Scenic Diamond Cruise Review by Karen4005

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

Scenic is an Australian line and as residents of the USA we wanted to travel with less of us and more of a variety of diverse nationalities. We had a blast. The Australians, New Zealanders, Canadians, Brits and Scots were so much fun.

Scenic is upscale but not stuffy and definitely not formal. We did have a butler (used rarely since we are not needy).

Likes:

All inclusive everything...yes all tips, etc.

Upscale without being stuffy, casual atmosphere

Good selection of wines...we are not drinkers by day but do like to have a good wine in the evening

Tailormade - our GPS guide if we decided to not take a guided tour

Staff - attentive without being pushy...captain was visible and talked to everyone onboard

Choices of tours - at least 3 daily plus the tailormade

Gourmet dining option - one night optional choice with 6 courses and wine pairing

Chateau gourmet dinner - what an event

More active than some other river cruise lines (i.e. Viking)

Bordeaux itinerary

Just OK:

Food in dining room - being a bit of a foodie snob, just not gourmet enough, more mediocre

Having a balcony and being docked against a port wall
