A fantastic first cruise!
"Being in our early 40s we joked about how the average age on the river cruise would be a few decades our senior but we wanted to have this travel experience with my parents.It was truly an 'all inclusive' experience with no additional costs once onboard...."Read More

I've had the privilege of traveling throughout Europe over the years. These journeys typically involved extensive planning, such as: booking transportation, accommodation, and mapping out excursions and activities. Then, there’s the challenge of navigating transitions between towns; driving down narrow and unfamiliar streets (on the opposite side of the road in some countries); figuring out check ...

Off ship excursions included a variety of options. Locations, frequently requiring long bus rides were worthwhile, despite inclement October weather.Tour guides were pleasant, helpful, and well informed. Our cruise director was excellent and staff would go out of their way to provide cabs, directions, maps, and walking tour suggestions. Highlights included visits to Giverny, D day beaches, and ...

This was our second river cruise. In 2018, we booked Scenic for a Danube cruise from Nuremberg to Budapest. We had an excellent time despite low water levels in some parts of the river during that trip. This recent trip began with a single night extension in Paris at the Edouard 7 Hotel. This hotel was beautiful and in the heart of the Opera District. The Scenic Gem is a beautiful ship although ...

The Paris and Normandy destinations was what we were drawn to. But having the scenic gem being all inclusive was such a big draw for us. The staff in both the restaurant and bar went above and beyond in the service The daily tours were well managed and very informative. I really enjoyed the Monet gardens. Also the Canadian Juno site was really interesting and very well managed for the time ...

Everything about this cruise from Paris - Honfleur - Paris was excellent, with the exception of the food at dinner. Superb staff that are welcoming, efficient, kind and always ready to offer assistance. Public areas, cabin and bathroom very well designed for space and comfort. Thoughtful amenities in the cabins such as hiking sticks and water bottles. Good entertainment offering on the cabin ...

This cruise was recommended to us by friends. We were extremely impressed with the quality and professionalism of the staff. We were met as soon as we landed at the airport and very quickly driven to the ship. Arrangements were also made for us to catch a train to Amsterdam at the end of the cruise. The ship is very clean and the room was very comfortable. Laundry services were readily ...

What an outstanding cruise! So glad a travel agent friend of ours clued us into this special experience. This was our first-time river cruising and it was exceptional. Small ships are the way to go. The crew was personable, smiling, and service-oriented at all times. The ship was spotless. Food was fabulous, lots of variety. Plentiful choices for vegetarians. Restaurant Manager ...

We shopped around quite a bit - considered Scenic, Avalon, Viking, Amadeus, AMA-waterways, and others. Ultimately chose Scenic because there was a timely Travelzoo (!) 50% off special going on during our booking. Boy, the vacation we had on the river cruise was well-worth the money spent (and looking back, probably also worth more than what we spent). We sought a Seine river cruise primarily ...

We chose this cruise for the destination--Paris to Normandy, and for the quality of the food, wine, service, day excursions and entertainment...all excellent. All of the crew were gracious all of the time to passengers, taking the extra step to make everything wonderful for each of us. Day excursions went to important places and were planned well--coordinated buses, excellent knowledgeable ...

We chose this cruise as it was something my elderly mother and father had always wanted to do. My father passed away before they had the chance to go so we did a mother daughter trip. The ship was beautiful and the staff were incredible with their service no matter what role they had on the boat. The food was amazing - as was the wine selections it was truly a wonderful experience and a wonderful ...
