Rhine Highlights, All-Inclusive 8 Days From $3,260 Per Person, Only Five Cabins
On October 22, 2018, I’ll be in Amsterdam to host an 8-day cruise on Scenic Jewel. Want to join me? I’ve reserved five cabins for 10 people, with me as your host, showing you some of the secrets of the Rhine.
This is a popular itinerary on an all-inclusive, ultra-luxury Scenic ship. Prices for this 8-day, all-inclusive Rhine cruise begin at just US$3,260 per person, and with all that Scenic offers, that’s quite a value for an 8-day cruise.
Want to join me? To secure one of the five cabins available, you’ll need to make a non-refundable $750 per person deposit by February 28, 2018.
Scenic strives to be the most inclusive of all river cruise companies. So naturally gratuities and 24/7 bar is included, but also laundry service and nearly everything else you can think of. The ships are beautiful with gorgeous staterooms. There are also multiple dining venues.
