From the moment we were greeted at Amsterdam airport by a Scenic tour director, we knew we had made a great choice. We had done numerous ocean cruises in the past and had decided that a river cruise taking in the Christmas markets was a ... Read more

We had to switch ships (Jewel to Crystal) half way through the cruise. The bus ride from ship to ship was about 2 hours and the switch was rather seamless. When we boarded the Crystal, we quickly noted that the crew were not as upbeat ... Read more

Ship is a 'convention' or banquet hall type of atmosphere, no pictures,no ambience. Plastic flowers on tables & big bouquet of plastic flower in foyer. Staff although professional, it was a 'business' as usual attitude. The 'butler' ... Read more

Scenic Tour's new ship, the Crystal, was a gem. The cabins were so well laid out, that you had ample room for all your clothes, shoes and treasures that were purchased along the way. We were gliding so smoothly on the rivers and through ... Read more
