Scenic has unveiled a range of new immersive Scenic Enrich experiences with the release of its 2022 European River Cruises Collection. From exclusive after-hours access to Bordeaux’s Les Bassins de Lumières, to canapés and a guided tour of Motorworld in Cologne. These new experiences, along with Enrichment Managers, showcase why Scenic European cruising sets the standard for all others to follow – a truly all-inclusive luxury vacation in a class of its own. Additional details as well as information on each of the itineraries offered are provided in Scenic’s 2022 Hidden Wonders of Europe’s Rivers brochure, now available to order or view online at www.scenicusa.com/brochures.
Although Scenic’s many shore-based offerings often ‘steal the show,’ 2022 will also find an array of new onboard programs to further educate and entertain the guests. Every Scenic Space-Ship now has an onboard Enrichment Manager for all European river cruises. The Enrichment Manager will be responsible for hosting cabaret nights, cooking lessons, wine tastings, informative lectures and ensuring guests fully enjoy their experience. Some of the new offerings include an onboard glass blower demonstration, painting classes for guests sailing the Rhône and a lecture from a tulip grower in the Netherlands.
Scenic’s enrichment program (Scenic Enrich) has always been one of the true highlights for its guests – offering exclusivity and the opportunity for lifetime memories – and 2022 will see several new ones. Bordeaux’s immersive exhibition, Les Bassins de Lumières, is housed in a cavernous former submarine base that has been transformed into a vast center for digital art. The largest of its kind in the world, the immersive exhibition features spectacular sensory light and sound displays. Scenic guests will enjoy exclusive after-hours access to enjoy the stunning displays without the crowds. The exhibition visit is included on two of Scenic’s 2022 11-day river cruises – Beautiful Bordeaux and Flavours of Bordeaux Culinary Cruise.
The 15-day Jewels of Europe has added Motorworld, Cologne. This exclusive event for Scenic guests showcases the high-octane German motoring heritage and private collection of Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher at Motorworld in Cologne. After a welcome drink with canapés, guests will enjoy an after-hours access guided tour of Motorworld. They can even put their pedal to the metal on one of the race simulators.
Guests also enjoy the latest Super Earlybird offers when booking a Balcony Suite or above. Options include Super Earlybird savings of 10%, free single supplements and more, can be found at: www.scenicusa.com/special-offers/2022-europe-river-cruise.
Scenic guests can book with confidence as the company is providing a range of practical policies. New bookings receive Scenic’s Flexible Booking Policy, where guests can defer or cancel up to 60-days prior to departure. Guests can also add a Risk-Free Platinum Protection Plan (PPP) for $295. By purchasing this plan, they are covered if they are unable to travel due to health reasons, or their travel plans are impacted by COVID-19, up to 31 days prior to departure with a 100% refund (less airline cancellation fees and PPP cost).
Scenic is also working closely with the relevant regulatory authorities, to ensure that all health and safety protocols will be met or exceeded, based on the latest requirements to ensure the well being and safety of the guests and crew.
The 5-star Scenic Space-Ships offer all-inclusive luxury experiences – from private butler service and unlimited complimentary beverages and spirits including mini-bar re-stocked daily, to six on-board dining options and a wellness area and fitness center. And guests will never have to reach for the wallet or purse as everything (except a haircut or massage) is included: tips and gratuities, expert local guides, all Scenic Freechoice activities that allow for a more personalized vacation, plus Scenic Enrich events which are exclusive to Scenic and its guests.
