National Geographic Expeditions and Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours have joined forces to launch a new line of National Geographic River Cruises. The new offering combines Scenic’s all-inclusive luxury river cruise experience with National Geographic’s 129-year legacy of science, conversation and exploration for a both upscale and fascinating cruise.
“We are excited and proud to align ourselves with a brand as historic and well-respected as National Geographic,” said Glen Moroney, chairman of Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours. “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.”
A National Geographic expert will accompany each cruise to deliver educational presentations and informal discussions throughout the trip. Passengers can also learn professional photography tips from the on board National Geographic photographer.
The cruises will offer experiential excursions to choose from, such as hikes and bike rides, as well as in-depth learning experiences that focus on the natural world, culture and history.
Guests can choose from sailings in Europe on the Rhine, Danube, Main and Moselle Rivers. Departures begin in 2018 and can be booked through National Geographic Expeditions at www.natgeoexpeditions.com/rivercruises or through Scenic Cruises at www.scenicusa.com/nat-geo.
