We’ve always wanted to tour the Bordeaux region of France. When we found that there were river cruises being offered for that very purpose, we believed there could be no better way to learn more about Bordeaux wines and appellations than by going on a cruise ship. We chose the Scenic “Flavours of Bordeaux” cruise because we had been on a Scenic river cruise once before and loved the way they cared ...

We choose this cruise for the destination, Bordeaux. As such, the cruise met our expectations and then some. There were also many daily exercise options including long bicycle rides which we enjoyed. The staff was solicitous, friendly and professional. The cruise was kept clean and COVID special protocols were in place. The food was the big disappointment. From the appetizers which were ...

Always heard wonderful things about Viking River Cruises in General, and the Bordeaux cruise put me close to the Dordogne, the section of France I never toured. Unfortunately I caught something on the plane coming over and I had limited energy for the excursions. Nevertheless we did go on some.The tour guides were really good! The food was even better, certainly there was enough! Way more than I ...

My wife and I enjoyed this cruise so much four years ago that we decided to go again. Neither of us were disappointed this second time around. From the moment we stepped onboard, it was like coming home. The staff personnel were not the same, but the service and treatment was the same and more. The staff are so attentive to our every wants and needs and then some. I say this with sincerity, ...

We are ocean cruisers and have been cruising for a number of years. When our cruise on Windstar canceled we decided we still wanted to travel. So we did some research and found this river cruise which visited the Bordeaux Region. Checked Scenics' reviews very happy with what we read and decided to book it! The idea of it being ALL inclusive was very attractive as well. Riding eBikes and wine ...

Nice ship, good service but wine and food could be improved

Dining The service was generally very good – not perfect, but quite good. Note – given only 46 passengers it should have been good. Food was of a good quality and usually well prepared with good taste. A few items were overcooked and a bit tough, but most pretty good. It is not gourmet and doesn’t feature the best ingredients. Do not expect lobster, sole, turbot, caviar, or truffles. A ...

Scenic was going to a place we wanted to go at a time we wanted to holiday and we got a good offer from ROL. The cruise was good overall, but the senior chef was inconsistent. He didn’t understand French cheeses and how they should be stored and served. All consommé soups were very poor. We talked to the chef about it and he said it was because he wasn’t encouraged to use salt! Later a ‘tarte ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

Our first river cruise and headed into it blindly. One can research cabin sizes, services, costs as much as they like but in the end how did our complete package do? Rather well indeed. At 54 and 65 we were close to being the youngest people on board. This was a shock initially and more so as over 85+ year olds slowly started to come aboard using wheelchairs and crutches and walkers. But the ...

We are wine lovers and had heard about this from friends. Scenic puts the L in Luxury! Every detail is taken care of and and every request is met as part of the service. Staff are amazing, the ship is beautiful, and the activities are top notch! The dining is 5 star, with excellent wine pairings to accompany the meal selections. It really is all inclusive — you would be hard pressed to include ...

We’d never been to France and a wine cruise sounded like it would be fun. We were traveling with friends and met new ones. The staff is outstanding! Wonderful attention to even the smallest details. We would especially like to thank our butler Armin(and Victor). Bart in the dining room and Martina and Patrice in the lounge were always smiling and very attentive. We had lovely massages as ...
