2-5 Cruises • Age 70s

We had always wanted to do sail the Douro and have enjoyed River cruises in the past. They were great trips and this was the best of them all. It was our first cruise with Scenic and the crew, every one of them, were the most professional, happy, charming and thoughtful people. They are all Portuguese and they do their country proud. We visited some distant villages learning about how life is ...

The crew on Scenic Azure were literally fantastic. This was billed as a five star cruise and I must say it was truly six star cruising. We are experienced and regular cruisers on both ocean and river, and we have never been treated so well on any cruise or by and cruise company. The answer was yes - before the question asked. The Douro has the most lovely scenery and the quality of the ...

We have been on several river cruises in the past and chose Scenic Azure because we had not cruised with them before and our travel agent highly recommended Scenic, and they exceeded our high expectations! This cruise was a week long on the Douro River out of Porto at the end of August 2021. Our embarkation went very smoothly with a rapid Covid19 test before boarding (all vax'd crew & pax) and ...

We chose this cruise because of the luxurious Scenic cruise spaceship and the wonderful Douro scenery. The Portuguese staff on board were wonderful, their service, knowledge, friendliness and professionalism were the best we have ever had on a Scenic tour! We had a Balcony Suite which was very comfortable and so clean and well appointed it looked brand new! We had a superb Cruise Director ...

We selected Scenic because of their outstanding service reputation. Porto arrival was very coordinated. We were welcomed immedialely on board and offered food and wine. The ship is new from 2017 cristening and is extremely clean. The personnel are all local and proud to show their region. Passing locks with more than 100 feet levels was exciting. We selected the included tours according to our ...

We had traveled with Scenic once before. It was a delightful and memorable experience. We were entertained, wined and dined to our hearts' delight. What more could anybody ask for? The crew was capable, informed and personable. The food was exquisite and varied and the wines paired with the food very well. The breads, desserts and pastries were baked on the ship so were as fresh as possible and ...

We were a little concerned we might find a river cruise a little 'small' compared to ocean cruising but we should not have been concerned. It was a simply amazing experience - first class scenery, experiences, staff, food and company. The excursions were wonderful - the Golden City of Salamanca, a wonderful concert in a church in Porto, the most amazing scenery. There was the chance to do more ...

The scenery everyday is awesome. Going through the locks was very interesting. Butlers and bartenders were friendly knowledgeable and attentive. Food was delicious and varied. I am allergic to shellfish and felt they could have done a better job of ensuring that there was options when shellfish was on the menu. Portobellos the Portuguese restaurant was excellent with magnificent service. The ...

First Time Cruiser • Age 40s

My mother wanted to do another river cruise (our first was the Rhone in France) and I selected the Douro based on my friends' many visits to Portugal. It was lovely. Although my mother has limited mobility, the staff went out of their way to make sure my mother and I really enjoyed the trip. The entertainment and activities were great, the cabin was a generous size, especially the balcony. We ...

We are Scenic tragics, and love the levels of extras that come with the luxuries. Having completed all the French river cruises, it was time to branch out to Portugal. We booked the big cabin down the back, and never regretted it. Flew in via Barcelona, where we stayed a night to recuperate from the 24hrs of flights from Sydney, and then flew direct to Porto and Azure. Embarkation on a rainy day ...
