We went with family, No children. Children would be board but it was great for adults. Our travel agent was amazing and helped us with the booking. Scenic looked after everything else. Hotel/airport transfers were done with high end buses and professionals. We stayed at the hotels recommended by scenic and were not disappointed. The meals were amazing. It sucks to be home and try to figure out what to cook after having everything done for us. The quality was fantastic. The entertainment was great. Our cruise director was fantastic. After cruising many times before it was nice doing a small boat. If you worry about getting sea sick, dont. The rivers are very calm. We live in a city with locks so it was a different experience being in a ship going through the locks. Overall an amazing trip. I would recommend Scenic to anyone. I would defiitely go again. I would only suggest not the last cruise of the season. Read Less

We loved Scenic because their balconies offered an automatic glass window that you could raise to lower to expand the bedroom space and allow us to enjoy the river scenery. They also offered multiple choices of excursions each day and all were included. The tailor made devices were cumbersome to use on the tours but here helpful to point our sites while on the river. The staff were superb and the food choices were fabulous. The cruise director was exceptional at accommodating any request by guests and ensure we all had a fabulous experience. We loved starting in Budapest and cruising to Amsterdam so the 68 lift locks came first then we had an easier cruise into Holland. We had great weather --22-28 degrees. The water was low but we only were stuck in the mud at one point when we moved to the side of the Rhine to let another river cruise ship go by. There were days when we had to close the sun deck as the the clearance to the bridges was so tight. The concert in Palace Lichenstein in Vienna and the Sounds of Music in Salzberg were highlights as was the Sundown evening in Aggstein Castle. Dining was open and earliest you could have dinner was 7:00pm. But after the excursions and the pre-dinner entetrainment eg. violinist, string quartet etc. made it seem not so late to eat. The gym was small and had only 2 bicycles but we made do. I would love to do another Scenic cruise SOME DAY! Read Less

This was a once in a lifetime cruise for myself & my husband. Our cousins had been on 3 before and desperately wanted us to go with them on their 4th. So it started, we were picked up from the airport and transferred to a Hotel served drinks and canapes before being taken by coach to our boat. Upon entering we where greeted by Miguel and his very professional crew aboard Scenic Pearl for the start of our Moselle Rhine cruise . Our luggage and embarkation went very smoothly (obviously done many times before) we were seated in the lounge area with a welcome drink where we where put at ease with a talk by Miguel. They obviously travel & work as a family and we were made to feel part of that family from the very start. Excited we were taken to our cabins & not disappointed they were very clean & smelt fresh. Our Butler Costin was very professional and delivered exceptional services always with a smile to die for. The dining staff were 2nd to none, and special compliments to the head chef Mr Buti. Most of our spare time was spent in the lounge & bar area where Antonio,handled the bar like he was playing the violin with style. Richard our cruise director never failed to impress us with his knowledge, enthusiasm, and dedication to making sure that we had the best of everything even when things beyond his control like being held up at locks that would throw all arrangements out the window late at night and have everything organized by morning . It was awesome to see when in port and their was loading to be done all hands were on deck. A mammoth job done by great teamwork. If there were any complaints it was that the 4 last port stops didn't really have much in the way of souvenir shops (started from Basel) so don't leave shopping till then. And maybe a little more dancing music on board for the young at heart. Everything about this cruise was exceptional from beginning to end. Compliments to Miguel,and to all 51 of your children Costin beautiful Daniela, Ramona, Haris, Tibor, Marion, Octavain, Branko, Marina, Antionio,Tibor, Sasa, Dominika, to name but a few thank you for the memories.
