Scenic Diamond Overview

Scenic Diamond operates from April to October each year. She offers 7- and 10-night cruises in the Bordeaux region of West France. Scenic Diamond sails the Dordogne and Garonne Rivers, which converge into the Gironne Estuary that enters the Atlantic. With no overnight sailing the leisurely cruises are a wine lover’s treat. The itinerary may be part of a 12-day tour that starts in Paris, takes rail to Bordeaux, and after the cruise ends in Bordeaux. Here are châteaux, vineyards, wine-makers famous for their names, and eighteenth century architecture. This cruise can be extended by air south to Madrid. At every destination Scenic Tours pre-books the best docking available for easy access to town centres and your choice of sightseeing options.

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.

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 Portobello’s (for 32) offers an intimate Italian experience. Danube deck suites access the chef’s six-course Table La Rive and degustation menu, a taste of our 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.
