'Delightful Douro' cruise lives up to its name

This was our second cruise, and second with Scenic; the holiday fully justified our decision to travel with them again. Almost everything about the trip was perfect, from airport transfers at the start through to the final day. The ship, Scenic Azure, was in excellent condition; the public areas were always clean (and kept clean throughout the day). Our balcony suite was comfortable, ...

Nice to tour Portugal via the Douro, but expectations were not met AND I got COVID while onboard

The ship is updated, clean and the staff are friendly and accommodating. That said, I have a few safety concerns for anyone even with slight mobility issues. There are no grab bars in/around the shower. Although the ship is relatively stable on the river, there are occasional movements (locks/docking) that could cause one to lose their balance. The ship has multiple outlets (only ...

The original cruise booking was for April 2020, but COVID got in the way delaying to our 5th attempt in October 2022. A really first-class cruise. Great staff, mainly Portuguese, superb accommodation, exceptional food and service and memorable side trips. Whilst the ship is 6 years old, its facilities are up with the more modern river ships. This experience could not have been handled ...

We heard positive reviews of Scenic, but this cruise was better than expectations. We began with the precruise in Lisbon, where we had a nice review of the city and met a small group from our cruise (@ 20 people). This group consisted of some of the most interesting and fun people we've met, and we became friends quickly. Once on the ship, not only did we meet more interesting passengers, but ...

We were recommended the Douro river by friends we met on our last cruise and having been on most European rivers we decided to take up their recommendation. We chose Scenic because we have been on a few of their holidays and like the package they offer as well as the service from boarding onwards. We have to add that they a not very 'user friendly' company beforehand with documents etc arriving at ...

Chose this cruise as somewhere different from our other river cruises. The scenery was magnificent, the crew was wonderful & couldn't do enough to make the entire experience as terrific as could be. The tours, wine & port tastings & concert were all very well done. The guides were knowledgeable, able to get their knowledge & information across in a way even that those of us knowing little of the ...

We chose another Scenic cruise after having a wonderful experience 3 years ago when we took a Budapest to Amsterdam cruise with this company. All the transfers and excursions which were part of the Lisbon extension on our cruise were handled seemlessly, as was the return transfer from the Azure to the Porto airport. Our cabin was on the Diamond level which entitled us to a number of complimentary ...

This is a great river cruise up the beautiful River Douro. The scenery is really beautiful with lots of high hills and, at times, narrow gorges. We both really enjoyed the trips we went on, our guides were very informative, helpful and amusing! Great variety of trips to choose from. As this is quite a hilly region most of the trips required a coach (1 was just over 2 hours, rest were under 1 ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 50s

This was our first river cruise and we didn’t know exactly what to expect. It was a wonderful cruise down the Douro River. I read many reviews on cruise critic to get a better idea about the cruise we were taking. I was most concerned about space in our room. We stayed on the diamond deck, room 316. The room is small but not so small and not short on storage. There is plenty of space under the ...
