Specialty Cruising - Part 2

Scenic Tours is equally luxurious, but not quite so food-focused. On these floating luxury hotels, music and art are as important to the program as food and wine. For people who might not want another wine-soaked lunch along the Rhine, there are complimentary bicycles to borrow from the ship once docked in key destinations, and GPS devices to help you sightsee solo. The point is to always give guests easy access to a destination so they can experience the alleys of Basel or the villages along the Aegean coastline at their own pace.
