Scenic is proud to announce a new partnership with National Geographic Expeditions to launch the new National Geographic River Cruise departures. These new offerings will combine Scenic’s all-inclusive luxury river cruise experience with National Geographic's 130-year legacy of science, conservation, and exploration to create a truly unforgettable experience for travelers.
When you embark on each of our National Geographic River Cruise sailings, you will be accompanied by a National Geographic expert who will give talks throughout the week and join guests on shore excursions. A National Geographic photographer will also be on board Scenic's Europe sailings to share techniques and help guests hone their photography skills. In addition to the all-inclusive amenities and activities on these departures, guests will have their choice of new Scenic Freechoice excursions developed in collaboration with National Geographic, from hikes and bike rides to in-depth learning experiences that focus on the natural world, culture, and history.
Whether you're traversing the great rivers of Europe or discovering the lesser-plied waters of the Irrawaddy, a National Geographic River Cruise by Scenic is sure to leave you with vivid memories and an experience unlike any other.
