Scenic Ruby was built in 2009 and refurbished along with sister ship, Scenic Pearl, in 2019. Offering effortless luxury and comfort; Ruby and Pearl help to transport guests to the furthest reaches of Europe via its illustrious and ancient waterways. Both vessels have been considerately renovated to include plush interior design features that provide the same level of luxury you can expect from a boutique hotel. 

The ships themselves feature four decks including the Sun Deck, Diamond Deck, Sapphire Deck, and Jewel Deck, each of which is home to a number of suites and cabins and a handful of illustrious public spaces and dining venues — including Crystal Dining, Riverview Terrace, Portobellos and the Panorama Lounge Bar. No matter which deck you find yourself walking home to after an evening spent savoring the taste sensations of Table La Rive, or else watching the world float by from Riverview Terrace, you’ll be struck by the level of opulence and luxury afforded to every aspect of these unique river cruise liners.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
