Review of Scenic Jewel

The Scenic Jewel boat cruises on Rhine, Main and Danube rivers in Europe. The ship's itineraries visit Netherlands, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic . Departures are from Amsterdam, Nurnberg, Prague and Budapest. Itineraries with Paris (France) and London (England) include the flights to or from Amsterdam Holland.Scenic Jewel cruise ship

Scenic Jewel is the second in a series of 4 new-class Scenic Tours ships, together with the Scenic named fleetmates Jade, Crystal and Amber. These luxury European riverboats are part of the line's impressive fleet expansion. This newbuilding program positioned Scenic Cruises among the best European river passenger shipping lines.

All Scenic river cruise ships in Europe are operated with all-inclusive luxury travel deals. They 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 innovative 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 Jewel offers 85 staterooms and 4 passenger decks (including two decks full of cabins with balconies). The ship has two restaurants, gourmet dining options, spacious top-deck (with shaded terrace lounge and sitting areas), Gym & Spa facilities, an 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 Scenic river cruise itinerary route.

Scenic river cruise deals are among the industry's most all-inclusive. All meals, drinks (except the French Champagne and highest-end liquors), excursions, butler service and Internet are included in the fares. Even the drinks in cabins' mini-bars are complimentary. Scenic Tours cruises traditionally attract travelers from Australia and the UK, with a constantly growing number of Americans, Canadians and Germans. Passengers are 55+, financially comfortable and well traveled.

Scenic Jewel 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.
