Cruising back to Porto on a beautiful November afternoon.

This was our second cruise, and second with Scenic; the holiday fully justified our decision to travel with them again. Almost everything about the trip was perfect, from airport transfers at the start through to the final day.

The ship, Scenic Azure, was in excellent condition; the public areas were always clean (and kept clean throughout the day). Our balcony suite was comfortable, particularly the electrically adjustable bed.

For a relatively small ship (92 passengers), the food offerings were remarkable - I didn't try everything on offer during the week. Main meals were in the Crystal restaurant - buffet for breakfast and lunch, table service for dinner. At dinner there were always three choices of starter, main and dessert that changed daily, plus two or three alternative choices. Food was consistently well prepared and presented. There was also the option of lunch in Portobello's - soup, bread, freshly prepared pasta, two or three desserts. And through the afternoon there were always snacks (and cake!) available.
