Building on its successful 2018 season, Scenic has released its 2019/2020 South East Asia brochure with an extended program of cruising through Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar on board the luxury all-balcony suite ships, Scenic Aura and Scenic Spirit.
Designed to encapsulate the essence of South East Asia, Scenic’s small boutique vessels represent a stylish connection between tradition and innovation. They are among the most luxurious ships sailing the Mekong and Irrawaddy rivers, and have been designed to ensure a world-class experience. Catering for just 68 and 44 guests respectively with an almost 1:1 staff to guest ratio, Scenic Spirit and Scenic Aura offer an intimate cruise experience and feature world-class facilities. From the Sun Deck and bar, resort-style pool complete with flow jets, sumptuous spa and wellness centre, state-of-the-art gym and beauty salon, and an outdoor cinema – every conceivable need has been catered for.
Scenic Spirit and Scenic Aura are the only ships on the Mekong and Irrawaddy rivers to feature the famous Scenic Slumber beds, the only all-balcony suite ships with no porthole cabins, and they feature the largest kitchens of any river going vessel in South East Asia, and on board guest laundries.
In addition, Scenic Spirit is the only ship on the Mekong to feature a guest elevator, a sauna and a steam room, with both an outdoor Jacuzzi and full-sized bath as features of its Royal Panorama suite. Scenic Aura is the only ship on the Irrawaddy with a Teppanyaki station.
“The quality fittings, decor and finishes on our ships in South East Asia are what really set us apart,” says Liz Glover, Director of Marketing and Strategy for Scenic. “We can proudly and honestly say our ships are truly unique in the level of luxury, safety, design and quality inclusions that we bring to this region.”
Scenic’s signature Enrich experiences also provide a point of difference, offering once in a lifetime opportunities and special moments not available to the ordinary traveller such as the Angkor Temple Gala Dinner in Siem Reap, or discovering the magic of Shwedagan Pagoda at sunset, Yangon.
