Scenic Pearl

Explore Europe on board the Scenic Ruby or Scenic Pearl and enjoy stunning views from the Sun Deck, exclusive dining and a choice between five spacious suite categories.

Affording effortless luxury and comfort; Ruby and Pearl are invaluable members of the Scenic Space-Ship fleet — helping to transport our guests to the furthest reaches of Europe via its illustrious and ancient waterways.

Each vessel in this class has been considerately renovated to meet the peerless standards we strive to achieve when designing our entire fleet of Space-Ships, benefitting from plush interior design features which provide the same level of luxury you can expect from a boutique hotel.

The ships themselves feature four decks including the Sun Deck, Diamond Deck, Sapphire Deck and Jewel Deck, each of which is home to a number of suites and cabins and handful of illustrious public spaces and dining venues — including Crystal Dining, Riverview Terrace, Portobellos and the Panorama Lounge Bar.

No matter which deck you find yourself walking home to after an evening spent savouring the taste sensations of Table La Rive, or else watching the world float by from Riverview Terrace, you’ll be struck by the level of opulence and luxury afforded to every aspect of these unique river cruise liners.
