Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours is taking on full management of its entire river ship fleet cruising all of Europe’s rivers (Rhine, Main, Danube, Saône, Rhône, Seine and Douro) in 2020.
“Scenic has been managing six vessels in the fleet internally since 2017, with G&P Cruise Hotel Management handling a further five,” said Rob Voss, COO Scenic Group.
“The decision to take back the management function of these five ships is not related to performance. G&P and their crews have done a marvelous job delivering the desired guest experience as can be seen by the very high guest satisfaction survey results, regularly running at 95%. Instead this decision is the next logical step in delivery on a global brand, and the necessity for absolute product consistency and delivery across the entire fleet.”
The Scenic Group will also benefit from increased purchasing power to source ingredients, as well as directly employ and manage the entire hospitality crew.
