The bathroom design incorporates a modified shower, no bath and general layout to assist guests with mobility limitations. The general cabin layout allows wheelchair entry, however the use of the wheelchair within the cabin, balcony and bathroom is limited and the larger door restricts the size of the wardrobe. In the event of a ship-swap you may find varying design features on each ship. Cabins 301 & 302 have a partially obstructed view from the Balcony. The Sun Lounge design of these cabins is modified due to the ship structure. The balcony size is not impacted however the ship structure replaces a section the glass.

  • Star RatingCrown IconCrown IconCrown IconCrown IconCrown Icon
Scenic Gem sails the beautiful rivers of France and delivers the same all-inclusive luxury experience synonymous with the new fleet of Scenic ‘Space-Ships’. Enjoy a private butler service, a wealth of dining venue options including L'Amour fine dining restaurant and spacious suites. Introduced to our portfolio of luxury Space-Ships in 2014, Scenic Gem has been custom-built to negotiate one of France’s best loved passageways, the graceful and elegant Seine. Measuring 110m, Scenic Gem is a refined and intimate vessel whose cutting-edge features and amenities make it, without question, one of the safest, most comfortable riverboats operating on this much-loved river system. Scenic Gem is the most luxurious ship currently cruising the Seine River and was purpose-built to cruise all the way to beautiful Honfl eur. With only 64 suites, guests will enjoy an almost 1:3 staff to guest ratio along with every all-inclusive 5-star luxury amenity you've come to expect on a Scenic Space-Ship. With innovative new technology, your Scenic Space-Ship will be your gracious floating hotel as you cruise the waterways of France. Intimate and friendly, with every amenity you could wish for, our Scenic Space-Ships were designed with you in mind. From the moment you step on board you’ll be spoilt for choice. From our wide selection of dining options right down to your pillow menu, you’ll enjoy the ultimate in all-inclusive luxury, every moment of the day. On board you’ll have full access to a fitness center and wellness area, special on board entertainment, Wi-Fi internet, e-bikes and of course luxuriously appointed suites to retire to at the end of the day. Your Cruise Director, as well as every member of our hospitable on board team, are on hand to make sure you make the most of every minute of your time on board your Space-Ship. Delivering the same all-inclusive luxury experience synonymous with the new fleet of Scenic ‘Space-Ships’, guests on Gem will enjoy private butler service, a wealth of dining venue options, private balconies with Scenic ‘Sun Lounge’, and our usual wide choice of complimentary drinks whenever and wherever you are onboard. Exclusively designed and crafted to cruise the Seine River in Northern France, Scenic Gem affords guests unbridled luxury and opulence atop this timeless and enchanting waterway. More than capable of negotiating the meandering ebb of the Seine, Scenic Gem is able to sail to the port commune of Honfleur; a rare ability for a riverboat of this class. Despite this capability, Scenic Gem boasts all of the luxury features you’d expect from a Scenic vessel — think opulent designer touches, a host of award-winning dining venues, and of course, the most spacious and luxurious cabins of any river cruise operator.
