The ship itself was really beautiful, spotlessly clean, immaculately presented. The Staff could not have been better or more accommodating and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble, from our Cabin Steward to the Captian and everyone in-between, they each went out of their way to ensure our holiday was very special. The food was a-m-a-z-i-n-g!!! Superbly fresh, presented gloriously, with plenty of fresh, local produce and ample options for all, including gluten-free dietary requirements. The tours were really well organised, complete with exceptionally good English speaking local guides. The tour options were also really great, in fact too good as we really wanted to do everything but of course this is not possible, (just another excuse to return again!). Overall this cruise was almost everything the expensive glossy brochures promised, with the exception of the BATHTUB. We NEEDED a bathtub to manage a medical condition. The brochure showed the luxury Suite of our choice was shown to have a bathtub however the bathtub was not included during the final fitout of the newly built, brand new Scenic Jasper Spaceship. Despite paying for this amenity almost 22 months before departure, Scenic didn't deem this matter important enough to mention prior to our embarkation on the Scenic Jasper. This said,if the bathtub had been included, we can confidently say this was a really wonderful holiday. Personally I could not participate in many of the activities due to pain levels which are normally managed through a long soak in a deep, hot bathtub. So a word of caution, make sure the amenities you pay for are definitely included in your Suite, before you pay the full amount of your cruise.

It would have been perfect.....

Cabin Review

Cabin BJ204
We loved the space and roominess of the Suite. The balcony was a truly valuable addition which we utilised daily, even in the middle of the European winter!
Our Cabin Steward was supremely conscientious and kept our suite immaculately clean!
The facilities in the suite were first class, from the linen to the electrical appliances (we had a PROPER hairdryer and underfloor heating!).
