We did a 3 day pre cruise in Lisbon, the transfer from the airport to the Sheraton, well we waited over an hour for the rude gentleman, and we were not the only ones who had issues, Scenic you have to do better. The stay here was very good, our Scenic Rep Pedro was excellent, a good orientation that evening, followed by a delicious meal at the Sheraton where we met fellow guests and our table of six, gave way to new friends for our cruise. The room was well appointed,buffet breakfast each morning was delicious, staff pleasant and attentive in dining room. Reception staff was also pleasant and informative, no issues checking in or out. Porters were also pleasant. Lunch and dinner were on your own, except for Sunday evening which was arranged in Lisbon, by coach, with a wine pairing, we had cod, duck was also on the menu, delicious. Saturday, was a morning Lisbon tour by coach followed by a visit to Sintra Palace, beautiful but had a lot of stairs. We stopped at a cafe for a delicious desert and coffee , and time for shopping. Back in Lisbon we went to dinner across from the Sheraton, an Italian restaurant with delicious food. Sunday was a free day, Pedro had arranged a walking tour to a beautiful botanical garden, and a museum tour if you wanted. Our transfer to Porto with stop at Coimbra was very good, some touring of the university and lunch on our own, with time for shopping

Cabin Review

Cabin 311
Beautiful, well appointed, plenty of room. Our bed with controls to raise head or feet up or down was appreciated. Shower with various controls , lovely. Our cabin attendant Francisca, very attentive. Our butler, Filipe was there always to assist us no matter where we were on ship. Enjoyed early morning coffee and pastries in the room. Always had plenty of bottled water to drink.
