Sail Date: Aug 2019

Essentially took this tour with another couple who where wanting to celebrate their 30th Wedding Anniversary. Despite the fact our airplane arrived well over an hour late in Prague the very approachable Scenic representative was their to greet us and take us to the local hotel. Likewise for the balance of the trip all the services from presentations by the Cruise Director, departure for excursions to opening of the restaurants were completely on time and very timely.

The Chef on our cruise provided an excellent array of culinary delights both on the buffet and a la carte services. The cut on everything from slices meats to vegetables and dessert items was flawless. I inquired with the Chef who frequently made table checks about the "secrets" about a "Clear Tomato" that was being served for lunch. Chef Broccoli was most generous and provided a recipe for this exceptional soup.

The effort put in by the entire staff of our trip was 110%. They worked well as a team and professional ignored the occasional unthinking and too casual guest.

Cabin Review

Cabin Deluxe Balcony

As mentioned above. I am 175 cm tall and had no real problem but after about a week found the space a little confining. The table we had was very useful and was used a lot but something a slight bit bigger would have been better. Somewhat tedious to store bags under the bed.

Port Reviews


Guide was perhaps a slight bit inexperienced. We got caught crossing the stree when the light change. Several times his microphone slipped out of range and he could not be heard. To uninformed like myself the political history talks seemed rather long.
