Discovering Eastern Europe

Scenic Opal Cruise Review by JohnSmart

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: May 2017
  • Destination: Europe River

We wish we had started one or two days earlier in Bucharest, it is a beautiful city and much better than we expected. The spaceship was fantastic, it looks the part and, boy it is the part. The welcome onboard was 5 star we were greeted royally and nothing disappointed us. We had high expectations and they were fully met and on occasions significantly exceeded.

We had a cabin on the top deck ( balcony suite). The suite had everything we needed, everything is so cleverly designed to maximise the space and make everything easily accessible.

The crew were fantastic nothing was too much trouble and the service was impeccable as was the quality and presentation of the food.

The onboard entertainment is limited but enjoyable - this is not a big ship, 160 or so people, and people get to know each other quickly and tend to chat away whilst enjoying the complimentary drinks.

The shore excursions are varied, you usually had 3 to choose from and there was always at least one that suited us. The Scenic Enrich events were great - we went to a local home for a real Bulgarian dinner, it was a great experience!

What we most loved was the fact that we never needed money from the moment the driver picked us up from home until he dropped us back home at the end of the tour. If you want to stay in a 5 Star hotel that travels with you then this is definitely the holiday for you.

We've booked for another Scenic River Cruise in September to Russia.
