2013 GOLD LIST AWARDS - ‘BEST LUXURY TOUR OPERATOR’

Scenic Tours receives highest rank of river cruise ship category with an ‘award of excellence’

Scenic Cruises, the cruising division of Scenic Tours, has received an ‘Award of Excellence’ from renowned author Steven B. Stern after being ranked in the highest class category for river cruise ships in his book, ‘Guide to European Riverboats and Hotel Barges’. Stern has sailed on over 790 cruise ships, river cruise ships and hotel barges, visiting every major port of call in the world, and personally inspecting virtually every ship currently in operation. He has evaluated every vessel based on comfort and luxury.

In the comprehensive guide, Stern has ranked 16 different river cruise companies into four categories, Deluxe, Premium, Standard and Economy. The river cruise ships have not been categorised based upon price or clientele like ocean cruising. Instead Stern says, “Some riverboats offer more than others, and therefore, I have assigned class categories to reflect which are in the best condition, are most well-appointed, and offer the most common facilities, the best dining and service, and the most comfortable accommodation. Those that are all-inclusive and include all alcoholic beverages, all tours, and other amenities will receive the highest ratings.”
