Don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience a luxury cruise on the Douro River in Portugal offered by the Foundation and Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours!
Scenic launched the custom-built luxury Space-Ship, the Scenic Azure, in April 2016 as one of the only owner-operated river cruise ships on the Douro with sailings that both begin and end in Porto. At 260 ft. long and only 48 cabins, this is the next-generation of river ships designed with only one purpose: to navigate the calm waters of the Douro and its short and narrow locks, vineyard-covered gorges and abundance of incredible scenery.
The 5-star Scenic Azure boasts the same truly all-inclusive luxury experience synonymous with the all Scenic Space-Ships – a 1:2 staff-to-guest ratio; private butler service and unlimited complimentary beverages and spirits; full-size private balcony staterooms which come equipped with Scenic’s Sun Lounge technology – a unique system where the walkout open-air balcony converts to an all-weather lounge with a push of a button; a vitality pool on the Sun Deck and a guest elevator between decks, wellness area and fitness center. On board cuisine allows for up to six dining options, including the tradition of dégustation at Table d’Or, fine dining at Portobellos and the more casual fare at the River Café. As with all Scenic river cruises, guests will never have to reach for the wallet or purse as everything (except a haircut or massage) is included: tips and gratuities, expert local guides, all Scenic FreeChoice activities that allow for a more personalized vacation, plus Scenic Enrich events which are exclusive to Scenic and its guests.

RMKS/1. Sailors, Marines, and Civilian Teammates, it is with great
excitement and humility that I take on the role as your 76th Secretary of
the Navy. The excitement is born from the challenges and opportunities that
we face now and in the near future. Due to your consistent ability to
successfully deliver on all demands put before you, there is a commensurate
level of expectation for more of the same going forward. Therein lies the
challenge we face and prudency says we should expect that challenge to grow
as the threats around the world continue to increase.
2. Within every challenge lies opportunity, and I urge everyone to adopt
that point of view. Every member involved in the Navy and Marine Corps team
has the opportunity to make a contribution towards a more effective,
versatile, resilient, and lethal organization. You, as a member of this
team, will have access to a wide range of resources. Those resources must
be applied in the most impactful manner possible in order to enhance our
ability to deliver when called to fight. I look to each of you to seize the
opportunity and contribute to enhancing the effort.
3. I am humbled to be in the position to lead an enterprise that is manned
with such a stunning amount of proven talent. Our Nations all volunteer
force, and supporting teammates, are second to none. That is because of
you. I believe that the most valuable asset within an organization is the
high performing human component. We will work together to ensure we have
the best, sustainable environment in order to continue our history of
delivering when requested. Make no mistake, we are facing a threat level
that has not been witnessed for quite some time and urgency is the manner in
which we must all act as the complexity of threats increase in size and
scope. We must all be focused on the pointed end of the spear.
4. I eagerly look forward to working with you as we step out to face the
challenges set before us and embrace the opportunities that lie within those
