We chose this cruise because we enjoyed our previous Scenic cruise in 2018 from Budapest to Amsterdam, and because we wanted to visit the Bordeaux area and then take advantage of the cruise extension to Madrid. It was a very memorable experience: the food was excellent, the service outstanding and the excursions were very interesting and efficiently run. All the crew were friendly and welcoming and the cruise director was very efficient and amusing company. In Madrid our Scenic cruise director was very pleasant and went above and beyond to make everyone feel comfortable. The hotel was very central and the two excursions (a city tour and a visit to the Prado art museum) were very well organized. We also had a very enjoyable dinner with the whole group which consisted of guests from the Porto cruise as well as ten of us from the Bordeaux cruise. Overall, our holiday was a great success and we would recommend Scenic to anyone looking for a stress free enriching experience.

It was a very pleasant experience. Everything went very well.

Cabin Review

Cabin
The room was well designed and comfortable. The housekeeping standards were exceptionally good: our cabin was nearly always cleaned buy the time we came back from breakfast and all our needs were efficiently supplied.
