Scenic has announced a new partnership with luxury tour operator Classic Vacations. Classic Vacations said that Scenic's new Space-Ships and inclusive fares were factors in the decision.
The partnership with Classic Vacations continues the expansion of the Scenic brand in North America, started four years ago. Scenic said it has seen North American sales increases in triple digits year over year.
Inclusions on Scenic fares range from personalized service with a low guest to staff ratio, unlimited beverages (including premium wines and spirits), all meals at any of six dining options, and personal butler service, to all excursions, events and entertainment; from Wi-Fi and airport transfers to all tipping and gratuities on board and ashore. On-board river highlights and on-shore experiences have an included Scenic Tailormade handheld GPS guided tour system provided to every guest. Every ship includes the line’s Sun Lounge technology – where the walkout open-air balcony can convert to an all-weather lounge, expanding the living area of the stateroom.
Scenic offers escorted tours in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, the Americas and elsewhere, as well as offering all-inclusive river cruises in Europe and, in 2016, the Mekong, Irrawaddy and Douro.
