Earlybird incentives including the opportunity to fly to and from Europe for free on Scenic river cruise bookings of 15 days or longer in 2017 are expiring soon, so the line is now encouraging travellers not to miss out and to secure their space soon. A further bonus of $600 off the price per couple is also available if paying a deposit on a cabin by 31 May 2016.

The company’s fleet of ‘Space Ships’ in Europe offer a fully inclusive river cruise experience, with a number of dining options onboard and all drinks included throughout the cruise as well. Fares also include all tipping, gratuities and entry fees for off-ship excusions. Scenic often says guests can practically leave their wallet at home, with no credit card requested at check-in either.

Scenic’s 15-day ‘Jewels of Europe’ is valid for the booking incentives, priced from $6,695 per person twin share. This cruise travels between Amsterdam and Budapest along the Rhine, Main and Danube Rivers. Bookings of this itinerary will come with free return flights from Australia in Economy Class.
