Down the Rhine

Sail Date: August 2017
Destination: Europe
Embarkation: Amsterdam
A friend we were traveling with found Scenic and we just took his recommendation. The ship was excellent and the crew were superb. The only disappointment was our butler, who did very little and for the the odd time that we asked for something he still didn't come through. Otherwise, the entire experience was excellent.

The shore excursions were very well organized and we were very pleased that all the gratuities were included.

The motor-assisted bicycles were also a great amenity. We used two of them on one occasion and thoroughly enjoyed them. They were also very easy to learn to use.

The meals were outstanding and the chef took great pride in his craft. The selection of wines was mediocre but sufficient. The bar selection was likewise very good and the bar staff carried the torch for service excellence.

Overall, we had good value for our money and will likely cruise with Scenic again. Less

We found the cabin a bit tight but sufficient for our needs.
