Can Scenic arrange my passport and visas?
Scenic cannot arrange a passport or visas on your behalf, but our experienced booking representatives may be able to advise you on the type of visas and documentation you need when visiting certain countries.
Your passport must be valid for six months beyond the conclusion of your trip. Please check your passport before departure, and give yourself time to apply for a new one if this is required. Also, if the nationality on your passport differs from the country in which you currently reside, contact your local consulate to ensure you have the right documents for travel. Your holiday may be disrupted if you cannot provide valid documents at airports and border crossings.
Can Scenic organize my travel insurance?
No, Scenic is unable to provide travel insurance. We'd recommend that you arrange insurance cover that best suits your circumstances, and covers you in the event of unforeseen circumstances. It’s also a good idea to take any documents relating to your insurance with you when you depart.
Does Scenic accommodate those with special dietary requirements?
Yes, Scenic accommodates special dietary requirements to the best of our ability across our river and ocean cruises and escorted tours. If you have special dietary requests, please notify us at the time of booking and inform your Cruise Director when you arrive.
Please note: while we endeavour to accommodate all dietary requirements, special requests are not guaranteed and failure to meet any request is not a breach of contract on our behalf.
What clothing do I need to pack?
There are no specific pieces of clothing we insist you pack, however we can offer pieces of advice, based upon your itinerary. We recommend comfortable walking shoes for sightseeing, as well as any garments, such as hats, gloves and water-resistant jackets, which will help you to stay comfortable whatever the weather. The dress code across all Scenic cruise and tour itineraries is casual and comfortable. Dinner attire is smart casual — open-neck shirts, trousers and dresses; you may wear a jacket or blazer with a tie, but it is not required.
What is included when I book a cruise or tour?
Scenic river cruises include an all-inclusive promise. Fine dining, complimentary beverages, breathtaking excursions, return flights, transfers, on board Wi-Fi, porterage, port charges and taxes are all included. And with no hidden extras to worry about throughout your cruise, you can virtually leave your wallet at home.
For the full list of inclusions when booking a Scenic tour, please refer to your itinerary or contact our dedicated sales team.
What is the standard baggage allowance?
You are entitled to carry one suitcase per person with the total sum of its length, width and height not exceeding 30 x 21 x 11in, and a maximum weight not exceeding 50lbs (airline dependent). Overweight or oversize items will not be carried. However, some ships may permit additional baggage at your cost. Personal and valuable items such as make-up, cameras, medication or money/currency should be carried in a separate travel bag.
This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
