SCENIC EMERALD

After a comprehensive refurbishment, 2013 sees Scenic Emerald heading to the South of France to sail the Saône and Rhône. Already the finest ship to sail the waterways of southern France, Scenic Emerald will enjoy an extensive rebuild of the public areas with the addition of Table La Rive and the River Café in 2014. While the ship’s full-size balconies don’t yet feature the Scenic ‘Sun Lounge’, the region’s climate is typically favourable and perfectly suited to the outdoor lifestyle.
 
On our ships you can enjoy a level of luxury that wouldn’t be out of place in a boutique five-star hotel. And when we say ‘all-inclusive’, we really mean it - you can quite feasibly just bring your passport, and leave your wallet at home. Even the little things you may not even notice such as port charges, bottled water for excursions, Wi-Fi and tipping, are all included.
 
Luxurious Ships LUXURIOUS SHIPS
You won’t find a more luxurious ship on the rivers of southern France; from the bar in the Panorama Lounge, to the handpicked art lining the walls. And of course, the exemplary personal service. Our meticulous attention to detail is visible as soon as you set foot onboard. Our ships’ modern design features contemporary, luxurious finishes, fine woods and soft, high quality fabrics - all carefully selected with your comfort in mind. With at least one member of staff for every three guests, you can be sure of an outstanding level of service throughout your cruise, including a personal butler service for all guests.
 
Al Fresco Dining on Riverview Terrace SPACE TO RELAX, INDOORS AND OUT
We strictly limit our guest and cabin numbers. Not out of pretension or pride, but because in our experience, we know our guests appreciate a real sense of space. In fact, the wonderful scenery gliding by is often the only reminder you have that you’re actually on a ship. Our Panorama Lounge is larger than any you’ll find on ordinary river cruise ships, and there is plenty of space to relax at the bar while taking in the breathtaking views, not to forget River Café which will be a new addition for 2014. There are also outdoor areas including the Sun Deck, affording superb views of the ever-changing fairytale landscapes.

Scenic Emerald Balcony Suite THE LUXURY OF YOUR OWN BALCONY
We set out to revolutionise river cruising in 2008 by commissioning our very own Scenic fleet; briefing specialist architects to design and build ships that exude luxury, style and elegance. Our ships are immaculately presented, and the widest and longest on Europe’s waterways, with two entire decks of suites with balconies (that’s at least eighty-three percent of accommodation), all with floor to ceiling windows that open to your private outdoor balcony. It’s your own private oasis where you can enjoy a leisurely breakfast, read a quiet chapter, or perhaps sip a glass of complimentary wine as you sit back, put your feet up and watch the sunset.
 
Crystal -All inclusive luxury BUTLER SERVICE FOR ALL OUR GUESTS
Our renowned butler service is available to every one of our guests.  You’ll be welcomed aboard with a refreshing drink before being taken through the luxury amenities of your cabin. Whatever your cabin grade, your butler offers a complimentary drinks and valet service. If you’re staying on the Rhine Deck or above, your butler can arrange cocktail drinks and serve early morning tea or coffee in your cabin. Danube Deck guests and Junior and Royal Suite guests can enjoy all this plus additional extras such as in suite dining and pre-dinner canapés. See the ‘Service’ tab for more information.
 
Emerald Crystal Dining Restaurant DINE IN STYLE EVERY DAY
Aboard a Scenic Tours river cruise, you have a wonderfully diverse range of dining options to choose from; the intimacy of Portobellos Italian Restaurant, the elegance of the Crystal Dining Restaurant, or an al fresco barbecue on the Riverview Terrace. The exclusive Table La Rive for Danube Deck, Junior and Royal Suite guests will be a fantastic addition for 2014, as well as the relaxed River Café which will be open between breakfast and dinner. Refined to relaxed, al fresco to intimate, you truly are spoilt for choice. 
 
Crystal -All inclusive luxury DRINKS INCLUDED ALL DAY, EVERY DAY
While you’re onboard, all cocktails, spirits, beer and wine, are available with our compliments at any time. The only exceptions are a very small number of rare, fine and vintage wines, champagnes and spirits. Lunch and dinner are always accompanied by cocktails, a wide choice of wines, beer, soft drinks, tea and coffee. Even the mini-bar in your cabin is yours to enjoy any time, along with a large bottle of still and sparkling mineral water daily.
 
Crystal -All inclusive luxury NO HIDDEN EXTRAS
Hidden extras – we simply don’t include them. WiFi, port charges, tipping, gratuities… they're all included in the price of your holiday.
 
At Scenic Tours, we really do give our guests space to relax, indoors and out. Our Panorama Lounge is larger than any you’ll find on ordinary river cruise ships. Our ships are the largest and widest on the waterways and we have fewer cabins and guests on board, which means more space on board for you. Relax at the bar while taking in the breathtaking views, or if you’re travelling in 2014 why not take a seat in the River Café? There are also outdoor areas including the Sun Deck, affording superb views of the ever-changing landscapes.

