As our first cruise, I chose Scenic because I wanted all inclusive - flights, tipping, trips and excursions, food and drinks and Scenic delivered. All of the staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed or wanted. The food was delicious, varied, pleasing to the eye and to the palate. If we didn't want the selections offered, there was a menu. Wines and beers from the regions we went through were very different and all good. Excursions offered variety - bus, walking, bike, boat rides, gentle walks, something for all. The guides were well versed in the history of the towns and landmarks we saw. History came to life every day we went out. The Jade rode so well it was like being soothed to sleep at night. The countryside was vibrant with colour from the people, the buildings and even the crops looked like home, so no one was home sick. From the smooth pick up at the airport to the return at the end, Scenic did it all smoothly. Entertainment on board included Hungarian dancing and music, a zither, waltzing, violin concert and every night Henrick provided music for listening and dancing. Salt room available, work out gym, walk track upstairs, lots of chairs to sit outside on or stay in the comfortable lounge. In 2 weeks, staff became friends. We knew names and where there families are from. Our fellow passengers were mostly Aussies, fellow Canadians, Americans, British, Hungarians, Serbs, Czechs. Pretty much world nations. Wonderful first trip and it has made us want to travel again, thanks Scenic. You have a wonderful fleet of crew ambassadors.

Cabin Review

Cabin 237
Outfitted with housecoats, lovely towels, bathroom extras, pillows, walking sticks, umbrella, all that we needed. Steward Sacha was in twice a day, once to clean up and at night to turn down and give us chocolates. Balcony had a great view. Bathroom is a nice size and shower is big.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

  • Melk Abbey
    History preserved for centuries, beautiful religious garments and vessels on display. Imagine making those books by hand with the detailed printing and colour. Print is so small, I would need a microscope. Library was neat to see, all 16,000 issues

  • Nuremberg
    Nuremburg Documentation Centre was a miracle of work, compiling all the literature and films. History should not repeat itself.and people should remember what happened so we do not not let fanatics repeat these murderous acts. Seeing the train tracks with names on little blocks to represent all the Jewish people killed was very impactful

  • Niederwald Cable Car
    Taking the cable car and seeing the vineyards closeup was great. We had been looking at vineyards for days. Monument at top of unification was huge and gave a great view of the valley
