Scenic is adding several incentives to its early-bird deals. Guests booking any June, July, or August 2019 European sailing by August 31, 2018 will receive a €200 per suite onboard credit and, for those booking sailings of 11 days or longer, free roundtrip door-to-door US airport transfers. This is combinable with the free air, free single supplement, discounted flight upgrades, loyalty and travel show vouchers, and pay-in-full offers already available. It is not combinable with Groups and National Geographic sailings.
New onboard experiences and excursions give both new and returning guests added variety including new active focus cruises in Bordeaux and South of France offering yoga sessions, e-bike cycling routes, and Nordic hiking; and the addition of the company’s Salt Therapy Lounge wellness experience to all its ships sailing on the Rhine, Main, Danube, Saône and Rhône rivers.
As an example, a couple booking a 15-day Jewels of Europe sailing between Amsterdam and Budapest enjoy free roundtrip air, a €200 onboard credit voucher for spa and salon treatments or maybe a gift from the ship’s store, free roundtrip home-to-airport transfers, and up to $1,000 per couple savings by paying in full by August 31, 2018. Scenic is the only river cruise line to include a river cruise guarantee, automatically covering every guest on the commencement of their cruise for any delays or cancellations due to weather, high/low water issues, natural disasters, mechanical breakdowns or labor strikes, reimbursing approved claimants up to $750 per day with a maximum of seven days or $5,250 per guest.
