Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2016
  • Destination: Europe River

First I should explain that overall I had a nice cruise on Scenic and I would recommend a Scenic River Cruise.

Below is a listing of the "Good" and "Bad" experiences that I had while sailing with Scenic.

The Good:

Exceptionally clean ship and cabins.

Hard working and enthusiastic crew members.

Great wait staff in dinning rooms.

Spectacular views on excursions.

Bikes accessible for all guests at all ports.

All inclusive cruise.

Truly all inclusive. We didn’t pay a penny more than what we paid at booking!!!

A lot of good wine.

We were fortunate to have great weather on our trip.

The Bad:

We had a bad butler that didn't explain things to us.

Rear Royal Panorama Suite is excessively noisy.

Excessive noise and vibrations from engines.

Noise and cigarette smell from crew break area that are above and below rear Royal Panorama suite.

Food was not very good.

Food was catered to Europeans.

Food portions were very small.

Food was served lukewarm

Excursions are not explained in detail.

Advice ...don't book the rear Panorama Suite and be prepared to be served European food.

Cabin Review

Cabin Royal Panorama Suite 337

Noisy cabin. Crew break area is above and below the cabin. We could often smell cigarette smoke that would seep into our room from the surrounding crew break areas.

I would not recommend getting this suite. There are suites closer the the front of the ship that would be more appealing. The only benefit this suite has is the panorama window views.
