Thought it might be good from past cruises with scenic but very disappointing. Our panorama suite was not as expected from literature and video. Definitely not value for money. The table and chairs were not suitable for eating a room service meal. The balcony was no bigger than those on ordinary rooms. The noise from the engines kept you awake and the vibration made everything move, rattle, tinkle and roll! What food we had in our room was cold as these panorama suites are at the back of the boat miles from the kitchen. The food in the dining room was not as good as it was on our last cruise with Scenic. Standards seem to be slipping... The crew tried hard to please as always but the whole experience seemed to be geared to what was easiest for Scenic. Up at 6.30 for leaving the ship! Then locked out of our room at 8 am as they started to get the ship ready for next cruise. Great way to finish your Scenic Luxury Enriching Cruise I think not, Never again.

Poor value for money
