Not a superior product

Review for Scenic Opal to Europe - River Cruise

We have done 8 Viking River cruise, and have loved all of them, but booked Scenic because it’s sold as a superior more luxury product, but it is not in any way, Viking has better customer service in every way, from bar service to food services to excursions!! We booked the Royal Panorama Suite, and the room was very nice, but the butler service is a complete joke, they say they can do all these ...

'Delightful Douro' cruise lives up to its name

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, ...

Nice to tour Portugal via the Douro, but expectations were not met AND I got COVID while onboard

The ship is updated, clean and the staff are friendly and accommodating. That said, I have a few safety concerns for anyone even with slight mobility issues. There are no grab bars in/around the shower. Although the ship is relatively stable on the river, there are occasional movements (locks/docking) that could cause one to lose their balance. The ship has multiple outlets (only ...

The original cruise booking was for April 2020, but COVID got in the way delaying to our 5th attempt in October 2022. A really first-class cruise. Great staff, mainly Portuguese, superb accommodation, exceptional food and service and memorable side trips. Whilst the ship is 6 years old, its facilities are up with the more modern river ships. This experience could not have been handled ...

An absolutely a fantastic Crew very friendly and accommodating in all respects. Food was excellent with a good choice. Cabin was comfortable with tastes catered for and regular top ups, friendly maids who did a sterling job in the cabins. Although we did not use in cabin food service it was a service available. It was a pleasure to sit on the balcony with aa glass of good wine and take in ...

Very Disappointed

This was the second Scenic cruise we were on. The first was so much better than the second. There were about 20 Americans and over 100 Brits, with the balance from Canada and one Australian couple. Before I get to the particulars of the cruise, I would like to bring up one important point, The Price. When we got to talking with the other cruisers, we found out that the Brits paid from one fourth ...

We heard positive reviews of Scenic, but this cruise was better than expectations. We began with the precruise in Lisbon, where we had a nice review of the city and met a small group from our cruise (@ 20 people). This group consisted of some of the most interesting and fun people we've met, and we became friends quickly. Once on the ship, not only did we meet more interesting passengers, but ...

Very disappointing for a number of reasons, COVID being one of the main one

Review for Scenic Pearl to Europe - River Cruise

The absolute worst thing about this cruise is that Scenic apparently has a "don't ask, don't tell" policy with regards to COVID. I know that this issue has been politicized and that there is a broad spectrum of what people believe and are willing to do, but a total hands-off attitude is unacceptable to me. There is no testing required of passengers prior to boarding, either by the passengers or ...

This was our first river cruise and first time traveling post-COVID. Scenic exceeded our expectations. Service was excellent. Staff could not have been more attentive. Having several tour choices in each port was a treat. Salzburg luncheon and show was held in an eye opening location, just like the movie. Concert at Palais LIchtenstein was the highlight of the cruise. All meals were varied ...
