  3. Scenic Opal
From the time we arrived until our departure everything ran with military precision. Our bags were put on the bus at Budapest airport and the next time we saw them they were laid out on the bed in our cabin. The Scenic Opal was first class, with first class amenities. The staff were first class, nothing being to much trouble. Patric, our butler for the duration of the cruise couldn't have been more helpful. The entire staff deserve a pat on the back as does the cruise director who kept everyone informed on a daily basis as to upcoming events. The food was a standout, with fantastic dining, unbelievable. The choice of excursions covered many and varied aspects of European life and attractions. Disembarkation was smooth (although we did not want to leave,having been thoroughly spoilt ). Bags left at the cabin door turned up at Amsterdam airport, staff even directed us to the appropriate airline check in counter. All in all a great trip and at that time of year the trees were in their Autumn colors. Well done Scenic.

Can't wait to go again

Cabin Review

Cabin 330
First class.
From the personalized monitor which outlined the upcoming days events and menu, to the powered balcony window, you couldn't want better.
The bed was comfortable, shower great, bathrobes, well stocked mini bar, room safe.
