This was an excellent cruise with superb accommodation, food and helpful and attentive crew. Our Panoramic suite was well fitted out. We could find no fault. Our butler provided extremely good service, nothing was too much trouble. Our fridge was kept well stocked but was little used as drinks were available at all times in the bar. The house manager, George(not the correct spelling), was excellent and most helpful. Every Scenic cruise is totally inclusive. Scenic provide a good choice of excursions at the various stops all well organised and enjoyable. There is very little in the way of entertainment you get on ocean going liners but that suits us.
Due to low water levels Jasper could not complete the trip but the brilliant Sylvia, the cruise director, organised a smooth transfer of all guests via coach to the Jade further along the river and our trip continued and we missed nothing. This was most impressive.
Well done Scenic! We have already booked our next trip with this company.
One fault occurred before we set off when the transport provided to take us to the airport failed to turn up at 2am. After a long call to the providers more was promised but did not arrive. At 3.30am we had just left in our car when a taxi arrived. Not a good start and we have informed Scenic of the problem.
Very spacious and well fitted out, including a bathroom with bath, walk in shower. There was a separate toilet with washbasin. The huge bed was very comfortable and there was a pillow menu to suit each guest.
In the lounge area we had a sofa and two chairs plus coffee table which was used when breakfast was delivered to our suite. The balcony could perhaps have been larger but that would have made the suite a little smaller. Views from our two floor to ceiling windows were brilliant enabling us to see both sides of the river. There was some vibration from the engines but the views were worth it.
