MS Scenic Sapphire

With as much as 20 percent more onboard space than the standard river cruise ship, a trip on the MS Scenic Sapphire offers ample space to relax while still maintaining an intimate atmosphere. The ship features an elegant interior, deluxe amenities and exquisite onboard services. The splendors of Europe are always on display from each riverview cabin, the majority of which boast a private balcony. Passengers can enjoy gourmet meals with quality wines, take in panoramic views on a walk around the outdoor track or tune into the live music entertainment at night.
