Scenic Cruises, a subsidiary of Scenic Tours, has added a seven-night itinerary on France's Rhône and Saône Rivers to its European program for 2013. The voyage from Chalon-sur-Saône to Arles is being combined with Scenic's existing seven-night itinerary from Amsterdam to Basel, with a coach connection between the two. During the transfer from Basel to Chalon-sur-Saône , passengers will visit Beaune, the historic wine capital of Burgundy.

Highlights of the cruise and its shore excursions include dinner in the home of a French family near Tournon, a visit to a winery in the Beaujolais village of Oignt, riding on electrical-assist bicycles along the Rhine River near Koblenz, and an insider tour of the Hockenheim Formula 1 track.

Fares include unlimited beverages, all meals, private butler service, Wi-Fi, airport transfers, shore excursions, private concerts and performances, and all tips on board or on shore. 

The 14-night cruise package is priced from US $6,290 to $10,240 per person for American guests, with free flights for U.S. residents who book standard staterooms by September 30, 2012. (Departures are in March, April, and September.)
