We chose this cruise because of its inclusivity. Once we boarded and for the duration of our trip we did not have to worry about money (except for souvenirs). We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, from the greeting at our arrival to the smooth transition when we left the boat at the end of our journey. The staff were experienced and helpful, the food was top notch, the excursions well planned and the enriched excursions were superb. I cannot day enough good things about this trip. It was our first river cruise and a great success. We are already planning our next river cruise and it will be with Scenic again. The length of the cruise was just right. For our first cruise it was the best. It gave us a taste of the life style. We spent three days in Amsterdam before the cruise and it was easy to transition from the hotel to the boat. At the other end we spent three days in Budapest after the cruise and the staff made the transition from the boat to our hotel seamless. High praise for the cruise line and the staff.
We took this level to save on cost (used the savings to spend time in Amsterdam before the cruise and in Budapest after the cruise. The room had a large window. We only slept in the room - spent any time in the boat in the sun deck.
