We went with family, No children. Children would be board but it was great for adults. Our travel agent was amazing and helped us with the booking. Scenic looked after everything else. Hotel/airport transfers were done with high end buses and professionals. We stayed at the hotels recommended by scenic and were not disappointed. The meals were amazing. It sucks to be home and try to ...

I'm in my early 30s and most on this cruise were late 50s and above. We wanted to take one for it's ease of getting from City to city. Plus it included amazing food, premium beverages, excursions and tips. The service was great. I booked the cheapest fair room but was still treated on par as all other passengers. Not all of the excursions started in the morning there were a few days that started ...

We had never been on a river cruise before but travel extensively, almost always independently. But we decided we wanted to try this out based on all of the positive things we heard from friends. I did a bunch of research before selecting Scenic. They seemed to have the best features at the best price and excellent reviews, even though I didn't know anyone who had used them personally. We ...

We knew we wanted to do a Danube/Rhine cruise and after trying to figure out the ratings of cruise lines and also trying to compare pricing, we contacted our travel agent and she did the legwork for us and recommended Scenic. Our cruise was from Budapest to Amsterdam (14 days) and we also opted for the extension in Prague and a couple extra days in Amsterdam. We were extremely pleased with the ...

We chose this cruise at the last minute and did not really know what to expect. After a long flight we embarked the ship in Amsterdam with a minimum of fuss and found what should have been a hectic experience very smooth and welcoming. The staff aboard “The Pearl” were nothing short of fantastic and really made our cruise the experience of a lifetime. The cabin is small but very comfortable and ...

We chose this cruise because of its inclusivity. Once we boarded and for the duration of our trip we did not have to worry about money (except for souvenirs). We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, from the greeting at our arrival to the smooth transition when we left the boat at the end of our journey. The staff were experienced and helpful, the food was top notch, the excursions well planned and ...

Were not sure what to expect for our first River Cruise but we were certainly impressed from our airport arrival and transfer to our hotel a few days before the cruise. The transfer from the hotel to the ship, the crew, and cruise far exceeded our our expectations. The transfers to our hotel after and a few days later to the airport we expect we will have the same exceptional experience. Having ...

We went to a few different presentations from various cruise lines when we looking to book a river cruise. We chose Scenic as it seemed to offer the kind of experience we were looking for. When they said it was “all included” - it was all included - from the fabulous excursions just for the guests on our ship, to on-ship entertainment, all the delicious meals (buffet for breakfast and lunch) and ...

Disaster from from the start. Low water levels meant we couldn’t start at Nuremberg, which I know is beyond their control, went to Passau and stayed there for 3 days which was a long way from Passau it’s self, had to look at a brick wall for3 days. Too far to walk anywhere so never saw Passau. Had to endure hours on coaches to get anywhere. No food for us when we eventually arrived at the ship ...

I’m so pleased I chose the Danube to introduce me to river cruising! Climate changes are affecting river levels and we were unable to cruise the section from Nuremberg to Passau, which was disappointing but Scenic did their absolute best to keep us happy!! We were bused to Passau and there we docked for 3 nights. To see the tours we had scheduled we had to be bused anywhere from 2-3 hours which ...
