Review of Scenic Azure

The Scenic Azure boat cruises on Douro River in Portugal. Scenic Azure is among the most luxurious and newest Douro River cruise ships. The boat is owned and operated by Scenic Tours. Being the first river line to have its own vessel on the Portuguese cruising market, Scenic stands among the best river cruise companies in Europe with various itineraries and all inclusive fares.

Scenic Azure cruise ship, Douro River, Portugal All Scenic Tours cruises are all-inclusive deals. These boats are bigger in size but with smaller guest capacity compared to standard-design riverboats sailing in Europe. This new design (patented as "space ships") allows bigger river cruise cabins and most spacious and comfortable public areas. A signature feature of all Scenic Cruises "space ships" are the cabin balconies called “Sun Lounges”. These are outdoor terraces which easily convert into indoor lounge areas.

Scenic Azure has only 48 staterooms and 4 passenger decks. The ship boasts two restaurants (with gourmet dining options), shaded top-deck with swimming pool, served terrace and sitting area, Gym & Spa wellness facilities, an elevator. On all (price-inclusive) Scenic cruise tours and excursions ashore, guests receive GPS tracking devices ("ScenicTailorMade") with uploaded digital maps. They double as listening devices for the live narration by the line's local expert tour guides provided on all group travel excursions. Binoculars and bicycles are also provided complimentary to fully enjoy the scenery everywhere along the cruise itineraries and land tour routes.

Scenic river cruise deals are among the industry's most all-inclusive. All meals, drinks (except the French Champagne and highest-end liquors), excursions, butler service and Internet are included in the fares. Even the drinks in cabins' mini-bars are complimentary. Scenic Tours cruises traditionally attract travelers from Australia and the UK, with a constantly growing number of Americans, Canadians and Germans. Passengers are 55+, financially comfortable and well traveled.

Scenic Azure cruise prices are per person and based on double occupancy. These are only indicative Scenic Cruises Portugal rates. They might be different when you book your Scenic Tours Douro river cruisetour deals, influenced by travel agency promotions, special offers and discounts, group travel booking or last-minute deals rates.
