We have just finished a cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam on the Scenic Jewel and it was the most amazing holiday, we could not have asked for anything to be better. I had thought it was going to be good, but it was much better than I imagined. We have been on a lot of ocean cruises and the staff on Scenic were the best we have ever come across. The cabin (deluxe balcony) was absolutly beautiful with lots of room and a fantastic bathroom with a glass shower screen (this is a big deel as most ocean cruises have plastic shower curtains) The food was very good to excellent and the champagne was good quality (also important to me). We had docking only once on the entire cruise, saw Viking ships docked up to four ships at a time quite a lot. Our cruise director was excellent and everything ran very smoothly. I must add that the dinner at the castle was the only low point in the entire trip, it was just too crowded and noisy for us.
I hope this puts your mind at ease somewhat and as we are still in Europe and won't be back in Australia until until the start of October, I will gladly answer any questions then.