New additions for 2014 will bring guests even more choice - the informal all-day River Café and the exclusive Table La Rive for Danube Deck, Junior and Royal Suite guests. Refined to relaxed, al fresco to intimate, you truly are spoilt for choice, all at no extra cost. 
 
Emerald Crystal Dining Restaurant EMERALD CRYSTAL DINING RESTAURANT
The Crystal Dining Restaurant offers its own unique ambiance; bright and refreshing in the morning, relaxing in the middle of the day, intimate and warm as evening draws in. Catering for all guests to dine at a single sitting with open seating allows you to sit with friends or share a more intimate meal. It’s here you’ll start each day with a wonderful buffet breakfast and cooked-to-order hot favourites. At lunch you’ll be spoilt for choice with generous buffets and a beautifully prepared à la carte menu. In the evening, your Maître d’ welcomes you to enjoy a delicious meal created by our award-winning chefs.
 
Portobellos Restaurant PORTOBELLOS RESTAURANT
No other river cruise ship in Europe offers a comparable dining experience like Portobellos Restaurant, which offers traditional Italian cuisine to a select group of just thirty guests. Be welcomed with a glass of Veuve Clicquot champagne and take your seat for this authentic culinary experience. Portobellos is perfectly located at the front of the ship, taking full advantage of the spectacular views. Our skilled highly acclaimed chefs will treat you to a delicious five-course menu complimented by exceptional wines, handpicked by our sommelier. As you can imagine, an evening at Portobellos is a wonderful experience that should not be missed.
 
Table La Rive - NEW for 2014 TABLE LA RIVE - NEW FOR 2014
An opportunity available to Royal and Junior Suite guests and all guests on the Danube Deck, this degustation menu showcases sensational seasonal produce, which are then paired skillfully with international and local wines by your sommelier. So for example, and perhaps to whet your appetite, our chefs will prepare a porcini cappuccino with blue potato chips, which is then served with Riesling. Or maybe marinated crayfish with mango and rocket, accompanied by a crisp Sauvignon Blanc from Burgenland. Each wine is carefully chosen to complement and enhance the flavours of the selected dish, creating an unforgettable dining experience.
 
Al Fresco Dining on Riverview Terrace AL-FRESCO DINING ON RIVERVIEW TERRACE
The real joy of being on a cruise is that feeling of freedom. As each moment brings with it new landmarks or breathtaking vistas, the Riverview Terrace affords a wonderful vantage point. On selected days, and if the weather permits, we transform the terrace into an outdoor restaurant where you can enjoy a cool drink and sizzling gourmet barbecue. At other times of the day, it’s the perfect place to enjoy a coffee or an ice cream and savour the view. The time honoured tradition of high tea is another exclusive highlight for our guests – be tempted by cream tea, sweet petit fours, finger sandwiches, and an inordinate selection of fine loose leaf teas.
 
River Cafe - NEW for 2014 RIVER CAFE - NEW FOR 2014
Open between breakfast and dinner, River Café offers delicious sandwiches with, for example; parma ham, citterio salami, roast beef or cheese. You can even ask the River Café to pack a hamper for you to enjoy on shore. There’s also the perennial favourite, freshly prepared fish and chips. If you prefer something sweet, there’s a superb selection of tartlets, croissants, cakes, strudels and chocolates as well as a choice of refreshing, delicious ice creams from our Gelati Bar. New in 2014 is the addition of custom-built pizza ovens. Enjoy your pizza in the relaxing surroundings of the Café, or order ‘to go’ and enjoy it on your balcony with a glass of wine.

Even the drinks in your mini-bar are complimentary. And that’s throughout your entire cruise.*

It’s here in the Panorama Bar and Lounge where you will enjoy a glass of champagne when you first board the ship. During your cruise, choose from a selection of wines, beers, soft drinks, cocktails and spirits, and help yourself to teas and coffee, all at no extra cost. It’s worth noting that we store our wines in special EuroCave storage cabinets to ensure that your wine is matured and served at the perfect temperature.

With fine wine being a way of life in Italy, your Portobellos experience will be accompanied by exceptional Tuscan wines, handpicked by our sommelier on his visit to the region’s bestboutique wineries including Fattoria Casabianca, an estate just 30 kilometres from Siena and renowned for Chianti, crafted predominantly from the Sangiovese grape.
 
Table La Rive TABLE LA RIVE - NEW FOR 2014

And don’t forget that the well-stocked Mini-Bar in your cabin is yours to enjoy at any time day or night along with a large bottle of still and sparkling mineral water replenished daily. Staying in one of our Deluxe Royal or Junior Suites? Your Suite would not be complete without a butler to serve tea and coffee in your suite each morning.
