Can not fault anything on this cruise and the staff were fantastic. Lovely to be on holiday and understand everyone as the main tourists are Australian, Kiwis, American, Canadian and British. The average age is about 65-70 but this did not bother us as everyone so friendly and we were by far the youngest. We had a balcony suite which was sufficient - all toiletries included and everything in your mini bar - plus refilled every day. The ship was only three weeks old and has a well thought out layout. There is even a little dipping pool on the top deck which was 40oc when I got in but very pleasant. A lot of the other scenic boats do not have one. The dress code - quite casual. Nobody got really dressed up for dinner. Food - good selection but they will also make whatever you want. Drink - all free-husband made full use of it!!! On board there are electric bikes - these are put on shore when docked for you to use-great fun and worth a shot-free to use. Our scenic rep Gary who stays on board was full of fun and information - he organises all your trips, entertainment, deals with any problems etc. There was only one hick-up he had to deal with-in each cabin there are two commentary electric guides for your tour information-these kept loosing signal but when we left the ship they were getting all check out and reprogrammed. Would definitely recommend:)
