Scenic cruise was enjoyable but not as good as previous cruises
"We have experienced Scenic's hospitality on a number of cruises and this was our fourth cruise on Europe's waterways with Scenic. Unfortunately, this cruise, out of Bordeaux, out of all the ones we have done, was..."Read More

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 ...

Bit confused as to why Scenic ask (and only allow) you to fill out a guest feedback form before the cruise is over, hence this review! Positives; The Staff are very good and strive to provide high levels of service across the board. There is a lack of constant background music and endless PA announcements which we found refreshing given the constant noise other cruise lines see fit to ...

Our first river cruise and we chose Scenic as it is sold as a 'Six Star' cruise which in many ways is true. The ship is the nicest we saw, rooms are small but this is a River Boat and they are perfectly equipped with everything you could need. Cannot speak highly enough about the team on board - butler service was amazing, the teams in the restaurant and bars were great and Mandy the Cruise ...

Fabulous cruise with delicious local fresh food and very well presented. Plenty of variation to choose from each day. The red and white French wines were great however when we asked for French Champagne on arrival we were only offered sparkling wine. It wasn't until we enquired further that the sommelier then offered us French Jacquart Champagne. I would have expected French champagne to be ...

Being wine lovers, we wanted to visit Bordeaux, 'the wine capital of the world'. Our trip started with a pre-cruise two night package at the Intercontinential Bordeaux, in an upgraded executive room. The pre-cruise package was an excellent deal as it included all transportation and full breakfast. The Scenic Diamond was moored about a thirty minute walk from the hotel. We ventured over there ...

A nice wine cruise but few wine enthusiasts onboard

This was our first ever cruise (river or sea). So for those who live in the cruise lifestyle, we may not be the best review for you. While we have never been very attracted to the cruise lifestyle, we have always been interested in trying a river cruise in France. We are also wine enthusiasts and collectors with a special love for French red wines. So when we heard that AMAways was ...

The reason why we booked was a special offer of 10 nights for the price of 7. We had heard Scenic tours were a very good travel company although rather expensive. We had previously done European river cruises with Uniworld which suits us. Looking at your brochure we were hoping Scenic were going to offer us much more. But other than the balcony with a window that goes up and down, it did not. ...

My husband and I chose this cruise because of Hilton, the location of Bordeaux, of course wine and the activities/excursions offered which sounded very active. We had the owners suite which was amazing with the windows opening entirely in both the bedroom and the balcony. The walk in closet was great as was the tub which is a must for me. Enjoyed our sitting room and had guests almost nightly ...

It was 20 years or so since we last took a river cruise. Scenic's reputation, first class ships, advertising and website hyperbole convinced us to travel with them. 'Beautiful Bordeaux' seemed to fit the bill. In most respects our decision was vindicated. The all-inclusive nature from airport check-in at our local airport to return 11 days later was exceptionally well organised. Our flights ...

This was our third Uniworld cruise and like the others, it was very nice and good fun. We traveled with three other couples for a group of eight and were accommodated well with a table at each meal. This cruise had a younger crowd than the others and the dance floor was swinging most nights. The food was well prepared and two of the dinners were outstanding. Staff was super attentive and ...
