Luxury river cruise specialists Scenic Cruises has launched its new 2024 all-inclusive luxury European river cruise collection, which contains more than 250 cruises, including extended voyages and commemorations to mark 80 years since D-Day.
Scenic Cruises has unveiled its Europe River Cruising 2024 Early Access Brochure showcasing its itineraries of over 250 voyages. The company is expanding its programme of sailings to match demand from the public who are seeking holidays offering true luxury and relaxation.
Two of the highlights for 2024 are two new Danube River cruises, with an optional post-cruise city stay feature allowing you to see the beauty of the cities from the river and then spend longer onshore exploring.
10-day Danube in-depth river cruise
Float through Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary on a fabulous indulgent vessel. Board the Scenic Jasper boat and sail between Nuremberg and Budapest if you choose the ten-day Danube in Depth cruise voyages. Scenic Cruises has 20 departures between April and October 2024, with the new cruise having more daytime sailings allowing you more time to experience the Danube.
You will also have extra time to immerse yourself in iconic locations and activities on the shore. The stunning Czech city of Český Krumlov and its iconic 13th-century Gothic castle are must-visit. If you wish to explore further, you can extend your holiday, staying in either the Czech capital of Prague or the cities of Zagreb and Ljubljana.
Prices for this cruise between Nuremberg and Budapest begin at £3,750 based on an 11 October 2024 departure.
The eight-day Iconic Danube River cruise
