There are no hidden extras on a Scenic river cruise.

Spacious, Luxury Ships

Scenic's European River Cruise ships have been designed with a modern, contemporary touch featuring luxurious finishes, fine woods and soft, high quality fabrics.

The butler service for guests on the Jewel and Sapphire decks also includes a valet and shoeshine. Guests on the Diamond Deck and in Junior Suites can enjoy breakfast served in the room, whilst those in a Royal or Royal Panorama Suite are also treated to the ultimate butler service from delivering a morning newspaper to bringing pre-dinner canap's.
