There are so many wonderful moments waiting to be uncovered in this beautiful and historically rich continent, and Scenic’s handcrafted journeys were designed to do exactly that. Europe’s majestic waterways span a varied and spectacular region with so much to offer - from timeless villages that preserve traditions most other regions have lost, to spectacular cities and architectural masterworks.

SCENIC RIVER CRUISES

Europe river cruising map

Our European Rivers

Sail Europe's great rivers: only the spectacular ever-changing scenery reminds you that you're on a ship, and not in a five-star hotel.

River cruising

Rivers have been used for transporting people and goods for thousands of years, that’s why there’s so much history and culture surrounding them. A river cruise holiday down any one of the world’s waterways can be an inspiring way to explore the nearby cities, towns, villages and never-ending scenery. Sit back and let the sights come to you, the rest is taken care of.

Europe river cruising

Experience the timeless elegance, diverse cultures and fairy-tale landscapes of Europe along the Rhine, Moselle and Danube rivers. Embark on a journey through the ages and uncover everything from Roman ruins to contemporary cities while basking in the luxury of your own floating hotel.

France river cruising

From the wine region of Burgundy where the Saône and Rhône rivers cut a beguiling path, to the Garonne and Dordogne in the heart of Bordeaux and the famous Seine in Northern France; the waterways of France are intertwined with history, gastronomy, culture and art.

Portugal river cruising

The city of Porto stands at the mouth of Portugal’s Douro River. It’s the first of many UNESCO World Heritage Sites that nestle along the sun-drenched waterway across the breadth of the country to the border of Spain. Foodies and wine lovers are in for a treat when sailing the Golden Valley.

Asia river cruising

Explore a tapestry of culture and colour as you sail the mighty Mekong River through enchanting Southeast Asia. Visit Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Laos and indulge in the pleasures of our 34-one bedroom suite Scenic Spirit ship – the most spacious vessel on these spirited waters.

Russia river cruising

A river cruise is the perfect way to explore Russia’s grand cities and vast countryside. A raised glass of vodka will ensure a warm welcome, whether you’re deep in the heart of St. Petersburg or bound for the famous 'Golden Ring' where a rich patchwork of history is waiting to be uncovered.
