We chose the Scenic River cruise based on friend's experience with their vacation. We did have to change ships from the Scenic Jasper to Jade (which was our expected ship to travel on) due to the water levels; but the transfer of ships was both seamless and painless. This easy transition was due to the professional and competent way it was handled by the crew and the explanations by our cruise director. Everything about our cruise was top of the line. The crew, especially our cruise director Cathy, were extremely friendly, professional and knowledgeable. All the excursions off the ship were interesting and wonderful to see. The on board entertainment was exceptional. All the guest appearances brought on board were wonderful. The food was awesome. All items were fresh and dishes were from the area of our cruise. The ala carte choices for dinner were wonderful with a different set of choices every night. The cabins, food and service of the crew allowed us to live in luxury for the 2 weeks we were on board. We will definitely travel with Scenic again!!

Cabin Review

Cabin 215
The cabin was very clean and comfortable. Plenty of storage space and not cramped at all. The balcony was great for relaxing on and enjoying the view.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Canal Tour
    The canal tour was very good and seeing the buildings in the city core was interesting. Unfortunately, due to being there the day after a large parade showed the downside of how large groups of people can spoil an area by leaving behind a lot of garbage. I'm sure the city people of Amsterdam will have it cleaned up in a short period of time; but it was disturbing to see how a beautiful city can be marred by garbage.

  • Cologne
    We chose to walk on our own through the city. The cathedral was awesome. Great shopping district; but our favourite was the waterfront where we got to see the local people enjoying a vintage car show and selling of their vintage and antique wares.
