Review of Scenic Jade
The Scenic Jade boat cruises on Moselle, Danube, Main and Rhine rivers in Europe. The itineraries visit Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Hungary, Czech Republic. Departures are from Amsterdam, Basel, Zurich, Budapest and Prague. Itineraries with Paris (France) are price-inclusive of the flight to or from Amsterdam Holland.
Scenic Cruises Jade ship is the third from a series of new-class Scenic Tours ships. The boat's fleetmates are named Scenic Crystal, Scenic Jewel and Scenic Amber. These luxury riverboats are part of the line's impressive expansion program.
All Scenic river cruise ships in Europe are operated with inclusive deals. Scenic's ships are nearly 1/5 longer but with smaller guest capacity compared to standard-design luxury river ships in Europe. The new design (patented as "space ships") allows bigger passenger cabins and more 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 Jade has 85 staterooms and 4 passenger decks (with two decks full of balcony suites). The ship has two restaurants, gourmet dining options, spacious top-deck with served terrace and shaded sitting area, Gym & Spa wellness facilities, an elevator. On all (price-inclusive) Scenic river cruise tours and excursions ashore, guests receive GPS tracking devices ("ScenicTailorMade") with uploaded digital maps for precise navigation on land. 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 cruise itinerary routes.
Scenic Jade cruise prices are per person and based on double occupancy. These are only indicative Scenic cruise rates. They might be different when you book your Scenic Tours river cruisetour deals, influenced by travel agency promotions, special offers and discounts, group travel booking or last-minute deals rates.
