Prague to Budapest, including flight arrangements--land portion, onboard experience, tours, flights and transfers all absolutely top notch. We had an unbelievable onboard tour director (Richard Grey), staff and their service were excellent, food and beverage terrific. Tours were really well planned, and with Scenic having its own bus fleet following the ship, logistics always worked. Some unique experiences (e.g., concert in Vienna, piano virtuoso in Budapest) made the tours all the more enjoyable. Tour guides were knowledgeable, well spoken, and personable. With food and beverage all inclusive, it was very refreshing not to have to sign for each drink, etc. Our shipboard account was less than $100, all related to laundry. Food, both in the main dining room and in the specialty restaurants, was consistently excellent, as was the waitstaff. For the land portions in Prague and Budapest, the hotels selected were centrally located, and rooms were well appointed. A wonderful experience all around--wish we had had another week onboard. Our first experience with Scenic--will not be our last.

Cabin Review

Cabin PD311
Roomy and well appointed, with more than adequate storage space. Shower was not cramped.
