Scenic booking agents were attentive. We arrived in Amsterdam two days prior to boarding the Scenic Opal. We would recommend doing this as Amsterdam is a beautiful city with much to offer. We chose Scenic because it was all inclusive. The vessel was clean. The staff were very attentive. The food good. The free choice shore excursions, almost three a day to choose from, were well planned and ...

This was our first river cruise and a great experience. Richard the cruise director was amazing, he was living and very knowledgeable. Looked forward everyday for this review for the next day of what to expect on the excursions. The staff that service you is top notch!! They are all very friendly and profession.

A friend we were traveling with found Scenic and we just took his recommendation. The ship was excellent and the crew were superb. The only disappointment was our butler, who did very little and for the the odd time that we asked for something he still didn't come through. Otherwise, the entire experience was excellent. The shore excursions were very well organized and we were very pleased ...

Chose this river cruise on Rhine River per a suggestion from a family member. This was our first river cruise, after being on several ocean cruises, outstanding experience over larger ships. Boat is limited to 80 cabins (160 customers) which allowed for more personal service to your want and needs. Tailoring to more experienced travelers. Cabins were very spacious and comfortable, enclosed ...

We have done a number of sea cruises but this was our first river cruise. We wanted a 5* all inclusive cruise and that is what we got. The staff were amazing and Richard, the cruise director was the best cruise director we have ever had. The ship was relatively small compared to the ocean going vessels but adequate. The gym had a great treadmill although overall it lacked a variety of equipment (I ...

Very good cruise but a shame about lock closures on Moselle

We chose this because it was sailing on the Moselle, one of the few rivers we hadn't yet sailed on-we've taken many river cruises. we had been told that Scenic were good and so wanted to see for ourselves. it was a well-priced cruise.. The ship was always beautifully clean, the staff were all excellent and attentive, and food was generally of a good standard.. The on board pianist was the ...

Although a late deal, this holiday was chosen to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary year. Embarcation went smoothly though we had to wait a short while for our cabin to be ready. The food was superb, plenty of choice from fish and vegetables for a non- meat eater. The waiters looked after our every need courteously and with good humour as did the bar staff. The entertainments ...

First I should explain that overall I had a nice cruise on Scenic and I would recommend a Scenic River Cruise. Below is a listing of the "Good" and "Bad" experiences that I had while sailing with Scenic. The Good: Exceptionally clean ship and cabins. Hard working and enthusiastic crew members. Great wait staff in dinning rooms. Spectacular views on excursions. Bikes accessible ...
