Scenic Cruises Truly All-Inclusive Luxury Includes Almost Everything

Betty and Herb Tinley are excited to announce they will be hosting their 3rdannual Scenic River Cruise on the beautiful Rhine River, and are looking forward to you joining them.  Sailing September 6, 2017 from Amsterdam, Netherlands on the scenery filled Rhine River, we’ll not only have the full experience of Amsterdam, but our next two ports of call will be in Germany exploring the magnificent city of Cologne, followed by a stop in Koblenz and a fairy tale tour of Cochem and the Reichsburg Castle. From here we will continue to enjoy the scenery on our way to Rudesheim as we sail through the World Heritage listed Rhine Gorge. This afternoon participate in the tasting of regional wines. 

Then, on to Mannheim to visit the spectacular Heidelberg Castle. This evening we are invited guests at an impeccable baroque-period palace for cocktails and a private classical concert. This will be one of the highlights of your vacation. From here we head to Strasbourg, France where tour options include a tour of the city and its famous cathedral, shopping with the Chef in the local market, wine tasting, or a visit to Hansel and Gretel settings in the Black Forest. Once back onboard we head to Basel, Switzerland where we disembark and say good-by to the Rhine River and the Scenic Crystal.

Herb and Betty are excited to introduce you  to the extraordinary pleasures of river cruising with Scenic Cruises.  They know firsthand that Scenic Cruise is the premier river cruising company delivering the “best value” in the river cruising industry. While others say they are “all inclusive”, each of the others has surprises with extra expenses. Scenic Cruises delivers what they promise as an all inclusive cruise line. At no time will you ever receive an “alternate charge” or be expected to tip on any of the ship’s venues. (This includes tour guides and bus drivers too.) Dollar for dollar, Scenic Cruises is unequaled in value and service.

Sound exciting? It is!  Call Herb or Betty at 800-959-7447 or 239-275-1717 to review all the details and secure your stateroom.  Remember, the ships are small and availability is limited!
