Scenic Tours is celebrating the new addition to its current fleet of 13 luxury cruise ships by offering Earlybird deals for bookings made on Scenic Spirit cruises by 30 April 2015. One offer is the inclusion of free return flights to Asia – a saving of up to $3,190 per couple.
Scenic Spirit, launching January 2016, will aim to be at the forefront of Asia cruising by delivering a state-of-the-art design and multi-day tours along the Mekong River.
The 5-star Scenic Spirit will focus on a more personal style of cruising, providing a 1:1 guest-to-staff ratio. Only 68 guests will be housed on board the 85-metre ship, which will include two Royal Panorama suites at 80 square metres each – the largest suites on a Mekong River cruise – with private outdoor terrace and Jacuzzi.
At the very least, guests in the Deluxe Suites will have 32 square metres of space to relax in, along with a Scenic Sun Lounge with river views.
Glen Moroney, Chairman at Scenic Tours, says he is excited about bringing Scenic’s signature brand of all-inclusive luxury river cruising to South East Asia. "We are proud to be launching a ship that brings our renowned European shipbuilding standards and an unprecedented level of luxury to the Mekong. This really is a key milestone for the business. We cannot wait to share Scenic Spirit with our guests in 2016."
With an emphasis on comfort, every guest will have access to complimentary beverages and a private butler, along with a laundry and elevator between decks – not offered on any other Mekong River cruise.
Onboard facilities and entertainment will include four dining options, resort-style pool, open-air cinema, fitness and wellness centre and a library.
Scenic Spirit’s cruise itineraries will cover a variety of locations along the Mekong including Bangkok, Ho Chi Minh City, Siem Reap, Hanoi and Luang Prabang over the course of eight- to 27-day cruises.
Scenic Tours will offer their trademark Scenic FreeChoice activities and Scenic Enrich special events on the Scenic Spirit, allowing guests to personalise their enriched cruising experience. Expert guides will also be available for on-shore excursions.
Scenic Tours also runs cruises around the world including Russia and throughout Europe.
