I recently traveled with my husband and in-laws on a Scenic Ruby cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam just this past June and the trip exceeded our entire group's expectations. Some of the reviews posted below are absolutely ridiculous, as it ... Read more

Our first river cruise, and through process of elimination of others, we chose Scenic…the Jewels of Europe from Amsterdam to Budapest. The weather made this the perfect time to cruise. Only one rainy day and mostly wonderful ... Read more

We have just arrived home to Australia from a River Cruise with Scenic Ruby from Budapest to Amsterdam. Our experience with Scenic has been nothing less than excellent. From the moment we landed in Budapest to the moment we left the ship ... Read more

It had been a dream for a number of years to do a European river cruise. Knowing they were expensive, I researched and compared a number of lines and decided to go with Scenic. It turned out to be a great decision. We travelled in May on ... Read more

I have read other reviews and honestly, I don't know where some of these people get off! Our vessel, Captain & crew, Hotel staff, all food, all included tours and everything about this cruise was 5 star, even down to the toilet paper. ... Read more

Not up to the standards set by Viking or Uniworld! A cruise of contrasts:- The crew were mostly excellent but the waiters at the Farewell Dinner lacked organisation and enthusiasm. Access to the ship was difficult for many ... Read more

My wife and I purchased a river cruise package from Scenic which including the airfares cost over $60,000. This was a Paris to Paris cruise along the Seine followed by a cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest with an ad on in Paris at the ... Read more

We have just left the 8/9/2014 River Cruise from Basel to Amsterdam with Scenic Ruby. It was such a disappointing experience that I feel compelled to write about it. I note that Cruise Critic has published reviews of the same ship in the ... Read more

We were due to leave Australia after the floods in Europe were well publicised. We continually rang Scenic Tours only to be told that there was no problem as far as they were concerned. The waters were receding and we would be boarding our ... Read more

It's unlike sea cruising in that there was almost always something interesting for us to see as we sailed up the Rhine then down the Danube. The cabin was very comfortable - just enough room but with a glass wall & door on the river side ... Read more

We decided to take our first river cruise with Scenic based on the recommendation of our travel agent who said it was the best and most modern line on the Rhine/Danube. The Scenic Ruby and all the Scenic ships in Europe, I believe, all ... Read more

Our cruise on the Scenic Ruby far exceeded our expectations. Our cabin was on the top deck in the middle, just behind a suite, and it was a quiet, easily accessed location. We did experience some minor vibrations at times, but it is a boat ... Read more
