Cruise was supposed to be a river cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam, however, low water levels resulted in being bussed 800 km of the 1400 km trip. Scenic was not, of course, responsible for the low water, however, they almost certainly knew well before the Oct. 16/18 start date that they would likely have to bus passengers for more than 1/2 of the trip. They therefore should have cancelled the trip as they knew they would be unable to provide the product promised, or even a reasonable facsimile of it. This was a very expensive bus tour. We were put up at a hotel in Budapest for 2 days before being bussed over 300 km to board our ship. We were scheduled to be on the Crystal but instead boarded the Pearl (sister ship) but for only 2 days then bussed over 300 +km to board the Opal which we were on for 6 (or maybe 7) days then bussed for about 200 km to board the Amber which we were on for 3 days. Breakfast & lunch were, of course, buffet and were good. Dinners were, however, inconsistent. Beef not cooked correctly, entrees not hot. Service was good ie. prompt. Not the over the top friendly we're used to on ocean cruises. Could be because the crew was eastern European & it's not their culture. Very little on board entertainment but none really expected. Nice comfortable lounge. Read Less

Based on our Travel Coordinator's advice we selected the Scenic Luxury Cruises for our first cruise. The entire crew was superb. They were very attentive to our requests. As an example, while on shore I asked our Cruise Director, Cathy, if she could point me to a pharmacy to purchase some throat lozenges. She said she would take care of it and when the group got together a little later, Cathy had purchased them and did not make a big deal out of it. River cruising will always be impacted by the amount of water in the river. The Rhine River was sufficiently low that we had to disembark the Ruby and take a more shallow day cruise through the Rhine River gorges. While the guests were on the day cruiser, the crew disembarked our luggage and drove to the other end of the gorges where the Crystal was waiting when we arrived. Scenic and their crews did an excellent job of keeping the passengers informed and then doing the ship switch professionally. By the way, the unplanned day cruise ship was filled with tourists and locals and ended up being a pleasant experience. The on shore tours and events were excellent. In addition to the crew, we enjoyed meeting fellow passengers and sharing stories. In summary, Scenic was a great experience. Read Less

Our cruise director was fantastic. She did her very best to resolve problems and kept a very positive attitude throughout the entire trip. We did not really appreciate changing ships after four days, without being told at the beginning not to unpack all our clothes. Communication would have been appreciated. Loved the electric bikes. Disappointed one tour was cancelled. Loved the opera and piano concert at the palace.... and we are not really opera fans! The performers was fantastic. The setting was dreamlike! Marco, the piano player on the scenic was wonderful. A real entertainer. We really enjoyed his performances. Food was ok. The steak and lobster dinner was a disaster. Most dinner choices were tasty. Portobellos was very good -- but you had only one night. Hated flying Air France ( 9 hours in premium business class with a small bottle of water given at the beginning and a 3 ounce glass distributed in hour 8. Awful service). Loved flying KLM. Our cabin on the Ruby was well laid out. The cabin on the Crystal not so functional. We believe Scenic did the best they could given low water levels Read Less
