The brochure includes Scenic’s new River Cruise Collection broken into three categories: Epicurean Delights, Nature’s Wonders and Seasonal Delights. Epicurean Delights features cooking classes, wine tasting and meetings with local purveyors. Nature’s Wonders brings guests to stunning European landscapes including gardens and castles. Seasonal Delights explores popular seasonal traditions from Christmas markets to spring tulip blooms.


Scenic offers two new itineraries for its 2024 schedule. The 10-day Danube in Depth explores the culture and history of historic cities along the Danube River. The eight-day Iconic Danube also explores the popular river with the option of a three-night Prague extension.


The cruise line allows guests to select the destination and activities that best fit their interests through its Freechoice experiences. There are more than 50 new experiences available for 2024.


“As travel continues to grow again, our guests are requesting longer cruises itineraries and deeper cultural experiences, to truly create unforgettable stories for life,” said Ken Muskat, managing director, Scenic Group USA. “With more than 56 new Scenic Enrich and Freechoice experiences, new Danube itineraries and a new way to choose the perfect European cruises, 2024 promises to be focused on tailoring our ultra-luxury river cruises uniquely to our guests.”
