What is Nth Degree Service?

Identifying and attending to our guests’ wishes (even before they know what they need themselves) is what we call the Scenic ‘Nth Degree’. 
We understand that no two people are the same and everyone’s holiday plans are unique. Our expert crew will anticipate your needs and deliver a service of 5-star excellence, ensuring your time on a Scenic Space-Ship is one of ultimate luxury and complete comfort.

Your river cruise experience will be tailored to you. From the Captain and Cruise Director to the bar staff, chefs and wellness professionals, every member of the Scenic-trained team is dedicated to making your journey unforgettable. There are also some on board staff you may never meet, but they are busy working behind-the-scenes to make sure everything goes to plan.

As the best in the business, you can count on our Cruise Directors to address your every need. They will be your main point of contact throughout your river cruise and work tirelessly to ensure every moment of your holiday is flawless. From assisting you with any concerns to answering your questions about your chosen destination, our Cruise Directors will be your guide and friend rolled into one. They also manage all cruise logistics, including port stops, embarkation, disembarkation and shore excursions. You’ll get the chance to meet your Cruise Director when you first board the Space-Ship and at daily briefings.

Chefs & Wait Staff
Cuisine is an important part of your river cruise experience. Savour exceptional dining and beverages, expertly curated by our award-winning chefs and bar staff.

The daily menus are carefully crafted to cater for all palates and dietary requirements, including healthy dishes, low carb options, vegetarian meals, and classic favourites.
Our enthusiastic wait and bar staff are on hand to help you pair the perfect beverage with your meal. They will tailor their service to you, remembering whether you prefer tea or coffee (or even Champagne) at breakfast, and if you’d rather drink red wine, white wine or a local beer with lunch and dinner. They will also happily prepare your favourite cocktail, mocktail or premium spirit drink, letting you watch the unfolding landscapes – all at no extra cost.
Wellness Team
If you seek the ultimate luxurious pampering session or wish to feel truly relaxed and rejuvenated, book an appointment with our wellness team.

Feel invigorated in the morning by participating in a sunrise yoga class on the Sun Deck with the team.
Local Guides
Our local guides are important members of our on shore team. They are the storytellers who will show you the wonders of our ports of call during your Scenic Enrich experiences and Scenic Freechoice activities. We believe nobody knows a location quite like someone who lives there; these guides are experts and will be able to answer any questions you may have about the area. They will take you off the beaten track to explore the little known gems and share anecdotes, offering an immersive experience that lets you soak up the local history and culture.
