About Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours

Scenic Tours are renowned as being the premiere European river cruise company as well as the leading touring company to Canada and Alaska. Other destinations include Russia, Asia including China, India, Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos as well as South America, Central America and Antarctica. Even destinations across the Middle East including Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Syria and Dubai have all been added to Scenic Tours expansive international touring programs. 2008 hailed the beginning of a new chapter for Scenic Tours, with the launch of their exclusive Scenic "Space-Ships" for Europe. The Scenic "Space-Ships" unique design, were like no other ships on Europe’s waterways. Reminiscent of the facilities of an Ocean Liner, the ships boasted private balcony suites for more than 80% of their cabins, more space than any other river cruise ships and offered a choice of dining and private butler service. Scenic Tours were the first river cruise ships in Europe to be 100% owned and operated by an Australian company. In July 2008, the first ships Scenic Sapphire and Scenic Emerald were launched, followed by the Scenic Diamond and Scenic Ruby in 2009 and the Scenic Pearl in 2011. Scenic Tours is still proudly owned by Glen Moroney, employing staff and tour crew world-wide. Scenic Tours can now certainly claim its place as a truly global tour company.

Health & Safety Guidelines

Our Commitment to your Health & Safety

Whilst the world may have changed, our commitment to the extraordinary all-inclusive travel experience, our guest’s and crew’s health, safety and wellbeing remains our key priority.  

We are working closely with Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), local and international Government Health agencies, to ensure our protocols exceed the latest regulatory requirements. Our Health & Safety Steering Committee oversees all health and safety policies and training with Scenic, ensuring you can travel with complete confidence that your wellbeing and safety are taken care of to the highest standard. In addition, we are implementing the most recent insights and technologies, with our Scenic Group team dedicated to exceeding the levels of cleanliness required in today’s travel climate.  

We are continuously updating our protocols to safeguard both the health, safety and the experience of our valued guests. You will be informed about these important procedures, well in advance of your journey departure, which may include the following information and guidelines: 

A safe start to your Journey - Medical Evaluation & Test

To ensure all of our guests are safe and well before your journey with us begins, we will require you to complete pre-departure medical health evaluation. During the phased embarkation process you, and your fellow passengers, will be tested for COVID-19 by a medical specialist. This will allow you to relax with complete peace-of-mind when you board our Space-Ships, in the company of other like-minded travellers.

Our expertly trained team

Our Dedicated Team

Our Captains, Hotel Managers and Cruise Directors, alongside their exceptional teams, will deliver a first-class level of service during your time travelling with us. You can enjoy the same exciting program of onboard and onshore experiences, tailored to smaller groups to allow for safe social distancing. The team are readily available to ensure every detail of your journey with us is memorable, for all the right reasons. They will ensure health and safety protocols are followed on a daily basis.

Healthy Crew

Having the best crew to look after you is at the heart of our core values at Scenic Group, and we will go the extra mile to ensure our crew is healthy in doing so. All crew will be regularly tested for COVID-19 and will have daily temperature and health checks. They will also be trained and regularly briefed on all aspects in preventing COVID-19 amongst themselves as well as our guests. They will go beyond the ordinary to make your cruise a truly exceptional experience.

A warm & safe Welcome

Contact-Free Check In & Check Out

We have adjusted the various touchpoints of your journey, allowing you to check-in and check out in a completely contact-free way. Through phased embarkation, you will be able to arrive and depart from your Space-Ship smoothly and with safe social proximity in mind. And, of course, every time you return to your Space-Ship, our crew will be there to greet you with a warm smile.

Briefings & Screenings

Our medical expert will host mandatory briefings and screenings. These events are designed to ensure every member of our guests and crew are healthy, and also offer an opportunity to allay any concerns or ask any questions you may have about our safety protocols.  

The on board experience

At Scenic, the guest experience will always remain at the heart of everything we do. In addition to our long-standing exceptional level of service on board, you can expect:

Enhanced Cleaning Commitment

Our on board crew will be increasing and enhancing our already frequent and high standard cleaning protocols in public areas and suites, leaving surfaces and spaces spotless. Additional care and attention will be paid to high contact zones, such as communal restrooms and dining facilities. 

Contact-Free Movement

The spacious surrounds of our ships in combination with the guest numbers provide ample room for you to relax, allowing for an abundance of personal space. We are introducing contact-free movement across our Space-Ships to further reduce risks. Contact-free hand sanitiser dispensers will be readily available in all public spaces and guest corridors on board, whilst automated doors and contact-free guest servicing will minimise the number of touchpoints. 

Socially Aware Dining

You can expect the same delightful dining experiences when you travel with us, savouring a choice of dishes inspired by regional cuisine and local produce. We are adapting and redesigning our on board food and beverage service to ensure extra care is taken in order to minimise social contact. We will serve our delicious food a la carte or via served buffets. 

Air Circulation

Our Space-Ships are equipped with air circulation systems. These systems ensure there is no re-circulation of inside air on board the ship. When you are relaxing in your suite you will be breathing air from outside the ship that is channelled directly to your suite. The air will also be released from your suite directly to the outside. 

Staying well on shore

Smaller Groups & Social Proximity

Discovering the local culture of your destination is the highlight of every river cruise. Create memories to cherish during our choice of onshore excursions. You will travel in smaller groups, allowing for a more intimate travel experience, whilst respecting social proximity and destination-specific regulations. To enhance your sightseeing, you can utilise our digital headsets, which will act as your personal tour guide and travel map.

Trusted local partners

Carefully Selected Local Partners

As well as enhancing our health and safety protocols on board and with our crew, we’re working closely with our local partners. We have forged long-standing relationships with our local partners, all of whom have been carefully selected for their expertise and high levels of service, and are committed to ensuring your safety. They will receive extensive training to adhere with our enhanced protocols. We will also introduce strict control and screening procedures for anyone boarding our Space-Ships.

Wellness Throughout Your Journey

Your wellbeing is our number one priority, both during your time on board and on shore. Journey to and from your destination with complete peace-of-mind. All transport vehicles will be equipped with hand sanitiser and will undergo deep cleaning after every journey, surpassing the high industry standards required. You can also rest assured that we will monitor social proximity, allowing you to travel safely, with plenty of personal space.

We are committed to continually reviewing and updating our protocols and guidelines as new information becomes available, to ensure that our guests can travel safely in the many destinations we operate in.
