CRUISE NEWS: A little update on Scenic

If the recent Tour de France has got you in the mood for a European pedal, then Scenic has increased the number of its cycling options on its ‘Freechoice’ shore excursions. There are now 27 self-guided cycling tours which passengers can do using one of 30 on-board bicycles carried on every ‘Space-Ship’ category river ship in Europe. Among the offerings is a pedal along a lovely stretch of the Austrian Danube between Melk and Dürnstein, or cycling along the Rhone River in France between Tournon to Glun, with views of the Alps and riverside vineyards.

And for something completely different, anyone hankering after a snowy Christmas – or at least a cold and light-twinkled one – then Scenic is offering Christmas-themed river cruises starting from late November. Its 15-day ‘Christmas Markets’ cruise between Amsterdam and Budapest takes in festive sights and sounds such as old towns draped with Christmas lights, shopping for gifts and decorations, and visits to traditional markets in Cologne, Rothenberg, Nuremberg and Vienna. There’s also a 16-day cruise for those who want to spend Christmas Day itself (as well as New Year’s Eve) in Europe. Sounds like just the reason to be jolly.

  2. Dear Admin,
    I visite your website, its extremely impressive, I love it.
    When you travel to Lima, Peru there is an overwhelming choice of side trips. While many people focus on Peru's archaelogical ruins, you shouldn't overlook the jungle.
