All being newly built, Scenic's "space ships" (trademarked design) feature staterooms with open-air balconies, all suite-category cabins and luxury hotel amenities. The complimentary specialty dining and all-inclusive drinks are another perk to prefer booking Scenic cruise deals.

The list of Scenic-operated river travel destinations includes Europe’s largest rivers - Danube and Rhine, connected via Main-Danube Canal. Since 2016, Scenic Tours also offer Douro River cruises (in Portugal and Spain). Being a major player on the travel market in Australia and New Zealand, Scenic Tours also has booking centers in Europe (Switzerland and the UK) and North America (USA and Canada).

In 2018, to the fleet was added the luxury yacht Scenic Eclipse operating on polar expedition cruises to Antarctica and also in Europe (Mediterranean Sea).

Scenic Cruises' Christmas Market voyages take passengers on either Danube or Rhine through traditional European Christmas Markets. These markets take place annually during Advent and offer various dining, shopping and entertainment experiences. Popular destinations include Vienna’s Christkindlmarkt, which is held on the square in front of the City Hall; Nuremberg’s market dating back to 1628; and Cologne’s  array of toy stalls, fairytales and puppet theatres, as well as the biggest Christmas tree in Rhineland. 

The luxury cruise line offers all-inclusive packages with fare covering all onboard meals, suite cabins, butler services, all gratuities, complimentary and unlimited beverages, expert tour guides, Scenic Freechoice activities and Enrichspecial events.
