Ship was beautiful, cabins were huge very spacious the bathroom was a very generous size with a amazing shower. The dining on board is the best dinning experience i have ever had the waiting staff very polite and knowledgeable regarding wines and dishes being served. The port of call were fantastic great choice with very knowledgeable guides who were happy to answer any questions along the way. Seeing the Eiffel Tower illuminated and sparkling was a great start to our cruise. Service we received from every single staff,crew member was brilliant. The whole experience from start to finish was seamless Entertainment was very low key which was fine, nice music playing in the background each evening. I would 110% recommend a Scenic Cruise to friend and family i can guarantee you will be blown away. Looking forward to planning another one and i know Scenic will be my first choice every time.

Food, luxury and caring was all part of this cruise. I am only 41 years old and won this trip on a tv show . I was a little worried that I would find it a little slow for my style but was totally wrong. When we got on the ship we were welcomed with open arms and made feel so welcome. The cabin was gorgeous and so clean and just pure luxury. It was all the little items that made it feel like home. The staff were always so happy and nice and every single time we walked past someone they said good morning. The port and shore excursions where well thought out and gave us so many options , which i loved, as if you wanted to be active you could be or take a slower paced one. The food was five star. It was some of the most delicious food I have ever tasted. Room service was available if I was too tired to eat out and was just as delicious. The food was always fresh and the presentation was stunning. The food menus covered all types of taste , vegan, vegos etc. The beverages where also stunning. The knowledge of food and wines was amazing from the staff. I just can recommend Scenic enough. I was made feel like a princess and the staff was amazing. I would say to anyone who has the oportunitiy to go on this cruise to do it. I made many wonderful memories and friends and wish I could do these cruises with Scenic yearly. Well done Scenic, I can see why you are one of the best cruise lines in the world. Many thanks to you all Read Less

Cruise was faultless with staff being exceptional. We had a fantastic Cruise Director who ensured the trip went without any hassles. He was very friendly and went out of his way to meet people's needs. The cruise stopped at some ports for a couple of days to enable us to take tours to some areas further away. We went to the Somme area, for example, and also the D-Day landing sites. It meant some longish bus trips bit you got to see the countryside. Guides on all of our excursions whether they were the longer trips of just town/city visits were very good. Our guide to the Somme was exceptional and he helped bring the whole story to life. We dodn't do a lot of sailing during daylight hours but just enough to see some of the lovely houses on France along the Seine. Staff, as mentioned, were brilliant. Very friendly and they didn't know the meaning of the word 'no'. Top, top class. Food was also brilliant with lots of choice. Very difficult to fault. We've sailed with Scenic before and will go again in a couple of years. Read Less

We spotted an exceptionally good price on a 6 day, 5 night cruise from Paris to the English Channel and jumped as fast as we could. The cruise was a charter by Legendary Journeys and, with the exception of initial problems in receiving information because of a computer issue, the trip was a real joy and we regret not also taking the "return trip" to Paris The Scenic Gem is a new design for cabins. Comments are below. Our desire on the trip was to relax and enjoy walking around small French towns at a comfortable rate, The trip worked perfectly for that and we were able to enjoy the company of good friends we met on the trip. The food was very good and the Chef was available for special requests. We totally enjoyed the dining experience from Breakfast to late night snacks. The entertainment was limited to a single musician playing the piano and guitar, as well as singing. Sounds concerning, but this guy was both experienced and talented and worked the room with skill. Service was excellent. Benjamin was the Legendary Cruise Director and spent a lot of time helping us contact embassy (my wife's purse with passport and green card were stolen in Paris before the cruise) and we really appreciated his efforts. All other staff were very friendly and worked hard to ensure you enjoyed your cruise. I was impressed to the point that I want to take the same ship next year? Visits to towns along the river ere a joy to stroll around and we would enjoy visiting each one again so I would rate them 5 Stars. Overall the cruise was fun of good food, great new friends and excellent service. Strongly recommended, Read Less
