Sail Date: Sep 2019

Booked with Scenic because of there percieved reputation as being the best. One of , if not, the most expensive operators in both river and sea cruising and both my wife and myself expected do get much more than we actually got. We were supposed to have a butler service to introduce us to the cabin. Never saw one in the two weeks of cruise.

The food was distinctly average at best. Spaghetti undercooked and tasteless, potatoes undercooked and could not be cut with a knife. Fish served nearly raw. Steak undercooked to that requested, it almost mooed at me it was so raw.

I've travelled Silverseas, Seabourn and Regent so I know the standard of food that should be presented to guests consistently.

Cabin Review

Supposed to have a butler, we did not see one in two weeks on board.

The cabin attendants servicing the rooms were helpful and curtious and generally did a hood job.
