Pleasant Holidays and its luxury brand, Journese, announced they will add Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours to their portfolio of cruise offerings effective January 14, 2019. Scenic features ultimate, all-inclusive luxury river and ocean cruise itineraries with immersive experiences. Pleasant Holidays has also added Emerald Waterways’ value-focused, affordable luxury river cruises. Both Scenic and Emerald Waterways feature thoughtfully crafted itineraries and intimate state-of-the-art ships with panoramic views, boutique hotel styling and water-view accommodations.
“We are proud to partner with Scenic and Emerald Waterways. Our Scenic Luxury Cruises product features a fleet of river cruise ships traversing the waterways of Europe, Russia and Asia; and the Scenic Eclipse for ocean voyages that explore the sunny ports of the Mediterranean Sea or the Arctic fjords of Norway to see the Northern Lights,” said Jack E. Richards, president and CEO. “These are truly all-inclusive cruises with a wide range of luxury services and amenities, from butler service, top-shelf beverages and immersive guided shore excursions to roundtrip airport transfers, gourmet dining, onboard gratuities, Wi-Fi and more.”
Pleasant Holidays’ Emerald Waterways product will focus on the brand’s deluxe river cruises in Europe, Russia and Asia. Offering exceptional value for the travel dollar, cruises include roundtrip airport transfers; gourmet dining; selection of wine, beer and soft drinks with lunch and dinner; unique cultural experiences; standard guided shore excursions; onboard gratuities and more.
