Review of Scenic Amber

The Scenic Amber boat cruises on Danube, Main and Rhine rivers in Europe. The itineraries visit Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic. Departures are from Amsterdam, Nurnberg (Nuremberg), Budapest and Prague. Itineraries with Paris (France) are price-inclusive of the flight to or from Amsterdam Holland.

Scenic Amber cruise ship

Scenic Amber is the last 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 Crystal. 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.

Cabins

All Scenic 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 Amber has a total of 85 cabins (of which 73 balcony suites) in 16 grades and 4 passenger decks (including two decks full of balcony rooms).
