Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: Europe River

This was our first time on a Scenic Cruise. We chose this cruise (Breathtaking Bordeaux) because it had many wine-related excursions and destinations. Scenic was recommended by travel agent, even though she had never sent a client on Scenic previously. The Scenic Diamond ship was lovely and the cruise did not disappoint! We loved the staff and crew. Cruise director was excellent. Nice mix of free time and excursions. Food and wine were very good. (And plentiful!) Bus drivers and guides all very skilled and knowledgeable. Service was excellent and excursions were great. We booked a balcony suite and it was nice to have the extra bit of space, and a place to relax with the view. Cabin was kept absolutely spotless. Scenic’s all-inclusive model is fantastic. Even tipping is included, which is great. Highly recommend and would definitely travel with Scenic again. They have some wonderful itineraries to choose from.

Cabin Review

Cabin Balcony suite 321

Scenic’s balconies do add size to the cabins, which is nice. If the weather is very warm, it does get toasty in there, though! When the door to the balcony is opened, the AC (understandably) turns off, so if it’s very warm, you might not be using that space. Space is very well thought out, in terms of closets, drawers, under bed storage, etc. Good sized shower. Everything was kept sparkling clean!
