We chose Scenic for this holiday on the recommendation of friends and comments on the reviews. We were not disappointed. The Scenic package we picked up from our travel agent was so well organized it was a sign of what was to come - the flights, transfers, hotel accommodation and cruise all flowed smoothly. The organization and service by staff - cabin, butler, bar, dining and ship was always friendly and attentive. The food was excellent- the quality and variety at each meal made choices difficult. It was nice to have all beverages and alcohol included, a glass of wine while cruising the river in the afternoon, a drink before dinner etc. The organization of cabins in the small space was most efficient. Tours were interesting and informative - the Taylormade system made it easy to listen to the information being presented by the guide or know what you were seeing as you sailed the rivers. The local guides were excellent, very knowledgable and enthusiastic about the sites they were sharing with us. The local wines, menu items, and entertainment reflective of the area added to the regional flavour. The enrichment activities- Vienna concert, Sounds of Music concert, Oktoberfest, castle dinner, were all very special and memorable events. All combined to make this a most enjoyable holiday. As everything was included in the trip price before leaving home, the only other money spent was on local specialty coffees on our free time or souvenirs to bring home. I definitely recommend Scenic for the all inclusive value and experience and look forward to another cruise with them.

A Quality Experience!

Cabin Review

Cabin 232
The cabin was small, as is typical on river boats, but the space was well organized with plentiful cupboard space and hangers, sufficient drawers, night table space and a makeup counter. The room opened to the balcony which had 2 chairs for lounging. With the outside glass window closed, the balcony became part of the room. With the window lowered the balcony was outdoor space.
