A Cruise to Paris on the Scenic Gem

by cruise agent Yvette Mitchell

I  recently returned from a Seine River cruise round trip out of Paris, France. I found the Scenic River cruises a perfect example for how you get there is as important as where you’re going. I was aboard the Scenic Gem which was purposely built for the Seine River. Due to its shallow hull design, it is able to navigate from Paris all the way to the port of Honfleur. Most other river cruise vessels must dock further away. This is just the first amazing detail I am excited to share with you.

While on vacation have you ever felt completely taken care of?   The Scenic cruise experience is designed to do just this. Carefully crafted luxurious services and exclusive enrichments sets them apart. All details are taken care of from the moment you exit the customs hall at your arrival airport.  A host will meet you, escort you to a private car transfer, and take you directly to the ship. Once at the dock, a Scenic crew member greets you and walks you through a quick check-in. Next a butler escorts you to your stateroom. Your pampering has begun! 

It is time to enjoy! Premium beverages, superb dining, excursions, and an amazing crew make each day a pleasure. You will be assigned your own personal butler. Butlers are assigned to every cabin with the level of service dependent upon your cabin category. All of the guatuties are already included. 

Scenic attracts well-traveled, slightly younger clientele with more passengers in their 40s and 50s than on most river cruises. It is an Australian-owned cruise line, and I feel this is a big reason for the warm atmosphere you’ll experience with the crew. On my cruise, my fellow shipmates were primarily from Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States which was an added level of enjoyment. The more I travel the world, the more I realize we are all connected as citizens of Earth.

Sailing with Scenic is more than a 5-star river cruise. It will transport you away from everyday life to a carefree, relaxing, enriching, rather pampered world.

I have experienced several different European rivers and look forward to assisting you with a trip of a lifetime!
