Scenic operates the most luxurious fleet of river cruise ships in Europe and Russia. Its 16 “Space-Ships” sail all-inclusive river voyages ranging from seven to 21 nights. Eighty-five percent of the staterooms feature private, full-sized balconies that are known as “Sun Lounges,” where the walkout open-air balcony can convert to an all-weather lounge with a push of a button. Other unique aspects include exclusive excursions; six on-board dining options; and the company’s “Scenic Tailormade” system, a GPS-guided handheld device with full audio and mapping that’s preloaded with independent tours. Beyond the comfort and design of the ships is the quality of the entire experience, which is truly all-inclusive. From the moment they land in their destination until the time they depart, Scenic guests don’t have to take out their wallets for anything – not excursions, drinks, butler service, gratuities, transfers - nothing… unless they buy a souvenir or opt to have a massage or haircut while on board. http://www.scenicusa.com
