This was our first river cruise and we flew from Heathrow to Amsterdam where we met Scenic rep who saw us safely aboard Scenic Jade.The ship was all shipshape and Bristol fashion and all arriving passengers were welcomed aboard by the Captain and senior staff. Service in the restaurant could have been quicker and it did improve - as this was the first cruise of the season I shall allow for a learning curve. There was a choice of shore excursions all of which were excellent with knowledgeable guides who spoke really good English. We had a cabin on deck 1 and although small, was clean and completely adequate with comfortable beds. Plenty of choice from the lunch and dinner menus with silver service. The wines served with the meals were first class. We had a selection of on board entertainment from strings to local folklore groups. Disembarkation was extremely well organised making it smooth and easy. All in all an excellent cruise which you would have to be very picky about to find faults.

Cabin Review

Cabin 102
Spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, small but adequate. The shower was superb.
