Sail Date: Oct 2019

This was our first river cruise and 6th cruise overall. We were so looking forward to the Holiday Markets trip since our Danube trip was cancelled last year due to water levels.

Unfortunately we were greatly disappointed.

We expected the ship to be 'decorated' for the holidays. There were 2 small Christmas trees and a tiny vase of greens on some of the tables. No lights, no holiday music, nothing. Then we anticipated being in port to see all the lights Scenic advertises with. but never were.

Cabin Review

We were on the lower deck. Was adequate with plenty of storage and would stay on this deck again. I believe the upper decks found a holiday gift in their cabins,. We did not. Robes and slipper provided and L'Occitane soaps, etc.
