Scenic Crystal cruise ship
Scenic Crystal is the first in a series of 4 new-class Scenic Tours ships launched between 2012 and 2016. The boat's fleetmates are named Scenic Jade, Scenic Jewel and Scenic Amber. These luxury riverboats, along with the 2015 launched ships Scenic Jasper and Scenic Opal, are part of the line's expansion program. It positioned the Scenic Cruises line among the best European river passenger shipping lines. All Scenic Tours river cruise ships in Europe are operated with inclusive deals. These boats are also nearly 1/5 longer but with smaller guest capacity compared to standard-design riverboats sailing on the big European rivers and inland waterways. This type of design (patented as "space ships") allows bigger cabins and spacious public areas. A signature feature of all Scenic Cruises "space ships" are the cabin balconies called “Sun Lounges”. These are outdoor terraces which easily convert into indoor lounge areas. Scenic Crystal offers 85 staterooms and 4 passenger decks (including two decks full of balcony cabins). The ship boasts two restaurants, gourmet dining options, spacious top-deck with served terrace and shaded sitting area, Gym & Spa facilities, one elevator. On all (price-inclusive) Scenic cruise tours and excursions ashore, guests receive GPS tracking devices (called ScenicTailorMade) with uploaded digital maps. They also double as listening devices for the live narration by the line's local expert tour guides provided on all group travel excursions. Binoculars and bicycles are also provided complimentary to fully enjoy the scenery everywhere along the itinerary route.
