We explored the embarkation port before we sailed. Embarkation and disembarkation both very smooth. Cabin smaller than expected but very well appointed. Staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful. The choice of excursions was excellent Although we had visited Budapest and Vienna before we still found new and interesting places to visit. e.g. the hospital in the caves in Budapest. Amsterdam however had nothing new to offer. As we travelled through Austria and Bavaria besides historic towns we enjoyed the charming villages on our excursions. We sampled every kind of sausage and beer in Austria and visited every Christmas shop. We may need to have two Christmas trees this year. Perhaps the highlight was the champagne reception and orchestral evening in Vienna - wonderful music singing and ballet in splendid surroundings. We would travel with Scenic in the future and will certainly recommend the company to family and friends.
