This was our first river cruise and first time traveling post-COVID. Scenic exceeded our expectations. Service was excellent. Staff could not have been more attentive. Having several tour choices in each port was a treat. Salzburg luncheon and show was held in an eye opening location, just like the movie. Concert at Palais LIchtenstein was the highlight of the cruise. All meals were varied ...

We choose this cruise to celebrate my wife's 80th birthday We were on the 3rd deck Veranda suite at rear and could not sleep for motor noise. It was very unfortunate that a flu type bug went through the boat day two, people were coughing everywhere we were both really affected and missed a couple of days excursions, no assistance from staff or medication available. The regimented dining ...

Cabin noise

We were situated in a cabin towards the back of the ship subject to noise and vibration whilst sailing during the night. Scenic staff were reluctant to address the issue with any urgency (the passenger in the cabin opposite spent 3 nights sleeping in the lounge before being moved, we were moved after 4 nights - why have to wait?). Same story at reception "There are no free cabins", which was ...

Chose this cruise because we are fiscally in good condition and knew at times there maybe some long days if you were to take in all or most of the activities on board and off. From time we arrived in Amsterdam to flying home from Prague we always were in excellent hands with tour guides and crew. Very knowledgable and friendly. Highlight, bike ride thro Austria. This is truly a five star ...

We chose this cruise to celebrate our 30th Anniversary and we had a really good time last year on the Seine River cruise. This trip was a completely different experience for us, we were disappointed with some of the elements of this trip. The first sign that this cruise was going to be interesting (cursed) was the ship was changed 2 days before our departure date. Hmm, what was wrong with the ...

Scenic was recommended by my sister-in-law who is a travel journalist. We had a great meeting with Scenic personnel at the Ottawa Travel Show. We chose to include three extra days at either end to visit Amsterdam and Budapest in a little more depth than the cruise would allow, The cruise itself was beyond my expectations, every possible scenario was planned and executed perfectly, so that ...

A scenic cruise is a real five star experience. It’s quite an investment, but you do get a quality experience. The crew are sensational, they were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The food was always fresh, beautifully presented and a wonderful variety at all meal times. I would strongly recommend it. The facilities & food are brilliant. Most of the tours were enjoyable and gave ...

We had to change ships on the 10th day of a 14 day cruise. Scenic was repositioning the Jewel and the Pearl due to high water problems on a prior cruise. Our comments are based on our experience on the Jewel in the first 10 days. Our experiences on the Pearl were NOT as good. The crew and staff on the Jewel were very friendly, communicative, accomodating and fun to be with. They handled a ...

Suggested by my travel agent. I also liked the fact once you paid your final payment that it covered everything! Excursions, alcoholic beverages and gratuities! The staff of the Jewel were absolutely phenomenal. Food was awesome as there were so many choices from fine dining to a la carte to buffet. Ship was nice and clean. Nightly local entertainment in the Lounge was the perfect finale to ...

Lovely ship, clean and comfortable. All Staff helpful, attentive, polite. Extremely smart. Butlers charming, could not do enough for us, Their grey suits exceptional. Very comprehensive tours with excellent guides. However one criticism is that their walking pace was a little to fast for me age group they were leading. The app on the smart phone had several technical difficulties. The two ...
