover beyond the horizon on the fleet of Zodiacs, kayaks, helicopters and specialist Scenic Neptune submarine^. One day you could be soaring through the skies by helicopter to witness an incredible view of snowy tundra from above; or dive underwater in Scenic Neptune to explore a tropical underwater world; or delight in close encounters with fascinating wildlife during a Zodiac ride – there’s no better way to appreciate Mother Nature and the world around you. 

Fuel your curiosity and sense of adventure

Whatever pace you set for your holiday, travel is an adventure that helps fuel our curiosity. From those seeking the adrenaline rush of walking through the snowy tundra of the Arctic or diving below the surface of the Mediterranean Sea to witness the marine life, to those looking to indulge in the authentic culinary delicacies of Europe or the age-old customs of Southeast Asia, adventure and travel go hand in hand.
We understand that every traveller is different, which is why our Scenic Freechoice program has been designed to let you tailor your holiday to suit your interests and desired pace. On our river cruises, you can choose from an extensive range of shore excursions, stopping every day in the heart of a city, town or village. From guided bike rides and city walking tours to the chance to visit a local museum or indulge in the authentic flavours of your destination, there are plenty of opportunities to soak up regional highlights and hidden gems alike.
Adventure is synonymous with Scenic Eclipse; our collection of 6-star luxurious cruises invite you to discover exciting parts of the world that, until now, have been inaccessible to the ordinary traveller. Choose from an array of Scenic Freechoice activities, handpicked by our Journey Designers for adventure seekers looking for new and unique experiences. Our Scenic Discovery excursions will also be at the top of the list for any avid explorer – join our Discovery Team on the Zodiacs and kayaks for fascinating insight into the local wildlife and nature, take to the skies in the onboard helicopters, or travel underwater in the Scenic Neptune submarine^.
