All of our balcony suites feature our exclusive Scenic 'Sun Lounge' system which transforms your balcony into an all-weather conservatory style space.

With a crew to guest ratio of 1:3, a dedicated cruise director and a private butler for every guest we offer an exceptional level of service that combines 5-star quality with personal attention to detail.

Whichever suite you choose, room service provided by your butler means you'll never be without complimentary refreshments and a re-stocked mini-bar for whenever the fancy takes you.

Wellness Centre & Fitness Facilities


Another way to stay active during a Scenic cruise is with one of our electronic-assisted bicycles. The e-bikes allow you to explore the things that appeal to you most and go deeper into the heart of your destination.

So whether it’s a new town, city or vineyard it’s always easy and fun to explore on a Scenic e-bike.
