Scenic receives National Order of Merit Medal

The Scenic Group, parent company of Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours, Evergreen Cruises and Tours and Scenic Eclipse, have announced they have received the National Order of Merit Medal during a special Bastille Day industry luncheon celebration in Sydney.

This prestigious Medal was presented by Mr Patrick Benhamou, Regional Manager ATOUT France and was awarded to Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours, in recognition of the long term commitment in driving tourism to France.

France has always been an important destination for Australians traveling to Europe. To develop this market, Scenic has invested in 3 Space-Ships and 1 Emerald Waterways Star-Ship to cruise the beautiful waterways of Southern of France, the Seine and the Bordeaux regions. Recognising the passion the rest of the world has for our French cuisine, Scenic was the first to create an exclusive on board cooking school – Scenic Cullinaire, giving its guests the opportunity to experiment and explore the unique culinary experiences that only France has to offer.

“We are honoured to be presented this prestigious medal whilst celebrating a day of such national significance to the French people. In the years since we commenced operations we have brought tens of thousands of guests from around the world travel to France, to experience all of the cultural, historic, culinary delights and beauty this country has in abundance”, said Anthony Laver, Scenic Group General Manager of Marketing, Australasia.
