How to choose your suite

The Suite Life - a guide to selecting your suite on a Scenic Space-Ship

If you’re currently planning your European river cruise, looking at dates, itineraries and trying to work out who is your best choice of river cruise company – then look no further. With a truly all-inclusive luxury philosophy and impeccable service, Scenic is your best choice on the rivers of Europe. 

Our Scenic Space-Ships were designed with you in mind. From the moment you step on board you’ll be warmly welcomed into the Scenic family. When it comes to choosing your preferred suite, there are a few key points worth considering in addition to how much you would like to spend. These will help guide you toward selecting the best suite for your personal preferences.  


How much space is right for you?

The suites on Scenic’s Space-Ships are some of the most spacious on Europe’s waterways and provide plenty of places to relax and unwind.

Positioned on the Jewel Deck, the Standard Suites are a perfect introduction to river cruising. They are perfect for those who prefer to maximise their time relaxing in the venues throughout the Scenic Space-Ship, exploring onshore, socialising with other guests or taking in the views from the Sun Deck. 

If you prefer to relax in your suite, enjoy luxurious amenities and time to yourself, the Balcony, and Junior Suites are for you. If you are after more space with a separate living and sleeping area, the range of Royal Suites are the ultimate treat.

What amenities are important to you? 

As a standard, all Scenic suites include a luxury queen size Scenic Slumber bed and you can tailor your comfort with our pillow menu. The bathrooms have luxurious amenities, all suites have butler service, your complimentary mini-bar is restocked daily and you have access to the Mac-mini infotainment system with complimentary movies on demand. Your essentials are also included – a luxury bathrobe and slippers, as well as butler service, shoeshine service, early morning tea/coffee service and complimentary laundry concierge (once per cruise). 

In addition to these inclusions, guests staying in Diamond Deck in Royal and Junior suites also receive daily personalised savoury and sweet canapés or fruit, in-suite beverage service, complimentary laundry concierge plus two items of pressed clothing daily and an exclusive invitation to Table La Rive if in a Royal or Junior suite on cruises of seven nights or less.

Enjoy the privacy of your own Scenic Sun Lounge? Or lounging on the Sun Deck?

The suites on board Scenic Space-Ships all have river views. There are no inward facing suites. Balcony Suites, Deluxe Balcony Suites, Junior Suites and Royal Suites all feature a Scenic Sun Lounge. The innovative lounge means you can enjoy stunning views whatever the weather, with a glass window that drops down at the touch of a button. These suite types are spread over two decks (Diamond and Sapphire). The Royal Panorama Suites enjoy stunning panoramic views of the unfolding landscape with 180 degree views.

On the lower deck, Jewel, you will find the Standard Suites with large picture windows to ensure you have a great view. These are ideal for those guests who prefer to spend more time exploring the Space-Ship, socialising with other guests and taking in the views from the Sun Deck. 

Prefer your suite to be near to (or far away from) specific areas of the ship?

While all suites are conveniently located, if you prefer to be closer or further away from the common areas of the Space-Ship, here is a general guide to positioning.

Standard Suites on the Jewel Deck are conveniently located close to the Salt Therapy Lounge and gym where you can rejuvenate or revive during the day. The benefits of salt therapy include natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, which strengthen the immune system and help relieve symptoms for a range of conditions.

Deluxe Balcony Suites and Junior Suites are in prime position at the front of the ship, closest to the bar, lounge and restaurants for easy access. Positioned in the middle of the ship, Royal Owner’s Suites and Royal Balcony Suites benefit from a quiet, stable location. While Royal Panorama Suites enjoy stunning panoramic views of the unfolding landscape and are furthest from the bar, lounge and restaurants. 

At the time of booking, you will be able to view the deck plans on our website and in our brochures to select the preferred suite location for you.

Celebrating a special occasion?

If you are celebrating a special occasion or just want to experience the ultimate in luxury, our Royal Suites (Royal Balcony Suite, Royal Panorama Suite and Royal Owner’s Suite) will ensure your European river cruise will be as luxurious, as it is memorable. Located on the Diamond Deck, there is more space, an outdoor balcony, lounge area and an oversized bathroom with separate bathtub for pure relaxation. Guests can look forward to unlimited complimentary laundry service, a complimentary welcome bottle of Champagne (750ml), morning delivery of newspapers, beverage and meal service in your private suite, packing and unpacking your luggage, €200 per suite on board credit for use in the wellness centre and private transfers in Europe.

Regardless of which suite you choose, your Scenic Space-Ship will be your luxurious oasis as you explore the waterways of Europe and enjoy the ultimate in truly all-inclusive luxury, every moment of the day.
