Q&A with Scenic Guests


Jan and Peter Gabler recently travelled between Amsterdam and Budapest, and share their unforgettable experience.

How would you describe your Scenic Space-Ship experience?

Our first impression of the Scenic service was WOW! To say we were impressed is an understatement. On arrival, we were welcomed by, what seemed like, the entire crew, dressed in their best and offering to supply whatever we required.

After relaxing in the lounge on Scenic Crystal, we were escorted by our butler to our Balcony Suite where we were delighted by the sufficient space in both the living and bathroom areas. Previous cruising has found the latter can be a little challenging.

How would you describe your on board dining experiences?

We were travelling with three other couples and met up with another couple, so as a group of 10 we managed to make the most of every moment; fabulous evenings at the Table La Rive and Portobellos, where the food, wines and service was second to none.

In fact, every meal on board was great fun, from breakfast with a glass of Moët to the midday buffet and the laughter-filled evening meals, it was first class.

Dine at Portobellos at least once during your cruise


How was your visit to Schloss Burg Castle in Germany?

On occasions where we were taken to special venues for entertainment, the standard was just as excellent.

Schloss Burg Castle* was so impressive to walk around in the late afternoon light, followed by an evening of great food, wine and excellent entertainment, with minstrel singers and musicians mingling with plenty of laughter.

*Venue may vary, other location Marksburg Castle.

Can you describe your experience on our shop with a chef Scenic Freechoice tour and Palais Liechtenstein Scenic Enrich private concert in Vienna?

When we are asked by friends to tell of our favourite part of the trip the answer is impossible.

How can we compare a delightful morning in Vienna strolling through the markets with our ship’s chef explaining the various stalls and selecting tastings for us as we moved through; or the privilege of spending the evening, as a private group, in the magnificent Palais Liechtenstein and being captivated by the beautiful music of talented musicians who played for a spectacular ballet 'pas de deux'.

What did you think of the 'Best of the Sound of Music and Salzburg Show' Scenic Enrich event?

Each and every Scenic Enrich activity that was offered was thoroughly enjoyable and allowed us to feel the atmosphere and culture of the area we were in.

The incredible trip up to the mountains of Salzburg to be entertained by a talented group of youngsters and entertainers, how lucky were we?
