The welcome at Bordeaux Airport was friendly and professional. The first coincidence was in the taxi - One of the ladies who shared it with us was living in the town in which my partner was brought up. The surprises continued as we boarded Scenic Diamond and were offered a suite upgrade which we gratefully accepted. The suite was spotless and the beds were comfortable. The balcony - with the ability to shut out the weather - was a great improvement on our recent Cunard experience. The performance of the staff was all that could be expected of a 5-star service, and then some. The operational crew headed by the British captain and his French co- Captain were particularly impressive. Docking this large vessel in fast currents was always well judged and precise. Food and drinks were excellent and extremely well presented. Shore excursions were well planned and interesting and in most places there was adequate time for personal local walks and shopping opportunities. Truly excellent value for money and certainly the best service we have experienced compared with ocean cruise lines. Only old age and potential travel insurance issues prevent us from re-booking. Well done Scenic.
