2008 hailed the beginning of a new chapter for Scenic, with the launch of our exclusive Scenic ‘Space-Ships’ for Europe. Widely acknowledged as the finest on Europe’s waterways, our fleet of Scenic ‘Space-Ships’ have been designed to provide the best in passenger comfort, boasting unrivalled space, luxurious amenities and two full decks of Private Balcony Suites which feature full-size, private outdoor balconies adjoining the spacious internal cabins, a choice of dining and the option to enjoy private butler service. In July 2008 our first luxury river cruise ships Scenic Sapphire and Scenic Emerald were launched.
I’m so proud that Scenic is still a private, Australian-owned company, employing staff and tour crew worldwide. We are truly global, operating hundreds of extended touring programmes to many exotic domestic and international destinations. I find it personally rewarding that so many of our guests choose to travel with us again and again.
