Review of Scenic Diamond

The Scenic Diamond boat cruises in France on Garonne river leaving out of Bordeaux. The Scenic Tours cruise line also offers combined itineraries departures from Paris France. They include TGV (speed-train) travel Paris to Bordeaux. The itinerary's second leg includes a Seine River cruise from Paris on the Scenic Gem ship. Hotel packages are included in the Scenic's France cruise fares.Scenic Diamond cruise ship

Scenic Diamond was launched in 2008 as one of Scenic Cruises popular “space ships”. If you’re American, you may have never heard of this river line. The reason is that its parent company from Australia hasn’t marketed to Americans. The extraordinary “space ship” class design offers plentiful cabin and public space, as well as one of the highest in industry passenger space ratio. 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.

Cabins

Scenic Diamond's standout features include “Sun Lounge” balconies, simultaneously making the staterooms feel large and the balcony usable in inclement weather. All meals, drinks (except the French Champagne and highest-end liquors), excursions, butler service and Internet are included in the fare. The additional amenities include television-Mac computers in every cabin, glassed-in showers, L’Occitane products and fluffy bathrobes. Scenic Diamond has a total of 85 cabins (of which 70 balcony suites) in 14 grades.
