The ultimate river cruise experience
At Scenic Tours, we call our approach ‘ultra-all-inclusive’ because we’ve taken what you’d expect from an all-inclusive river cruise to a whole new level. Absolutely everything is included in the price of your river cruise, even the luxuries you’d presume to pay extra for. Simply put, you can quite feasibly just bring your passport, and leave your wallet at home.

It's also worth noting that you can choose to depart from up to 15 UK airports, so you can fly to your ship from the airport that’s closest and most convenient for you, without worrying about hidden supplements or charges*.

If you'd prefer not to fly, you can also take the Eurostar. It’s a wonderfully relaxing way to meet your cruise. And of course, on river cruises where travel by rail is possible, it’s included in the price.
 
 
Cruises with 'no fly' options:
8 day Highlights of the Rhine
15 day Romantic Rhine & Moselle
8 day Dutch Sights & Belgian Delights
 
 
11 day Bordeaux River Cruise
13 day Splendours of Southern France
8 day Enchanting Rhone
11 day Gems of the Seine
 
ERC Wine
all drinks complimentary Soft drinks, tea and coffee, wine, beer, spirits and cocktails – any time you wish, however many you wish, all drinks are included in the price of your holiday. From a speciality Irish coffee to house champagne, a cosmopolitan to a Glenmorangie malt whisky, and even the drinks you’ll find in your mini-bar – they’re all complimentary and that’s throughout your entire cruise.
 
All-inclusive Unlike other operators, to us, all-inclusive means that once you’ve paid for your cruise, you needn’t spend a penny more. From your flights; accommodation; all meals and drinks; all excursions and
experiences to even the Wi-Fi on-board are included in the price. Not to mention all port charges, transfers, airport taxes and tips saving you up to £850 per couple throughout your cruise.

Balcony Suite
Luxury Fleet The moment you step aboard a ‘Space-Ship’ you’ll notice an incredible sense of space and an astonishing level of luxury you simply won’t find anywhere else.

impeccable service From the finest Cruise Directors to the experienced crew on-board and expert
local guides, each member of staff has been handpicked for their knowledge and expertise and trained to meet the most meticulous standards. Plus, now with even more staff on-board each cruise, you can rest assured that there will always be someone on-hand to help.
 
inspiring experiences Exclusive and extra special, Scenic Enrich creates once-in-a-lifetime moments
that will live in the memory for ever, like private classical concerts in the grandest

Convenient travel Our aim is to make your holiday with us as easy and enjoyable as possible, starting
with your travel arrangements. Firstly, you can choose from up to 15 regional airports to fly from – and no matter which you choose, your flights are included in the price.

on The Riverview Terrace, you’ll enjoy an array of venues and a variety of menus each day.
