Scenic has completed renovations to all eight of its ships sailing the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers.
Completion of the project brings to 10 the company's European fleet of redesigned vessels, which they have dubbed "Space Ships." Scenic's two France-based ships were similarly redesigned for the 2017 season.
The renovations reduce from 84 to 80 the number of cabins on the Scenic Ruby and Pearl and from 85 to 82 ton the Scenic Jasper, Opal, Amber, Crystal, Jade and Jewel). The ships also have a new 520-square-foot Royal Owners Suite and larger wellness centers that include a gym, massage services, hair salon and salt therapy lounge.
An amenity unique to Scenic, salt therapy lounges are humidity- and temperature-controlled rooms crafted from salt bricks to create the micro-climate of a natural salt mine, which are said to have curative effects.
The Royal Suites have walk-in closets, separate bathtub and showers in an oversized bathroom, a private bedroom, large living room and walk-out balcony.
