After a gorgeous night of sightseeing last night in Budapest, I had a chance to explore Scenic Jasper today. She’s a beautiful vessel from a company that aspires to be to river cruising what Regent Seven Seas is to ocean cruising, which is to say that Scenic wants to be the most-inclusive luxury player in the river cruise segment.
With that goal in mind, Scenic differentiates itself in a few key areas:
I’ll look at each of these components during my sailing. For the moment, I thought I would introduce you to the Sun Lounge in my stateroom. The concept is a little easier to grasp if you see it in action, so I’ve produced a short video to show how the Sun Lounge works. Read the story and see the video on River Cruise Advisor.
