It fits in quite nicely with the six other precious and semi-precious stone themed vessels Scenic Crystal, Diamond, Emerald, Pearl, Ruby and Sapphire. We’ll have to venture a guess that Scenic Cruises is calling their collection 'Space-Ships' so passengers know they'll have plenty of room to move around once on board. It sounds so simple and perhaps unnecessary until you're crammed into a tiny stateroom and have to shower over your toilet. Times they are a changin'.... Read More
