Our first cruise with Scenic was more than I imagined it would be. Friends had travelled and spoken very highly of their experience with Scenic but nothing anyone says can prepare you for the reality. From the second we stepped on-board Scenic Opal we knew we were in for a very special 15 days. Every single detail had been taken care of - there was nothing we had to do except choose our drinks and meals, and occasionally choose which excursion we'd like to do. This was just the holiday we needed. I cannot speak more highly of the staff - they were amazing. Every staff member on board was professional from start to finish, and always courteous and friendly. Our Cruise Director, Alex, was an absolute hoot! He is the perfect person for this important role. We loved our cabin, everything we needed was provided for us, down to the space under the bed to stow all our bags! We unpacked and shoved the bags away for two weeks. Bliss! The joy of cruising so close to stunning landscapes, gorgeous villages, and a misty morning spent gliding gently past a little village - these are priceless memories for me. I could go on and on .. and on, but go do it for yourselves, it really is a most fantastic experience. We are already planning our next Scenic trip
Our cabin was a total surprise. Whoever designed the cabin put a lot of thought into getting it right. There was plenty of space to put all our luggage away neatly in the wardrobe. The bathroom layout was also excellent - enough space for all out toiletries. This cabin had more though put into it than some five star hotel rooms. No tripping over bags - there was a spot for them under the bed. In one word - perfect!
