We looked at dozens of cruises but liked what we saw from Scenic. We travelled to Amsterdam with Eurostar, so easy and seamless. We were warmly welcomed on arrival on the Ruby and so it continued for the whole week. The ship is ... Read more

This was our first European River Cruise. Having done all-inclusive cruises with Regent Seven Seas we decided that an all-inclusive river cruise would be the way to go. We were certainly not disappointed. The experience was even better ... Read more
