Scenic Crystal Overview

Scenic Spaceships Ruby, Pearl, Crystal, Jewel, Jade, Jasper, Opal and Amber cruise the Rhine-Moselle-Main-Danube river system from March to November. As the ships are mostly identical they share itineraries. Generally the river cruise portion is of 7 or 14 nights, but extensions to major cities extend this up to 30 days. Options are: Cruise the entire length of the system from Amsterdam to near the Black Sea (and then on to Bucharest and Turkey); cruise just the Lower Danube, perhaps also including Vienna; cruise the Upper Danube with side trips to Munich, Budapest and Prague; cruise the Rhine and Moselle between Amsterdam and Switzerland; cruise the Rhine and Main to include Paris, Prague and Budapest; and in December visit the Christmas Markets between Paris and Prague. These itineraries include Europe’s grand cities and quaint medieval villages. During April and May, when the tulips are flowering, a 7-night cruise circles the canals of the Netherlands and Belgium. Scenic Tours combines cruises with land tours to all parts of Europe and the UK, as well as all the other rivers of the Continent.

Accommodation

All 16 classes of staterooms are larger than industry standard, with outside views. The upper two accommodation decks have private balconies. The lowest deck has panoramic viewing windows. Stateroom amenities include AC, flat-screen TV, infotainment system, free Internet access, desk with chair, a larger-than-queen-size bed, free mini-bar, hair dryer, personal safe, shower and complimentary bathroom toiletries. Balconies have teak wood decking, coffee table and chairs. During inclement weather enclose the balcony with hand control so you still enjoy the views. An elevator services the top two accommodation decks. There is one single balcony suite.

Food and Dining

Waterfront dining in the main restaurant Crystal Dining (with tables for 2, 4, 6 or 8) offers flexible seating and includes a buffet breakfast with champagne, a wide selection of salads or main courses for lunch, and a four-course à la carte meal in the evening. Menus change daily and include local specialties and complimentary beer, wine and soft drinks. Enjoy the seafood gala evening. The specialty restaurant Portobellos (for 32) offers an intimate Italian experience. Danube deck suites access the chef’s six-course Table La Rive (for 10) and degustation menu, a taste of Scenic signature dishes in one sitting. On some days the Sun Deck becomes an al fresco Teppanyaki barbecue venue.

Entertainment

After-dinner entertainment may include traditional performances of dance and music, and informative lectures on local history, crafts, cuisine and culture inform guests about the passing region. There may be cooking classes, tastings, and culinary demonstrations. Local specialty artists come aboard to exhibit their skills. On-shore tours are port-intensive and conducted by expert guides communicating with your personal wireless headset. Take in castles, gala concerts, markets, villages and even private homes. Or, take your own independent tour using a GPS handset showing planned routes, either walking or by e-bike (with motor assisted pedalling). Listen to its voice commentary of 700 points of interest. Understandably, many places can only be seen by foot. You have a broad choice of included activities at each port of call.
