Review for Scenic Jasper to Europe - All

First Time Cruiser • Age 60s

First ever river cruise and Scenic went way beyond our expectations. The crew were so hard working, polite and respectful. The food and drink superb. We had a junior balcony suite which was just perfect for us. We went on all the excursions including the cycling ones. All were very well organised and executed. The ship was kept exceptionally clean by the house keeping team. Scenic tailor ...

So, let's start with the ugly. Scenic, as a company, is the worst at communication I have literally ever seen. We were, unfortunately, on our own to get to the ship since we arrived in Amsterdam 4 days early, and once you sent someone an e-mail they would answer you once and literally never answered you again (assuming they answered you). Even my travel agent was waiting on the phone for 2 ...

The whole event was a disaster form beginning to the end. Even when the Jade broke down with engine failure towards the end of our trip to see the Dutch tulip fields, it was not the worst problems with which had to engage. My wife & I have traveled previously by sea & river, mostly thanks to Silversea & Uniworld both excellent. The vast majority of our unfortunate fellow passengers on the ...

Very disappointing end to our cruise

The cruise started off really good and we were just getting into it, when the ship had engine failure. Whilst that is not necessarily the fault of Scenic as these things happen, its how it was dealt with. We had to immediately pack so that evening was completely ruined. We spent all the following day on and off the coach so the hotel could be sorted and we didn't know where we were going until ...

The Scenic Jade experienced a trip interruption due to mechanical failure 5 days into the cruise. I won't go into all the ensuing inconveniences, but even before that, we were unimpressed with the food and overall adherence to the schedule. On the plus side, our cabin was comfortable and the complimentary laundry service was very good. We only used the advertised butler service once, but it ...

Unable to get hold of anyone at scenic prior to the cruise for some up to date information on Covid testing. Several emails and phone calls going unanswered but then email received one day prior to sailing. Too late to be helpful. All aboard and then we had noise problems coming from somewhere in the boat (not other people) and had to change cabins on night 4 as the "fix" they tried after a ...

In 2015 we sailed with Scenic down the Danube from Budapest to Nurenberg and it was 5 star. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about this cruise. The difficulties began even prior to leaving home. Their website was basically out of commission for months, and phone contact was nearly impossible. When you were able to get through on the phone after waiting for hours, it was clear that Scenic ...

We chose this pricier cruise as a treat, expecting high levels of service and choices along the way. We were patient with rather shambolic service, as they were a new tea, and very pleasant. Odd noises specific to our cabin caused disturbed sleep, but we were about to enjoy a change of cabin when the engines broke down( it had only been in service for 10 days since lockdowns). We couldn't ...

Christmas Wonderland cruise - Amsterdam to Budapest 2019

Review for Scenic Opal to Europe - River Cruise

This was our first Scenic river cruise, which was advertised as a “Christmas Wonderland”. There wasn’t any Christmas wonderment about it. The only decorations were a tree in the entrance, one in the lounge and 2 foam snowflakes on the windows in the lounge. In the dining room a small table decoration per table. That was it, no lights etc. We parked next to a few ships who were beautifully ...

We have done previous Scenic River Cruises and loved them. We wanted to immerse ourselves in all things European Christmas with the luxury of scenic. However Scenic didn’t provide anything Christmas on this cruise. Lacking Christmas decoration, no special Christmas Eve dinner and no special Christmas Day festival. Very disappointing. This cruise was at the end of the season and Scenic Crystal was ...
