Overall a top drawer experience. Very little to fault. Felt the tour guide in Budapest was a bit difficult to follow at times, but all other guides were professional, knowledgeable, and entertaining. Chef and dining room staff superb. Also a big thank you to the support staff e.g. cabin crew and cleaning staff. The excursions were spot on in terms of local interest. Coach journeys were sometimes a little lengthy, but you can't do anything about the geographical location of the Danube! The evening entertainment was pleasant, and although the pianist/ guitarist was good, sometimes peace and quite is a preferred option (Americans guests are noisy enough). The Tour Director, although sometimes tested to the limit, was calm and professional, and kept the whole excursion running like clockwork, He should be made Chief Executive of Scenic immediately. We will sail with you again, when we have saved up a few pounds. Would 100% recommend Scenic to all our friends.

Staff superb, and choice of excursions varied and interesting
