From exclusive after-hours access to Bordeaux’s Les Bassins de Lumières, to canapés and a guided tour of Motorworld in Cologne, the 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. Although Scenic’s many shore-based offerings often ‘steal the show,’ 2022 will also see an array of new onboard programs to further educate and entertain guests.
Every Scenic Space-Ship plying European waterways now has an onboard Enrichment Manager who 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 encounters. These include a visit to Bordeaux’s immersive exhibition, Les Bassins de Lumières, which 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 and Scenic guests will enjoy exclusive after-hours access to its stunning displays during 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, where an exclusive event will showcase Germany’s high-octane motoring heritage as well as the private collection of Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher. After a welcome drink with canapés, guests will enjoy an after-hours guided tour of Motorworld that will even include a chance to put their pedal to the metal on one of the venue’s race simulators.
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.
