Scenic Does It All

Scenic cruises seem to be in the higher end category as they are all inclusive. Scenic Amber, being a newer ship, is in excellent shape. Service by everyone is quick, effecient and very welcoming. Staff really look ...

Wonderful Time on the Danube

Have wanted to do a river cruise for some time. Researched all the lines then chose Scenic because 1) it was all-inclusive, 2) It was supposed to be a slightly younger crowd than other lines and 3) I hoped that ...
