Scenic Crystal, Jewel and Jade were the sixth, seventh, and eighth ships to join our fleet of luxury Space-Ships respectively. All three river cruise ships feature our signature Scenic Sun Lounges, as well as newly designed cabins and suites. 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. These ships are noteworthy for their luxury suites, which are outfitted with sun lounges, 32-inch high-definition TVs, and complimentary wireless internet access. With four sumptuous decks boasting a selection of private suites and public lounge and dining venues, every aspect of Scenic Crystal, Jade and Jewel has been carefully considered to be easily navigable and wonderfully luxurious. We set the benchmark for the standard of suites on board, the most spacious on any European vessel. From a Standard Suite to the Royal Panorama Suites, guests will find the ultimate in all-inclusive luxury. Luxury, space, views, they’re all included. Luxury focused innovation and design mean Scenic is a class leader delivering the ultimate in European river cruising on our state-of-the-art Space-Ships. With the largest suites on the rivers, a staff-to-guest ratio of 1:3, a wellness area and gym, Wi-Fi internet, e-bikes to explore, all included in the price you pay, you’ll never want for anything else. Introduced to the Scenic dynasty in 2012; Scenic Crystal, Jewel and Jade set a new benchmark in luxury travel upon entering service in Europe. Since then, they’ve been attentively upgraded to bring them in line with newer members of the fleet, offering enhanced comfort, luxury and technological innovation without forgoing the charm that made our ships so popular with previous guests.
