Sail Date: Oct 2018

Chose this cruise to see the scenery, castles, and towns as we cruised along the Danube and the Rhine and the fact we would not have to pack for all 15 days. Actually we only cruised 1 day total in the daytime, the rest was a series of long bus trips, 3 ship changes and a few night in hotels and some cruising at night. The Ruby was the last ship but no space to enter all 3.

This was all due to low water levels in the rivers which Scenic knew about long before our departure date but failed to inform us. We were not given the option to cancel or change sailing dates. I tried to correspond with Scenic prior to our departure when I suspected a problem, but had no response.

The city excursions were good and we had very good local guides. These were hard to enjoy after our long bus trips and room changes.

Cabin Review

Nothing 5 star here. We could not use the balcony 80% of the time since we were in port directly beside an other ship. No view except another cabin and in one case a day overlooking the other ships kitchen.
