"From our amazing suite to our friendly and knowledgeable personal butler, travelling with Scenic is unlike anything we have ever experienced on the waters of Europe. "

Mr Andrew McKinnock

“A river cruise is certainly one of the best ways to see some of Europe’s most interesting historical sites on the Rhine and the Danube, and we found all of the Scenic shore excursions to be enjoyable and informative. Budapest was an unexpected highlight of our trip, and we loved cruising into the very heart of the city. ”

Mr and Mrs Pallant
