Scenic Aura

Scenic Azure

Launched in April 2016, the sleek, modern Scenic Azure was custom-built to sail Portugal’s lock-filled Douro river. With just 96 passengers on board, the stylish vessel packs a real punch and has something on every level to surprise and delight guests. A stately cruise with Scenic Azure will sail past verdant vineyards, quaint Mediterranean towns and overflowing olive groves. Get ready to see the waterways of Portugal and Northern Spain in complete luxury.


Spacious Suites

Each generous cabin onboard Scenic Azure is perfectly proportioned to guarantee guests the ultimate in relaxation. Expect comfortable queen-size beds (with soft, cotton linens), satellite TV, luxurious bathrooms (complete with L’Occitane toiletries) as well as clever under-bed storage and ample wardrobe space. Most cabins come complete with a balcony that uses state-of-the-art technology to transform into a private conservatory, perfect for watching the world sail by. Couple this with a personal butler and a 1:2 crew-to-guest ratio, and you can be sure to enjoy stress-free getaways.

Fine dining

At just 80-metres long, Scenic Azure certainly manages to punch above its weight when it comes to dining options. With six different dining opportunities onboard, Scenic Azure ensures you will never go hungry. From the simple yet delicious buffet breakfasts to the six-course à la carte gastronomical delights of the Table D’or restaurants, the food is second to none. The chefs use fresh ingredients locally sourced from local ports. Guests should be sure to enjoy a tapas lunch with flamenco entertainment when the ship stops off at Salamanca.
