NEW! Themed River Cruises in 2021
 

FRANCE’S EPICUREAN DELIGHTS IN BORDEAUX AND THE SOUTH OF FRANCE


For guests wishing to explore the epicurean delights of France, they have need to look no further than Scenic’s 12-day Tastes of Southern France, priced from $7095 per person ($8570 CAD), double before the savings, or 12-day Flavors of Bordeaux, priced from $7770  ($8270 CAD) (also before the savings). Both itineraries include one pre-cruise night in Paris and train transport to the ship.
 
Highlights in Southern France include meeting a local truffle farmer, enjoying a cooking demonstration at the acclaimed restaurant of Georges Blanc in Mâcon, savoring a meal on board cooked by Michelin-star Chef Didier Goiffon, participating in a blind wine tasting, and shopping with the ship’s chef at a local market before coming back and cooking up a storm in the ship’s dedicated cooking demonstration kitchen, Scenic Culinaire.

 
Guests on the Bordeaux sailing can look forward to an array of fine wines and incredible food experiences: cycling through the vineyards of Sauternes and tasting the Grand Cru wines of Château Lafaurie Peyraguey and the fine brandies of Remy Martin, enjoy a wine and cheese pairing experience, discover the history of foie gras during a farm visit, and shop with the chef for local ingredients to use in a Scenic Culinaire class.
 

 

IMPERIAL EUROPE ALONG THE DANUBE

 
A new 5-day Tastes of Imperial Europe adds to the roster of great choices. This cruise is for those wishing to dive deep into the cultures of Vienna and Budapest, with two days spent in each city, with a day in Bratislava in between.
 
The extra days mean more time to explore Vienna’s world-famous State Opera, St. Stephens Cathedral, the opulent rooms of Schönbrunn Palace, and to wander through the many shops with local crafts and hard to resist pastries. Two days in Budapest offers guests an opportunity to truly explore one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. From the Fisherman’s Bastion to labyrinths of the Hospital in the Rock to the 20-plus thermal pools of the 107-year-old Szechenyi Bath. Topped off with an exclusive-to-Scenic private classical music concert at the 18th-century Gödöllö Palace, the second largest Baroque Palace in the world. Fares start at $2195 per person, double ($2895 CAD).

 
 

ADDING MORE LAND TO YOUR RIVER CRUISE

 
Guests booking the eight-day Tulips or Rhine Highlights itineraries should consider adding a new four-day city stay in Bruges, known for its canals, cobbled streets and medieval buildings. This is one of 20 add-on possibilities, spanning from London to Paris to Switzerland to Madrid.
