My husband and I chose this cruise because of Hilton, the location of Bordeaux, of course wine and the activities/excursions offered which sounded very active. We had the owners suite which was amazing with the windows opening entirely in both the bedroom and the balcony. The walk in closet was great as was the tub which is a must for me. Enjoyed our sitting room and had guests almost nightly visit us. The food was okay with moments of very good and others that were just average but I guess in this setting you try to appeal to all. I tend to prefer a little more spice and temperature to my food which isn't always appealing to everyone. The excursions were great. We especially loved the bikes which we used every day and signed up for all but 1 of the excursions offered where biking was concerned. Wine?! Enjoyed the excursion that involved wine. My husband and I have been to Bordeaux many times by land because of the wine but generally spent the majority of the time outside of the city. It was interesting to explore the city to some degree. I agreed to the cruise so long as there was a gym. There was a gym but very limited with no weights and only 3 pieces of cardio equipment. Fortunately for me, few of the other passengers were interested in this so I did not have to wait. I also took advantage of the top of the ship and ran, did lunges etc around the ship. Overall, I would recommend this ship and cruise. Read Less

We like Scenic. Having done all the Scenic river tours in France, we wanted to visit Europe again and the country in which two famous seafarers were born - Vasco da Gama and Ferdinand Magellan. This is the first year this cruise was available, and most of it was excellent. However, what was terrible, was truly terrible. POSITIVES: We were fortunate to have included on our tour a visit to the Cathedral containing the tomb of the Vasco Gama, so we achieved that. Our business class flights from Perth via Singapore to Frankfurt on Singapore Airlines were excellent, but .. NEGATIVES: 1. the 2.5 hour flight to Lufthansa from Frankfurt to Lisbon was a nightmare. Definitely choose another airline or route for that leg! The 3 nights in Lisbon were OK at the Sheraton, very nice staff and room, but they had never heard of porridge or Vegemite .. so some education of the chefs to give Australians (38 of us, so worth bothering about) a choice of recognisable food would have improved our stay. 2. An evening dinner at "Tagine" restaurant in Lisbon near water on Saturday 23rd July was terrible. After half an hour on a bus It took an hour for half a cup of lukewarm tomato soup to arrive (by this time I had consumed the 2 small pieces of bread allocated to the four people around me), then there were some reasonable vegetables wrapped up in a piece of fish, then an hour later the dessert (a bright pink concoction which barely covered the base of the same size plate the soup had arrived in, with a strawberry on the top). There was plenty of red and white wine, served copiously. 3. More variety in on-board entertainment essential (not the same guy every night!) FINALLY We liked Portugal, found most of the tours excellent (except the afternoon ones when it was 43 degrees, which we declined) the ship, most Scenic Staff. However third parties (hotels, restaurants) need more careful selection. Onboard the "Scenic Azure" the food and staff was excellent. We needed a rest and once on board were happy to stay put.
