Scenic Cruises 2019-2021 Swiss-based Scenic is the only Australian owned and operated river cruising company in Europe. In 2019 Scenic Eclipse, a 228-guest “Discovery Yacht”, opened the line to ocean cruising. Scenic’s 12 five-star ‘Space-Ships’ sail the nine major rivers of Europe. If sailing is affected by extreme river levels, Scenic guarantees up to $1000 per day remuneration. Ships feature larger than average suites and (on most ships) full-size, private outdoor enclosable balconies on two decks. Public areas are very spacious. The Crystal Dining Room seats all guests at one seating. When relaxing in restaurants and bars, floor-to-ceiling windows give excellent views forward of the ship. Apart from personal spending, everything is inclusive – sight-seeing, e-bikes, audio and GPS guidance, meals, 24h drinks, local entertainment, airport transfers, and gratuities.
