Having cruised with Scenic before , we thought we knew what to expect and we weren't disappointed. The facilities, the cabins, restaurants and bar are all you could possibly wish for, but what stands out are the crew. Attentive, polite, but most importantly, open, friendly and always happy to chat. The excursions were excellent, although some of the bus journeys were upwards of two hours (geography can't be helped), but we enjoyed time on board as much as we did the excursions. Some words of advice : Don't just choose your cruise company / ship carefully, look at the excursions, as there is a balance to be had between a relaxed trip, and one that packs in a whole world of activities. As we're from Europe, revisiting places we went to is cost effective, but if you're travelling from further afield, you may take a different view of what each day might look like. In summary, choose your itinerary carefully, but you won't be disappointed with this company.
