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 the Crystal. This was changed to the Jasper before leaving Canada and we found out that we would sail on the Jade the day before leaving. This was our first cruise ever. We chose to go with Scenic because of the ratings we saw (5 star experience) and the comments received from friends and relatives who had travelled with them in the past. Our experience turned out to be our worst vacation ever. Mostly due to the noise level (not the vibration) in the cabin, our cabin being close to the engines - it was the last cabin on the second deck. The information concerning this is under ''Cabin review''. Note that our neighbours in room 237 were switched rooms at Nurenberg as one room became free. They had complained before us to the cruise director so they got the room. We also found out that some passengers who had booked almost 3 months after us got a better room, at a better rate, when Scenic did a sale through Travelzoo. This got us even more upset. Service and food on board were very good. As were the Entertainment we attended either on board or during outings, with the highlight being the concert at the Lichtenstein palace in Vienna. On the negative side, during the visits, the devices provided to listen to the guides did not work very well. We were regularly disconnected and when it worked we had background noise that made hearing the comments difficult. Some of the guides told us that the system needed to be changed. Even the cruise director made the same comment. The Average rating for Shore excursions is tied to the devices provided. For the last 3 days of the cruise, the men's washroom near the lounge and dining room were out of order so I had to go back to my room every time I needed to use the washroom. The Jade is a newer vessel and is much cleaner than the Crystall. Also, the internet connection on the Crystall was at best shady compared to the Jade. We could not connect from our room and connection from the hall was not very fast. The furniture and carpet in the lounge of the Crystall need to be refreshed. We will not travel with Scenic again because this was our worst vacation ever and after complaining and explaining the situation when we returned home, we do not feel we were properly compensated. We verbally advised them we would not cruise again with them and at first, they offered us a rebate for our next cruise, knowing full well our position concerning a next cruise. We did eventually get a financial compensation but not to what we consider was an acceptable level. Read Less

This was my first river cruise and won’t be my last. Had a wonderful experience on the Scenic Crystal. Wonderful staff, great excursions, food was outstanding. We came with a group of 18. Couldn’t have been a better way to travel with this many people. We had 160 people on our boat but never felt crowded. Plenty of space to accommodate our group.They had such a nice variety of excursions. Always something for all interests. The staff saw to our every need. They all seemed to work together as a team . The food was very good. Loved that we had 2 nights with different dining experience’s outside of the normal dining room. Nice variety of entertainment . Also very happy with the way they timed everything. Never felt rushed or over scheduled but yet we saw and did so much. Very well organized and run operation. Loved that everything was included. No upgrades required. Thank You Scenic Crystal for a wonderful first River Cruise. Read Less

Scenic provided an all in one totally all inclusive cruise with a terrific itinerary and solid caring support throughout the entire experience. Scenic delivered on all of the advertised features and programs and they were very co operative with our request for an early flight overseas before our scheduled departure as our flights to and from were both part of our package. We also chose the Prague extension at the end of the river cruise and we were certainly not disappointed as both the quality and value of this option was once again incredible. We also had a fantastic Scenic tour guide with us throughout the entire experience in Prague. We would certainly recommend and wouldn’t hesitate ourselves to once again travel with Scenic. It was an awesome experience that we will never forget. All of the extras with the Scenic enrich program were also incredible and thoroughly enjoyable and they were all exclusive for just our Scenic group. We have never received this kind of treatment and attention before on any of our previous vacation experiences. Thank you to Scenic and all of their staff for really delivery something very special.
