Scenic Tours, based in Switzerland, is the only Australian owned and operated river cruising company in Europe. In 2018 Scenic Eclipse “Discovery Yacht” opens ocean cruising to the Line. In 2016 Scenic Tours launches its 12th five-star ‘Space-ship’ for European rivers, all vessels virtually identical, with larger than average suites and full-size, private outdoor enclosable balconies on two decks. Public areas are also very spacious. The Crystal Dining Room seats all guests at one seating. When relaxing in Portobello’s Restaurant and Panorama Lounge/Bar, floor-to-ceiling windows give excellent views forward of the ship. Apart from personal spending, everything is inclusive – on-shore sight-seeing, use of e-bikes, hand GPS guides, meals, 24h drinks, local entertainment, airport transfers, and gratuities. Scenic Tours links its river cruises with a selection of 68 tours across Europe and the UK that combine coach, rail and air.

Scenic launched Scenic Tsar in 2014 to sail between Moscow and St Petersburg, and in 2016 launches Scenic Azure on the Douro River in Portugal. Staterooms on their European fleet are among the largest (15 to 42sq. m.) and offer 5-star amenities that include queen beds, flat screen TV with infotainment system, free Internet, luxurious ensuite, and Australian/European power points. Two decks of suites with balconies (constituting 82% of all cabins) include one single suite, and superb Junior and Royal Suites. One deck of suites comes with additional butler services. The Cruise Director oversees all entertainment and on-shore tours with audio and GPS guidance. Two alternative dining option offers fine food, the best local wines, and outstanding views from the front of the ship. Many guests return time and again. All staff are English-speaking. Scenic Tours was awarded “Best Cruise Company” and “Best Tour Operator” in Luxury Travel’s 2015 Gold List Winners’ list.
