Life aboard Scenic Ruby
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.

Scenic Ruby was launched in 2009, refitted in 2018, and is amongst the largest of cruise vessels in Europe. The stylish public rooms have an under stated ambience, with comfortable leather sofas in the main lounge area and panoramic floor to ceiling windows offering excellent views. The Observation Lounge is one of the roomiest of any river cruise ship, and is adjoined by an open air teak deck furnished with stylish tables and chairs. This deck is exclusive to Scenic Tours, allowing guests unlimited access to outside areas. This is an essential feature on days when the top Sun Deck is closed due to the ship passing under low bridges. Dining is in the single-seating Crystal Dining room, and there are two superb alternative restaurants. On board you’ll find a health-and-beauty area and fitness equipment.

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.

Suites (19 to 30 sq.m.) are 24% larger than standard river cruise cabins. View the passing countryside through sliding double glass doors. Furnishings are tasteful and made for comfort. Ensuites have L’Occitane toiletries for that special touch. Junior Suites (23 sq.m. and Royal Suites (29/30 sq.m.) are even more spacious, with larger seating areas and separate bathtub. While every guest has private butler service, Danube Deck suites have additional services that provide many personal extras – morning tea or coffee on the balcony, shoeshine, garment press, salon appointments, and individual shore excursion arrangements. Royal and Royal Panorama Suites have in-suite dining options. There is one single 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 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.

The River Café provides light meals, snacks and refreshments that you can take anywhere at any time, and good coffees. Take a picnic hamper ashore while you wander around villages with your GPS handset. The Panorama Lounge and Bar at 31 sq.m. is spacious and affords excellent views. The bar is always open, with a selection of fine wines, boutique beers, house spirits, soft drinks and mineral water. The Observation Lounge, a teak deck at the bow of the ship, is very popular. Complimentary espresso coffee and a selection of teas are available all day. Traditional High Tea is served on the Terrace.

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.

Download the free Scenic Tailormade app for the Daily Cruise Program, travel guides, audio commentary, document storage – everything you need – superb! On board, view the passing scenes from your balcony, or from the forward Riverview Terrace on the Sun Deck, which also has a waking track, plenty of sun lounge seats, and shade. In your stateroom read a book or select your TV viewing using the infotainment console. On the lowest deck is the Wellness area with massage, hairdresser and beauty salon. Next to Reception is a gift shop. Gratuities on-board and on-shore are not requested or expected. All entertainment is managed by a dedicated Cruise Director.
