Emerald Waterways has a fleet of young ships in Europe with contemporary interior designs. The earliest were built in 2014, and three are new this year. Among the innovative features you'll find on board most ships are a heated swimming pool with a retractable roof (this space converts to a movie theater on certain nights), as well as balcony suites that open to the outdoors -- the upper part of the window can automatically slide down to let in the fresh air.

The upfront rate of an Emerald Waterways vacation includes meals, guided excursions, gratuities and transfers. Complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks are served at lunch and dinner, and tea and coffee are available at any time. Borrow one of the onboard bicycles to explore in port, and take advantage of the complimentary Wi-Fi.

The line arranges special experiences, like afternoon tea with a Slovakian family in their Bratislava home or a Provencal-style dinner on the Rhone hosted by a local chef. EmeraldACTIVE shore excursions are offered, too, such as a guided bike tour in the Wachau Valley along the Danube or a hike in the Black Forest.

Scenic offers a "truly all-inclusive" river cruise, where the upfront price covers the following: all meals, unlimited beverages, all gratuities, transfers, Wi-Fi, in-suite butler service, an in-suite refrigerator restocked daily and a variety of shore excursions. Ships are stocked with electric bikes, standard bicycles and Nordic walking sticks.

The line's Scenic Space-Ships have suites with private verandas. The balconies can be transformed into sun lounges -- if the weather turns chilly, push a button and a glass pane will rise to create an enclosed space with full riverside views.

The Scenic ships offer several dining venues. The casual River Cafe serves light meals, snacks and gelato, while the Crystal Dining Room hosts full breakfasts, lunches and dinners. The intimate Portobellos for Italian fare (or L'Amour on French river cruises) provides some of the ship's best views from its location at the front of the ship, along with five-course meals paired with regional wines. Table La Rive, reserved for guests in certain suites, presents a six-course tasting menu.

The Scenic Diamond and Scenic Sapphire, both based in France, have two unique new features. Scenic Culinaire hosts cooking classes, and it's outfitted with cooking stations, refrigerators filled with fresh ingredients from local markets and a live camera and screen so that participating guests can easily follow the chef's instruction. The second draw is a new spa experience called the Salt Lounge. Constructed of handcrafted salt bricks, the space is said to provide therapeutic benefits.

Scenic offers several ways to enjoy each destination. Scenic Enrich experiences provide unique cultural highlights (a private evening concert at Vienna's Palais Liechtenstein, for example). Scenic FreeChoice offers multiple options for sightseeing, from easygoing outings like museum visits to active pursuits such as hiking and biking.

Scenic Tailormade is designed for those who wish to explore on their own. You'll be given a handheld GPS device loaded with interactive maps, commentary and touring options (including cycling routes) to help guide you through your personal excursion.
