Review of Scenic Gem
The Scenic Gem boat cruises on Seine River leaving from Paris, France, and visiting Honfleur (located across from Le Havre). The Scenic Tours cruise line also offers combined (back-to-back) itineraries with included TGV (speed-train) travel Paris to Bordeaux for embarking on the second leg of the B2B river cruise itinerary. This second part includes a Garonne River cruise from Bordeaux on the Scenic Diamond ship. Scenic's France cruise fares are inclusive of hotel packages.
Scenic Gem was launched in 2014. The ship is one of the smallest in the Scenic Cruises fleet, but still among the company's "Space Ship" class newest vessels.
A signature feature of all Scenic "space ships" are the cabin balconies called “Sun Lounges”. These are outdoor terraces which easily convert into indoor lounge areas. These are called so because they offer plentiful in-cabin and public space. A standout feature also includes their "Sun Lounge" balconies, simultaneously making the staterooms feel large and make 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 Gem has a total of 63 cabins in 12 grades.
