View Cruises
In 2021 our partnership with National Geographic will offer special itineraries through Europe, including Portugal’s Douro Valley and the mighty Volga River in Russia. They will combine our luxury river cruise experience with National Geographic’s legacy of science, conservation and exploration to create unforgettable experiences.

Scenic’s shared passion for discovery, curiosity about history, a fascination for the world’s cultures has led to this partnership with National Geographic Expeditions, to offer unique river cruise expeditions.

On board each river cruise, a National Geographic Expert will share their knowledge and insights, through fascinating presentations and informal discussions. A National Geographic Photographer will also join our Expedition river cruising itineraries to provide photography tips. 

A portion of the profits from these river cruises will be donated to the National Geographic Society, which supports researchers and experts engaged in protecting and preserving the planet and its various species and populations.
