Booked late and chose cruise because no Viking cruise available. 1st river cruise, (9 ocean cruises). Food okay and wine and liquor selection was great; all inclusive in price. 80% Aussies, few Canadians and 1 US couple. Best new items for us was the e-bicycles having a electric motor assist which were nice in the small towns. Best part of trip is the Danube river thru Germany. Cabin was extremely small and we had to crawl over each other to around . Our beef was with the hotel manager. We had to wait 4 hours in lobby for our room to be ready. Over the hours, buses were unloading and other guests sent directly to room. We were one of last ones get our room. There were over 20 rooms that were empty on the cruise. Hotel manager was very rude when we inquired a couple of times if our room was ready. There was no attempt to accommodate people who had been waiting an excessive amount of time. We would not recommend a Scenic Cruise!!!!!!

Rude hotel manager, rest of crew very friendly

Cabin Review

Cabin D107
Cabin is very small. Had to crawl onto bed to get around each other. Storage was adequate. Shower and bathroom, small, but functional.
