We selected Scenic because of their outstanding service reputation. Porto arrival was very coordinated. We were welcomed immedialely on board and offered food and wine. The ship is new from 2017 cristening and is extremely clean. The personnel are all local and proud to show their region. Passing locks with more than 100 feet levels was exciting. We selected the included tours according to our wishes, and even did kayaking on the river. Madrid was spectacular. The meals were always original with local ingredients and delicious. With only 96 passengers from all over the world, the atmosphere was very friendly. The tour guides were certified by the local authorities and were all excited to demonstrate their extraordinary knowledge. Our Cruise Director was always happy to answer all our questions and he was present at all times. The coaches taking us to our tours were first class. One highlight was a private concert in Porto cathedral San Francisco. We highly recommend Scenic and already have booked a cruise in France next fall.

Cabin Review

Comfortable and well designed. Free mini bar and snacks. Coffee available 24 hours. Bed very comfortable. Balcony views and access great.
