First Time Cruiser • Age 70s

This was an awesome cruise. The crew members made the experience exceptional, from the dining department to the housekeeping. The only thing I noticed was there should have been more recognition for the deck and engineering Department. I would take into account the older age of the guests and consider the hight of the chairs in the lounge also the dinning chairs that have the sides makes it a ...

This is the second time cruising with Scenic. Last year we did a five day Danube cruise as a taster as we had never been cruising before. We did lots of research and eventually plumped for Scenic. Whilst not necessarily the cheapest it was genuinely "all inclusive" . The reviews we read suggested this company's cruises ticked all our boxes. We were not disappointed. The cruise is pure luxury, ...

A most enjoyable cruise with the usual fair selection of interesting Scenic Free Choice options. The transfers to the visits all worked well. Particularly memorable were the multiple windmills, the amazing Fabrique des Lumineres and the stunningly beautiful Keukenhof Gardens. Our cabin was quite small but adequate and the balcony was useful except when the view was totally blocked by an ...

Nice ship, great crew. Thankfully, the entertainment was better than the last year or so, since they ended all the pianists. We were lucky enough to have “cover enrichment manager” (Niall) who was an excellent singer and gave a couple of great evening performances, as well as running 3 quiz evenings & playing music. Service on board is generally very good, although the cruise director did ...

Scenic staff work very hard to ensure that your cruise experience is a memorable one. The ship is spotless and the food is of excellent quality. The kitchen staff and waiters go out of their way to please you and attend to your dietary needs. The serving staff is very professional and utilize a 5 star serving style throughout the entire meal. As a suggestion, there could have been more authentic ...

I would love to give this cruise a five--and if it was just about the onboard experience I would. However, my experience with trying to book through Scenic was less than satisfactory. Recently, I took the Scenic River Cruise Black Sea Explorer. Because of a glitch in the onboard online system, I was unable to respond to the requested review. The onboard service was exemplary. Each crew ...

I would have rated this a 5 overall, except the last day of our cruise and the transfer to Bucharest was disappointing and insulting. We disembarked and then endured a three hour drive to Bucharest where we wasted the day driving in traffic in circles in the city. We got off to see the spring palace which was not all that interesting and the guided rushed, spoke in monotones and could not have ...

Scenic Cruises has advertised itself as Ultra luxury cruises with butler services to all guests. I have traveled with other cruise companies many times, so I was excited to try out Scenic River Cruises. Unfortunately my experience was nothing luxurious. First at all, butler service is non-existing to lower deck floor suites. The so called butler only came and greeted us on the first day. ...

Cruise Termed 7 days into the 14 day trip

10+ Cruises • Age 50s

None of the experience with the ship, shore excursions or food can make up for having the 14 day cruise planned from Budapest to Amsterdam terminated after 7 days and then being left in an unplanned city with no assistance The Danube had been rising over the first few days and then at dinner on day 5 we were told the cruise would end 36 hours later in Passau, we were all to vacate the ship by 8 am ...

Impossible to fault. Staff so helpful and unfailingly polite. Excellent varied programme, both on board and excursions well planned and led. Dining throughout cruise was of such a high standard and offered so much variety. Staff always prepared to go that extra mile. Full marks to cruise director as quality comes from the top and the highest of standards were maintained throughout. Excursion ...
