This was our first River cruise. We were interested to see how Scenic compared to Seabourn as we have been on 2 of their cruises & were delighted with every aspect. Gladly, Scenic exceeded our expectations & was on a par with Seabourn. From the food, service, staff, comfort, attention to detail & enjoyment. We were happy that all drinks & alcohol were included as this didn't seem very clear on the paperwork. We like that the tips & food are included also, so that we didn't have to worry about money. We enjoyed staying 2 nights in Poto Sheraton pre cruise. We would like to make a special mention to Maria Helena, Tiago, Sophia, Miguel, Jose, Rodrigues,Fillipe & our Brazilian room assistant. I would only request that there was a fitness class i.e yoga later in the day about 5pm. We enjoyed the excursions but having a toilet on the coaches would be helpful, as the queues in restaurants for the ladies loo were ridiculous.
Compact but well thought out, plenty of hidden places to store our clothes. Our wardrobe was very stiff & we had difficulty opening it & we were amongst the younger group of passengers. I think the elderly would have struggled to open it at all. It was exceptionally clean & our room assistant did a fantastic job. We are very fussy about cleanliness & did not have any issues.
We did a bus tour for a couple of hours but there is a lot of traffic. We previously did it on foot but it took all day.View All 45 City Tour Reviews
Excellent Golden City. Stunning cathedrals & architecture not to be missed.
