We liked that the cruise was all inclusive - no extra charges for excursions, tips, drinks. There was an ample number of choices for the excursions, or you could stay on the ship, or take an e-bike out and tour the town at your leisure. ... Read more

We booked this cruise to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary and were not disappointed. Embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. The ship is modern and well appointed and was kept spotlessly clean. The entire crew is a credit ... Read more

Overall we were a tad disappointed by this Scenic cruise for the following reasons: 1. The quality of evening meals weren't up to what we expected given previous reports. Overcooked pork fillets and wiener schnitzel. 2. Despite some ... Read more

My husband and I chose to repeat an Amsterdam to Budapest river cruise, but this time on a Scenic boat, because they offered different stops/excursions than the previously used company. I wish we had chosen Scenic the first time--this ... Read more
