We chose Scenic because of the high level of service our travel agent mentioned. There are no surprises as to the cost as there are no up charges.
Everything about the food and drink is top notch. The crew is fantastic. The shore excursions offered are great. In fact, you could do this same cruise, pick the opposite excursions, and have a totally different experience.
We chose the excursions to Szentendre, Salzburg, Bratislava, and Regensburg. There were also tactical stops in Dürnstein and Melk.
Our cabin was fairly roomy and very comfortable. I think having the balcony as an extension of the room is better than having the balcony outside. We still had the extra space and didn’t need to sit outside when it was chilly.
My happy place on the ship was a heated patio near the bow of the ship. We had great views while cruising the Danube.
Overall, an excellent value.
The cabin is fairly roomy and comfortable.
