Highlights were Remy Martin and Old submarine base in Bordeaux

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Scenic Diamond

LYATH

We chose this cruise as we particularly wanted to see the light show at the old submarine base and also wanted to visit Remy Martin. We also wanted to do several french wine tastings which this cruise also gave us the opportunity to do. My husband really enjoyed the visit to Remy Martin. The best winery visit was Chateau Lagrange. Very good tour and organised wine tasting. on the other hand the ...

A pity about the rivers and the landscape

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Scenic Diamond

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

After the Douro, the Seine and the Rhone, the Garonne etc. are a disappointment - ugly brown water (clean apparently) and rather dull landscape - not until you get out into the vineyards does it start to get pretty. Also some of the towns are a bit sad - the back streets of Libourne, for example, are to be avoided - full of beautiful but neglected, derelict houses and weeds pushing through the ...

Bordeaux cruise through the wine region

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Scenic Diamond

We chose this cruise because it was an area of France which we had always wanted to visit. We have sailed once before with Scenic on the Rhine and four times with the sister Company Emerald. We have always been very happy with the service we have received. The cabin was an adequate size for us and was kept extremely clean by our attendant. The food and drinks package was also very good. The ...

Chose the cruise after seeing Getaway on TV and thought a it’s be great to spend some time in one area without unpacking The cruise exceeded our expectations from the staff to food and quality and choices of excursions including electric bikes! Yvonne the cruise director is sensational at holding it all together with great humour and a zest to make our stay the best holiday one could ...

Disappointed is an understatement terrible quality tours and food

Have been on many many river cruises and though this might be a nice change as I never have been with this company before well it is my first and last .I can’t really find anything that I could say that says 5 star at best 3 star food was the worst I have ever experienced the quality of the products were just underwhelming I had paid over £5000 for one person on a French river cruise I expect ...

Disappointing

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Scenic Diamond

6-10 Cruises • Age 60s

Travel agent convinced us it was the best even though it was most expensive. Although ship was fine and we had a great time with people on board cruise was a let down. Hotels were amazing but greeting dinner at a sports bar was terrible. About half the excursions were good the others very touristy and tacky. The headphone system for guides never worked and delayed every tour as they tried to sort ...

The jury is still out

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Scenic Diamond

Aging traveller
2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

A distressing outward journey to reach this cruise is still colouring our view of the trip. Our verdict on whether Scenic goes on to a "never, ever again" list awaits a ruling from their Customer Service Department on whether we will be refunded for additional tickets we were forced to by en route to be able to reach Bordeaux. This was our first cruise with Scenic. We were interested in the ...

Either 3.5 or 4 Stars

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Scenic Diamond

FFOCLO56
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

Very interested in learning more about French wines, having a luxe experience and taking our first river cruise, the 11 Day Bordeaux trip on the Diamond jumped out at us. We paid in full over a year prior to sailing and were expecting a 5 star experience. The trip fell a bit short of exceptions. First of all, the entire crew was five star, headlined by Yvonne, cruise director, Miguel, assistant ...

We chose this river cruise because owe always wanted to try Scenic. They had a good special on and we were not disappointed. We also wanted to visit the Bordeaux region so this fit the bill nicely. We had a wonderful suite. The suites are a bit small but very efficient so we found spots for all our luggage. There were lots of plugs for our electronics and laptop, hearing aid charger and more. It ...

Saw this Beautiful Bordeaux cruise whilst thumbing the Sunday Papers with an early bird 2 for 1. Had never been on a river trip but this trip was par excellence. Food staff and scenery ….oh and the all inclusive premium drinks and electric bike rides. First class overall. Bit of a pain going by train with early morning departure from St Pancras but all part of the journey . Brilliant electric ...
