Your Well-being, Your Way on a Scenic River Cruise in South East Asia

It’s more than wellness on a Scenic South East Asia River Cruise


A cruise along the lengthy Mekong River takes you to the very heart and essence of this vibrant and exotic region.  It’s here on the nourishing delta of Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, that you can witness and experience the essence of life, culture and daily practices of the people. On a Scenic 5-star truly all-inclusive river cruise, you can take it all in from the river itself and feel connected to the destination.  
There are a broad range of wellness amenities and features on board Scenic Spirit designed for your pampering, rejuvenation and relaxation. Watch as locals rise with the sun and attend a morning yoga class on the Sun Deck as daylight awakens activity on the river. Test your core strength in Pilates classes or take weight training sessions at the gym – it’s all included.  

When dining, if your tastes lead you to choose a vegan salad or a succulent steak, you can expect to enjoy the freshest of flavours in your cuisine – as our chefs visit local food markets during the cruise, supporting the communities of the Mekong. 

You’ll find that a journey with Scenic offers more than healthy choices, it’s wellness that nourishes mind, body and soul.  
Here are some wellbeing options you can experience during your truly all-inclusive luxury Scenic river cruise along the Mekong: 

It’s more than a small ship experience...

The handpicked, varied and fascinating excursion options allow you to choose a pace that suits you, whether it be a wellness experience one day or a vibrant cultural event the next. 

Our exclusive Scenic Enrich experiences will be one of the main highlights of your journey, taking you deeper into the culture of Vietnam and Cambodia through immersive, once-in-a-lifetime performances and sacred local experiences. Take part in activities and events that are invigorating for the body and mind.

It’s more than personalised travel... 

You have the freedom to choose how to restore your mind and body while on board Scenic Spirit. Begin your day with some gentle stretches in the morning yoga class on the Sun Deck, or during a Pilates class at the Wellness Centre on Gem Deck. Let our wellness experts guide you through a session of mindful meditation or soak up some warm sunlight during a stroll on the walking track. For a morning of peaceful solitude, simply have your butler deliver your morning coffee and breakfast to your suite as you dine in your private Scenic Sun Lounge, while taking in the ever-changing scenery.  

A variety of open public spaces on board offer you the chance to enjoy a drink in private or catch up with new friends over coffee. Take in the views from the Observation Lounge, savour a cocktail amid the fresh river breeze in the Outdoor Lounge, or pick up an interesting book in the library. All of the indoor public spaces and suites are fully ventilated with pre-treated fresh air.
