A surge in demand has prompted luxury cruise line, Scenic, to release part of its 2023 European river sailings programme for early booking.

The early access provides greater flexibility for guests, allowing more availability on preferred itineraries, suite category and sailing day before the full collection is released. New bookings will also benefit from generous launch savings and early booking discounts.

Guests booking before 30 September 2021 can save up to £1,400 per couple on cruises sailing the Rhine, Main and Danube, the rivers of France and the waterways of Russia, while those booking Portugal itineraries will save up to £1,200 per couple.
