We have been on 3 previous Scenic River Cruises which we enjoyed but this was the best yet. Arrangements were good, the crew were excellent and the weather was great. Using a crew who were all Portugese proved to be an inspired decision.They were all most polite and extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them. The Azure sensibly had a smoking area at the rear of the sun deck, unlike the other boats we have sailed on, Our cabin was spotless and well maintained during the voyage. Food was varied and good quality. Unfortunately, being elderly, we could not tackle all the shore trips but enjoyed the ones that we could manage. The on-board musician was talented and the activities were interesting though, being elderly, we couldn't manage all. Our tour manager was very knowledgeable but inexperienced and wasted too much time giving unnecessary detail at great length. Overall not quite 5-star but 4 1/2 say!

Best river cruise yet
