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 the least enjoyable and ... Read more

This was the third holiday we have had with Scenic and overall it was the most disappointing. Whilst the Scenic Diamond was to the usual high standard and the crew helpful and accommodating we were happy to disembark. We felt that Scenic ... Read more

Scenic is an Australian line and as residents of the USA we wanted to travel with less of us and more of a variety of diverse nationalities. We had a blast. The Australians, New Zealanders, Canadians, Brits and Scots were so much fun. ... Read more

We chose this cruise to travel with friends who had been with Scenic previously. We travelled by Eurostar and TGV to Bordeaux, which was fine but only just made it to Paris Montparnasse as the cross-Paris timing was very tight. On ... Read more

Excellent service from Scenic. All was included: drinks, tips etc, so although it seemed expensive, there was nothing else to pay. There were well organised excursions, with consideration for those with walking problems. They did ... Read more

We paid for the Scenic Diamond but got the Scenic Cubic Zirconia! First our pickup at the airport was over an hour late. All other cruise lines had picked up their people and left. Next, there was a strike on our scheduled trip from ... Read more

We are great fans of French reds and really enjoyed our previous trips exploring the Rhone region and Champagne areas of France. Bordeaux appealed for many of the same reasons: lovely scenery, great wineries, picturesque chateaux, ... Read more

We specifically chose this cruise, as we watch him on PBS, and because this cruise was billed as a hands-on cruise with Burt Wolf, who would be with us in some of the towns and host special events in some towns. However, the itinerary ... Read more
