Review of Scenic Gem deck 4 (Sun)
Sun Deck is accessible only by stairs. This is the best vantage point to enjoy the 360-degree countryside panorama along the Scenic Gem itinerary route.
Navigation Bridge (on riverboats called “Wheelhouse”) is passenger accessible and telescopic. It can be lowered for passing under low bridges.
Riverview Terrace is the outdoor observation deck area furnished with wicker chairs and wooden tables (has some umbrella coverage). This is the boat’s al fresco dining venue served by a dedicated River Cafe staff.
Sun Deck is a vast outdoor seating and relaxation area with plenty of tables, fabric chairs, and luxury loungers. There are three retractable awnings (shaded seating zones) for relaxation. They can also be lowered when the boat passes under low bridges.
The ship’s top deck additionally features a Walking Track (used between 8 am – 10 pm), Giant Chess set (aft), bike station (30 electric-assisted bicycles). Bikes are complimentary. Passengers can use them on all guided Scenic tours and excursions, or on individual tours.
