Scenic Luxury Cruises have teamed up with National Geographic to launch a new line of National Geographic River Cruises, which will combine Scenic’s all-inclusive river cruise experience, with National Geographic’s 129-year legacy of science, conservation and exploration.
Each sailing will be accompanied by a National Geographic expert who will enrich the experience through educational presentations and informal discussions throughout the journey. European cruises will also see a National Geographic photographer onboard, who will share their photo taking techniques and help guests improve their photography skills.
Guests will also have a menu of rich, experiential excursions to choose from, which will consist of anything from hiking and bike rides to in-depth learning focusing on the natural world, culture and history.
Glen Moroney, chairman of Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours, said: “We are excited and proud to align ourselves with a brand as historic and well respected as National Geographic.We believe Scenic’s dedication to providing guests with the most exceptional five-star, all-inclusive river cruise experience available is a perfect complement to the enriching and authentic experiences for which National Geographic Expeditions is known.”
“Our trips are designed to celebrate remarkable destinations, to foster genuine interactions with local cultures, and to promote a deeper understanding of the natural world,” said Nancy Schumacher, head of Travel and Tour Operations for National Geographic. “Bringing river cruises into our portfolio allows our travelers to reach spectacular parts of the world in a unique way. We are pleased to partner with Scenic, as they share our commitment to delivering outstanding experiences to guests.”
The partnership between Scenic and National Geographic will offer numerous sailings in Europe on the Danube, Main, Moselle and Rhine Rivers.
