The Suite Life - a guide to selecting your suite on a Scenic 5-Star Ship

Every day is a new revelation cruising in South East Asia on the Mekong and Irrawaddy rivers; experiencing historic temples, intriguing cultures and customs, there is so much to discover. These two rivers have a rich and diverse range of historic sights, bustling communities and numerous activities to choose from, knowing that your Scenic 5-Star Ships are waiting for you with the perfect luxurious sanctuary at the end of an exciting day of exploration. 
Scenic’s boutique ships feature indulgent and spacious suites, the largest lead-in suites in the region. Filled with natural light, they are your private sanctuary, adorned with stunning local artworks, ventilated with pre-treated fresh air that does not circulate to other suites. Our Scenic professionally trained staff will warmly welcome you on board and always be on hand to cater to all your needs, so that wherever you choose to cruise, you will feel right at home. 

Each thoughtfully designed suite is designed to offer the luxury, you would experience at some of the finest 5-star hotels. This guide will help you make your suite selection and customize your South East Asian journey to your preference.
