Sail Date: Oct 2019

We have just returned from Scenic Tours’ Spectacular South of France river cruise. This was our fourth river cruise with Scenic and it was every bit as enjoyable as the previous three.

The crew on the Scenic Sapphire could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Our room was cleaned perfectly every morning and every evening by our wonderful room maid, Gabi.

The waiters in the lounge and restaurant provided us with fast, efficient and friendly service. We were very well-served by them during our voyage by the waiters (I hope the spellings are correct) Bogdan, Mihal, Valentin (thanks for the extra butter!) and Radzan. Istfan, the executive chef, is a creative wonder. His meals were always delicious and very nicely flavoured. Each morning, we started the day with a fresh, tasty omelette prepared expertly by chef Gabriel. As well, other crew members whose names, regrettably, we have missed or forgotten, were always polite and eager to please.

Cabin Review

The cabin was small but efficiently designed and furnished.

Port Reviews


The Popes' palace is not to be missed. The luxury and splendor of this edifice compares to the poverty and struggle of ordinary people during the middle ages.
