Despite low water, itinerary changes and one ship change to Jade on the last night, Scenic handled it all seamlessly (at least to the passengers). We had to leave Budapest one day early due to low water, which caused us to miss one excursion. We could have gone, however would have required a 5-6 hour bus ride. The tour guides, particularly for the Art Gallery tour in Vienna and the Nuremberg tour were outstanding. The guide for the medieval town in Czech Republic (Dieter) was disappointing and we left the tour for our own walk around after about 10 mins. We had an outstanding tour director (Richard) along with incredible service staff on the Jasper (special kudos to Marko and Sonja). Would definitely travel with them again. Entertainment on board and the special concert in Vienna was simply outstanding! Only counterpoints, 1) the staff on the Jade, which we had for only one night, appeared overly tired and service was a step down from the Jasper. and 2) we were unable to complete the departure survey as we were unable to access on-line, and there was no way to access after the fact?

We joined the Jasper from spending 3 nights pre-cruise in Prague, which was a beautiful city and the Marriott was quite nice and perfectly located in old town area. Didn't depart our hotel on a 4 hour bus ride to our ship docked in Passau/Vilshofen, and would have been nicer for either an earlier departure or shorter ride. All aspects of this cruise were very good, with service, public areas, and cabins being considered to be top-notch. A beautiful and new ship, with a crew who are really doing their best to make it a 5-star experience. The food was quite good, with plentiful quantities and well-prepared. The breakfast and lunch buffets were outstanding every day--some of the best we have had. The dinners started out a bit below par for the Scenic objective of being a premier cruise line, but got consistently better each evening. They could improve by having a more varied menu and a few more local selections from the areas we visited. Our cabin steward and butler were totally awesome and consistently went over-and-above in providing exceptional service. Our captain did an outstanding job navigating the low water levels in the Danube, but really didn't see much of him or the hotel manager other than leaving/returning to ship each day after our shore excursions. Would have been nice to see them a bit more as they were quite friendly. Our cruise director did a good job in spite of a few curves thrown at him by some of the ships local tour guides- which he seemed to handle very well. He was quite personable and took care of all of our minor issues, but he appeared a bit overworked and could have used some help from some of the many talented and energetic ship's staff, possibly Scenic needs to create a "trainee CD" program like we saw on our prior cruises with Uniworld, to help assist in herding the flock while ashore. The shore excursions were considered "very good" to "excellent" and will only get better as this new ship and staff get more familiar with the local stops and local guides. Overall, this was a very enjoyable cruise and we would love to try Scenic again in the future. Next time we'll cruise in spring or fall as it was blazing hot each day which had a little bit of an impact on our overall enjoyment of shore excursions and on-deck time. Read Less
