This was our fourth Scenic cruise and we have to admit it was the best one yet. That's not to say the previous ones weren't excellent, because they were. It was just everything about this particular cruise made it so memorable. As usual, everything on the ship was pristine, the staff were brilliant notably the cruise director Sonja who ensured everything ran smoothly and was a bundle of energy. Restaurant manager Doru who once finding my wife was vegetarian ensured her dietary requirements were more than met! Robert, the chef was a culinary master and special mention to our two main waiters, Cattalin and Eduardo.

Our cabin attendant Thomas was first class and our butler Coco always at hand.

All in all an excellent experience, enjoyed all the excursions and the company of our fellow passengers who predominantly Australian were great fun and a pleasure to be with. In between the cruise, our transfer both from airport to ship and visa versa went without problem, Thank you Scenic for everything.
