Like every ship in the Scenic fleet, these vessels feature spacious luxury suites that are class-leading in terms of size and refinement.

Other in-cabin features include a minibar, luxurious double (or twin) bed complete with pillow menu, and perfectly appointed bathrooms featuring the very latest shower and wet-room technology. Every Scenic European river cruise begins aboard one of our boutique vessels or custom-built Space-Ships, so named for their spacious guest cabins, dining, and entertaining areas. Each of these four-deck Scenic Space-Ships includes numerous dining and sightseeing areas, as well as a lounge and bar area that offers panoramic views. Additionally, guests can retreat to the wellness center, which is equipped with a beauty salon, and massage rooms.
