Scenic River Cruise Ships

In order to create a unique river cruising experience, Scenic River Cruises boasts a modern fleet of 5-star ‘space-ships’. By providing spacious, elegant staterooms that include all the amenities of a luxury hotel-room, Scenic River Cruises have created a river cruising experience like no other. Guests enjoy a passenger to crew ratio of 1:3, so whether you’re receiving the service of a personal butler or friendly waiters, the attention to detail is simply top-class.

Each space-ship has been carefully designed for the waterways it explores, ensuring the journey feels just as important as the location. Two special river ships sail the Mekong and Irrawaddy rivers with all-balcony suites, the only of their kind in Southeast Asia, making sure you don’t miss a moment of the stunning view. On all ships, guests can expect large, contemporary staterooms with facilities and amenities that you can customise to suit you. Turn your balcony into a ‘sun lounge’, allowing you the freedom to relax in privacy whatever the weather, and choose from a pillow menu to get the perfect nights rest.

Scenic River Cruises Dining

With up to six options, from a delectable buffet breakfast to a specialty gourmet meal in the evening, you’ll struggle to pick your favourite. A team of expert chefs will be eager to present to you the finest regional dishes, immersing you in the culture of your current destination. In addition, so that every guest can indulge in the delicious cuisine, the team are happy to accommodate any dietary requirements. For those in-between moments, tea and coffee stations are available for you to use onboard the ship, or simply make a request to your personal butler.

  • The main venue aboard a Scenic Space Ship is the Crystal Dining Restaurant, an elegant and wonderful place aboard where both the buffet and à la carte options are exquisite. Tables are open seating for two to eight people, giving guests the freedom to dine the way they want.
  • The second main dining venue is the Portobellos restaurant, an intimate and exclusive place for just 30 guests to enjoy some of the finest cuisine onboard. Portobellos enjoys a prime position at the front of the ship with great views as its guests dine on the specialities served.
  • Table la Rive is only available to residents of the Diamond Deck and dining here includes an outstanding six-course tasting menu accompanied by fine regional wine.
  • Available to all guests is the River Cafe. Taking on a more relaxed lounge quality, the River Cafe ensures guests have the option of early breakfasts, light lunches and snacks including ice cream and cakes.
  • Head above to the Sun Deck to enjoy the open air at the Riverview Terrace as you choose from the fantastic light menu.
  • If you’d like some privacy, you can also feel free to dine right in your stateroom with menus for lunch and dinner served to you by your personal butler.

Scenic River Cruises Entertainment

Each ship has been perfectly designed to ensure that guests can enjoy their downtime cruising down the rivers. Grab a spot on one of the sun loungers and lay back reading your book or breathing in the fresh air as the world passes you by.

When it comes to wellbeing, the wellness centre gives you the ultimate relaxation session from your hair down to your toes. Facilities include:

  • Trained massage therapists
  • Modern gym facilities
  • Walking track
  • Vitality pool
  • E-Bikes

What's more, when you aren’t exploring on land, Scenic River Cruises bring the culture and entertainment to you. A musical showcase brings past ages to life, while exclusive cooking classes allow you to recreate your favourite delicacies. Alternatively, simply order your favourite drink from the fully-stocked bar, take a seat and soak up the evening atmosphere alongside the other guests. There is so much to taste, learn and experience through these onboard events – all you have to do is sit back and enjoy!

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
