Review of Scenic Pearl
The Scenic Pearl boat cruises on Moselle, Danube, Main and Rhine rivers in Europe. The ship's itineraries visit Netherlands, Switzerland, Hungary, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic. Departures are from Amsterdam, Munich, Passau, Basel, Zurich, Budapest and Prague. Itineraries from Paris (France) include a flight to Amsterdam Holland.
Scenic Pearl was launched in 2011 as one of Scenic Cruises (Scenic Tours in Australia and the U.K.) "Space Ship" class vessels. These are called so because they offer plentiful in-cabin and public space. Scenic Pearl standout features include "Sun Lounge" balconies, simultaneously making the staterooms feel large and make the balcony usable in inclement weather.
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. 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 Pearl has a total of 85 cabins (of which 70 balcony suites) in 14 grades.

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.
