We were happy with the cruise overall but very disappointed with the size of the cabin and the engine noise, couldn't sleep without earplugs.Also still trying to work out why we paid extra for diamond class couldn;t see any difference other than the decks.The dining room was at times very disorganised and also waiting for drinks to be ordered and served .I think that the cruise was overpriced and didn't live up to their web pictures.Laundry arrangements on board were very poor considering what they charge should be part of the package.The staff were at times hit and miss with service as they seemed to be under staffed.The cleaners were excellent and didn't miss a beat with the cabins cleaning and were very helpful with peoples needs. Overall I think that these cruises are very over priced and we felt very let down as we expected a lot better as they are supposed to be five star.We will never go on a river cruise again because of our experience overall.Any one going on a Scenic river cruise needs to check the cabin location due to the noise.

Good Cruise
