We chose this cruise because of the luxurious Scenic cruise spaceship and the wonderful Douro scenery. The Portuguese staff on board were wonderful, their service, knowledge, friendliness and professionalism were the best we have ever had on a Scenic tour! We had a Balcony Suite which was very comfortable and so clean and well appointed it looked brand new! We had a superb Cruise Director and brilliant Tour Guides, Miguel and Inez, exceptional, friendly and knowledgeable. Our waiters and bar staff were great and our Butler, Miguel, so helpful and practical. The food in the Crystal Dining was superb for all meals and the special meal in the Portobello was fantastic. The weather was colder and wetter, than we expect. The excursions were well planned, very interesting and with high quality guides. The best ones were Lamego and Salamanca (don’t miss the Art DecoGallery, Casa Lis). The highlight of the entertainment was the classic concert, with a string quartet, and super quality baritone and soprano singers, in Porto and at the Church of St Francis. Overall we found Scenic to be high quality, relaxing, good value for money and we will definitely be booking with them again.

Doubly delightful Douro
