To celebrate Getaway’s 25th birthday, Scenic is giving away a trip of a lifetime!

One lucky viewer will win 25 days of all-inclusive luxury Europe River Cruising with Scenic valued at over $44,000.

Starting 1 April until 30 April 2017, Getaway viewers will be able to enter online to win Getaway and Scenic’s 25 days for 25 years river cruise promotion.

The prize, Getaway’s largest ever, is 25 consecutive days of river cruising for two people. The journey begins in Paris on 5 October 2018 on the 11 Day Gems of the Seine, followed by the 15 Day Jewels of Europe between Amsterdam and Budapest departing Monday 15 October 2018.

The prize includes two economy airfares from select Australian airports to Paris then returning to Australia from Budapest. In order to join the second cruise, winners will be flown from Paris to Amsterdam. All ground transfers between the ships and European airports are also included.

Scenic’s Gems of the Seine is an 11 day round trip journey from Paris. The Seine cuts through the heart of Paris, before winding its way along some of the most celebrated sites in northern France. This cruise showcases some of the most celebrated sites from the Somme battlefields to Monet’s house and gardens.

Winners then fly from Paris to Amsterdam to enjoy Scenic’s Jewels of Europe, a 15 day river cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest. A region steeped in the history of ancient trade routes, today the Rhine, Maine and Danube rivers, this journey showcases the Europe of one’s imagination, recalling cobbled streets, grand palaces and fairytale castles.

Cruising on Scenic’s 5-star Space-Ships is quite simply the indulgence of a lifetime. With some of the largest suites available, and a host of indulgent amenities at their disposal, these beautiful vessels provide the ultimate river cruise experience.

From the moment guests step on board, they will enjoy the ultimate in all-inclusive luxury every moment of the day. Did we mention butler service for each and every guest is also included?

The prize will be drawn Tuesday 2 May 2017 and the winner will be notified Friday 5 May 2017. The winner’s name will be announced on air on Getaway on Saturday 6 May and their name will be published in The Australian newspaper Tuesday 9 May 2017.
