Our 6th (and by far, best) river cruise! Great cabin; love the unique windows to close off the balcony and make it part of the cabin. Our butler was outstanding and responsive to every request. Food and bar service outstanding. Cruise Director, Patrick, was super as were all of the crew. Particularly like their Scenic Free Choice tours and the opportunity to wander off on your own with their GPS headset system...found it particularly great while transiting the Rhine and. getting great info on the historical sights on either side of the ship. Every one of our local tour guides was well informed and entertaining. Liked not having to tip guide and bus driver...definitely a plus! Really appreciate all inclusive tour...hate signing chits for everything and having to pay for "extra" tours. Mini bar in cabin was always kept stocked. Had a small party in our cabin and the butler arranged for champagne and hors d'oeuvres. Will definitely pay the little extra to sail with Scenic again!

5 Star Plus....best of our 6 river cruises by far!!

Cabin Review

Cabin 314
Definitely worth the extra money to have a Royal Suite...nice sitting room with couch. Movable divider to close off the sleeping area from lounge. Very nice large screen TV. Bathtub and shower a nice feature.
