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, impeccable service and 5-star Space-Ships, Scenic is your best choice on the rivers of Europe. 

Our Space-Ships are designed with you in mind, boasting some of the most spacious and luxuriously appointed suites on Europe’s rivers. An important part of tailoring your Scenic river cruise to you is choosing your preferred suite. There are a few key points worth considering in addition to how much you would like to spend. This guide will help you select the best suite for your personal preferences.

How much space is right for you?

When you book your Scenic Europe river cruise, you’ll benefit from a choice of spacious suites. Each of our suites is designed with your comfort in mind, providing a luxurious amount of space to help you unwind.
Positioned on the Jewel Deck, the Standard Suites are a perfect introduction to river cruising. They are the ideal choice 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 and enjoy time to yourself, the Balcony Suites and Junior Suites are for you. Both feature our innovative Scenic Sun Lounge, as well as an array of luxurious amenities. If you are after more space with a separate living and sleeping area, our collection of Royal Suites are the ultimate treat for complete luxurious indulgence.

What amenities are important to you? 

All of our suites boast a luxurious selection of amenities, letting you enjoy the same exceptional comfort of a 5-star hotel. Whichever suite you choose, you can relax and make yourself at home.

As a standard, all Scenic suites include a luxury queen size Scenic Slumber bed. You’ll have the opportunity to tailor your comfort with our pillow menu, featuring eight different options. You’ll also benefit from luxurious amenities in the bathroom, private butler service, a complimentary mini-bar restocked daily, and access to the Mac-mini infotainment system with complimentary movies on demand. Your essentials are included – a luxury bathrobe and slippers, butler service, shoeshine service, and early morning tea/coffee service.

If you are seeking an even more personalised service and optimum indulgence, guests staying on the Diamond Deck in our Royal and Junior Suites can enjoy additional inclusions. Delight in daily savoury and sweet canapés or fruit, an in-suite beverage service, and a complimentary laundry concierge plus two items of pressed clothing daily. Guests in Royal or Junior Suites on cruises of seven nights or less will also receive an exclusive invitation to Table La Rive.

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, so whichever suite you choose, you can watch the passing scenery. 

Balcony Suites, Deluxe Balcony Suites, Junior Suites and Royal Suites all feature a Scenic Sun Lounge. These suite types are spread over two decks (Diamond and Sapphire). The innovative lounge means you can enjoy stunning views whatever the weather. In sunnier times, let the glass window drop down at the touch of a button, allowing you to take in the fresh breeze as you gently sail along Europe’s waterways. For truly stunning panoramic views, our Royal Panorama Suites offer 180-degree views of the unfolding landscape.

On the lower Jewel Deck, our Standard Suites feature large picture windows to ensure you have a picturesque view. These suites are ideal for those who prefer to spend more time exploring the Space-Ship, socialising with newfound friends, and taking in the 360-degree 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 certain public areas, here is a general guide to positioning on our Space-Ships.

Standard Suites on the Jewel Deck are conveniently located close to the Salt Therapy Lounge and gym, which is ideal for those seeking to rejuvenate or stay active 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, offering easy access to the bar, lounge and restaurants. If you’re seeking a more social river cruising experience, these suites are best located.

Positioned in the middle of the ship, Royal Owner’s Suites and Royal Balcony Suites benefit from a quiet, secluded location. Royal Panorama Suites enjoy stunning panoramic views of the unfolding landscape and are furthest from the bar, lounge and restaurants. These suites are perfect if you wish for some ‘me time’ and private space to relax in between your daily excursions. 

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 ultimate luxury, our Royal Suites (Royal Balcony Suite, Royal Panorama Suite and Royal Owner’s Suite) should be your number one consideration. Cherish memories to last a lifetime as you toast to a particular occasion.

Commitment to Health & Safety

Regardless of which suite you choose, your Scenic Space-Ship will be your luxurious oasis as you explore the waterways of Europe. When you travel with Scenic, you’ll enjoy the ultimate in truly all-inclusive luxury, every moment of the day. You can learn more about our selection of suites here.
