Worst vacation ever

Review for Scenic Crystal to Europe - River Cruise

First Time Cruiser

Age 60s

My wife and I booked this trip almost one year in advance. We wanted to celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary in a different way. We travelled alone. We arrived in Budapest 2 days prior the cruise departure so we could tour the city on our own. We had no problem with the embarkation although we found out the day before departure that we were on a different ship. At first we were to be on ...

Low water problems

Age 70s

Cruise was supposed to be a river cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam, however, low water levels resulted in being bussed 800 km of the 1400 km trip. Scenic was not, of course, responsible for the low water, however, they almost certainly knew well before the Oct. 16/18 start date that they would likely have to bus passengers for more than 1/2 of the trip. They therefore should have cancelled ...

Not a cruise but a very expensive bus trip

Chose this cruise to see the scenery, castles, and towns as we cruised along the Danube and the Rhine and the fact we would not have to pack for all 15 days. Actually we only cruised 1 day total in the daytime, the rest was a series of long bus trips, 3 ship changes and a few night in hotels and some cruising at night. The Ruby was the last ship but no space to enter all 3. This was all due to ...

Too much noise

Review for Emerald Dawn to Europe - All

We were booked on the Emerald Dawn but the ship was changed to the Emerald Sun. The central problem was noise from above at all hours of the night. The toilets on the ship were of an airline design. We were on the second level, and had to endure the explosive sound of the toilet from the cabin above throughout the night. We were awakened many times during the night, even when using earplugs. ...

Misleading and treated poorly

Age 60s

Having arrived in Budapest from NZ, over 32 hrs in transit, we were informed that due to low water levels Avalon Panorama could not sail from Budapest to Vienna. However we saw Viking, Uniworld, Tauck and many European River Cruise lines sailing to Vienna. We were rather disconcerted by this! We had our first night Tuesday in hotel( lovely Hilton) then bus to Vienna. Ordinary bus not coach! We ...

No water, no cruise

First time cruising on a ship. Saved a lot of money for this. Looked like a good deal free air fare 150 E credit. We arrived a day earlier than the cruise to allow for jet lag to wear off a bit only to be informed by the hotel that are cruise would Br be leaving for another day as the ship could. Not sail into Budapest. A shock hearing this from the hotel and not the cruise line. So we were bused ...

Scenic fails at customer level

We chose this cruise because we were told it was all inclusive and fantastic. Our first five days were pretty good but we didn’t know that the river levels were an issue and we asked every day but no one would tell us anything finally we were told one night before dinner that the ship could no longer navigate the water. We were given three choices with no real plans to either of them. We were ...

we chose this cruise because it was two weeks and ended in amsterdam. I will start with the food i like my food and expect it to be of good quality and sufficient meat fish and vegetables. It was none of the above the fish and meat were meager portions with miniscule vegetables which were often just a squeezed paste on the plate, and the sauce was just three or four dots on the plate and gravy ...

Poor value for money

Thought it might be good from past cruises with scenic but very disappointing. Our panorama suite was not as expected from literature and video. Definitely not value for money. The table and chairs were not suitable for eating a room service meal. The balcony was no bigger than those on ordinary rooms. The noise from the engines kept you awake and the vibration made everything move, rattle, tinkle ...
