First Scenic Cruise

Scenic Opal Cruise Review by oakgum

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Dec 2018
  • Destination: Europe River

Because we saw the cruise on Getaway and wanted to see the Christmas lights and markets of Europe. This was our first ever cruise and it will certainly be hard to top. Scenic thought if everything. Everything on this cruise was well organised especially free choice excursions. Nothing seemed to trouble the staff and they were excellent and helpful. The dining facilities and food were excellent and if anyone went hungry well that was their fault. The butler service was excellent as well, all staff made our first cruise that much more enjoyable. The only downside I would say was the dress standards. The A-Z booklet in the cabin recommended that no shorts were to be worn in the dining room and it was preferable for men to wear jackets to dinner. Very few of the guests took notice of this. Some even wore baseball caps in the lounge and dinning area, which to me is not the place for these items.

Cabin Review

Cabin Diamond 315

The cabin was well appointed and we did make use of the mini bar. There was enough wardrobe space which was surprising and we had plenty of hangars. If more hangars are required, all we had to do was ask the butler service. The balcony was excellent as we were able to sit there even in chilly weather. The bed was very comfortable and we had access to WiFi in the cabin. Housekeeping staff were very friendly and the young lady who looked after our cabin was excellent.
