National Geographic River Cruises


We’re excited about our partnership with National Geographic Expeditions and to be able to offer our guests National Geographic River Cruises. These sailings will combine Scenic’s all-inclusive luxury river cruise experience with National Geographic's 130-year legacy of science, conservation, and exploration to create a truly unforgettable experience for travelers.

In addition to our all-inclusive amenities, each cruise will be accompanied by a National Geographic expert who will give talks throughout the week and join guests on shore excursions. A National Geographic photographer will also be on board Europe sailings to share techniques and help guests hone their photography skills. On National Geographic River Cruises, Scenic guests will have their choice of new Freechoice excursions developed in collaboration with National Geographic, from hikes and bike rides to in-depth learning experiences that focus on the natural world, culture, and history.

Weaving their way like a thread across the tapestry of Europe, connecting countries, cultures and traditions, is the diverse and historic river system which our Scenic Space-Ships have made their own. The banks are still lined with the magnificent architecture of times past but the cultures and traditions are very much alive today. To feel the magic for yourself, cruise the waterways of the Rhine, Main and Danube through diverse countries such as the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Hungary.
