We were met at the airport by a Scenic representative that got us shuttled to the spaceship and from that point on, we were very well looked after by all of the Scenic staff. All of the staff were wonderful. Our cabin and its amenities was great. We loved how the balcony became part of the room by folding back the glass partitions and lowering the top glass on the balcony rail. It was a wonderful addition to the room on the sunny days were were travelling in November! Alex, our Cruise Director was the best. He was attentive to all of the passengers, he was innovative with his talks, he was very organized, he was able to deal with all of the different passengers with ease and he made our trip fun! All of our excursions were amazing! It was great that we could choose how we wanted to travel ie. coach with guide, walking with guide or without or biking. A mix for all! The enriched excursions for everyone were a "once in a lifetime" experience like the Viennese Orchestral concert and the Salsburg dinner and musical. Wonderful!!!! The itinerary was very good. We loved travelling and seeing 5 different countries. We have often heard how wonderful river cruises are and now that we have experienced one, we would absolutely encourage anyone to go on it and we are very happy that we chose Scenic! Read Less

My Mum and Dad had cruised three times and I have watched them on getaway numerous times and thought it looked fabulous . This was one of those bucket list things and lived up to all expectations and more and am keen to go on another one . The staff couldn't do anymore for you , they were so attentive and the Cruise director Patrik was very involved and had so much positive energy . The food quality was fantastic and presentation great . The weather could have improved the cruise , but we made the most and the cruise director did a great job organising a on a ferry and other days as we could not go down the Moselle as the water level was too high . Loved the night in portobellos , it was great to see the chef creating in front of you and each dish was perfectly presented . Read Less

We booked this cruise with a number Navy Supply Corps Officer who had cruised on a different line in 2014. We cruised from Amsterdam to Basel and it was our first river cruise having done more than 30 ocean cruises primarily on Celebrity. Our experience on the Opal from the time we boarded until they dropped us off at the hotel in Zurich could NOT have been any better. We ere treated royally by everyone whether it was onboard the ship or on one of their all inclusive shore excursions. We saw all of the ship's officers more than once a day and Milan, our butler could not have been any more helpful or attentive Goran (First Officer) and Patrick.(Cruise Director) were everywhere and along with the Captain handled the luggage getting us off of the ship. We got a tour of the galley and I have no idea how Walter (the head chef) and his crew could turn out the great variety and quality of meals they served. The ship itself had plenty of space and our cabin had lots of room. We loved the up-down window that allowed us to view the passing scenery with an open or enclosed balcony at the push of a button. The lounge and dining room had plenty of seating and great staffs and top side had plenty of seating and a hot tub. There is also an exercise room that I used daily and my wife took advantage of some very friendly and expert salon services that were vry reasonably priced. I would take a Scenic cruise any chance I got and most especially on the Opal as it is hard to imagine a better crew on any ship. Read Less
