Scenic Amber: Luxury river cruising in Europe

Cruises on this ship

On board

E-bikes (electronically assisted) are available in certain ports. If that plus walking each port isn't enough, there's a small gym aboard to run off the delicious meals.


Scenic Amber serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, all included in your fare. Dinner is not overly formal but passengers do dress up a little. Dinner consists of at least three courses based on the produce of the port the ship is visiting. Aboard a Scenic river cruise, you have a range of dining options to choose from, including the informal all-day River Café, the intimate Portobellos Italian Restaurant, the elegant Crystal Dining Restaurant and the exclusive Table La Rive for passengers on the top deck.


While you’re on board, all cocktails, spirits, beer and wine are complimentary; however, there are a few exceptions, including vintage wines, fine champagnes and spirits. You can also enjoy a mini-bar in your cabin any time, along with a large bottle of still and sparkling mineral water daily.

Service & space

With at least one member of staff for every three guests, as well as a personal butler, Scenic Cruises makes sure that each passenger gets great service. 

  • Butler Service: This ship's butler service is available to every passenger. You will be welcomed aboard with a refreshing drink before being taken to your cabin. Whatever your cabin grade, your butler offers complimentary drinks and valet service.
  • Space: Scenic Jasper is referred to as one of the line's Space Ships, meaning that guests and cabin numbers are limited to ensure that staterooms and public areas aren't crowded. Highlights include the Panorama Lounge, which is larger most lounges found on river cruise ships, and the River Café, which offers great views. There are also outdoor areas including the Sun Deck.

Staterooms & suites

Scenic Cruises ships are some of the widest and longest on Europe’s waterways, with two decks of suites with balconies, all with floor-to-ceiling windows that open to your private outdoor balcony. If the weather isn't ideal, all balconies can be transformed into a "Sun Lounge," making sure you don't miss the scenery. 

All rooms come with queen-size Scenic "Slumber Beds" with Egyptian cotton linen, individual climate control and a pillow menu. Your suite or stateroom includes a flat-screen HDTV and Mac mini system, plus complimentary mini-bar and wi-fi internet access. There’s also a personal safe for your valuables and a nightly turndown service.
