Linda just returned from a Danube River cruise from Budapest to Nuremberg on the Scenic Jade. Linda shares her thoughts below:
“The Scenic Jade is a lovely ship with courteous and professional staff who will go out of their way to tend to your wishes and needs. The stylish balcony staterooms are equipped with the clever “Scenic Sun Lounge”, a balcony for all seasons.
All the dining venues served excellent food including local delicacies, plus vegetarian options and a healthy- choice menu were available daily.
I was fortunate to get an invitation to the Table La Rive culinary experience – an evening of chef’s tasting courses with beautiful wine pairings. It was an incredible feast for the taste buds! (Click here to see the menu)
The tours were the highlights of each day. Many of the tours visited beautiful Unesco Heritage Sites and were led by very knowledgeable and personable local guides. I had the pleasure of attending a classical concert in Vienna and a beautiful piano/organ recital in Budapest – both were performed by incredibly talented local musicians.
The Scenic device is a great tool to explore the towns on your own without getting lost. The device contains GPS and pre-programmed walking tours. It also gives you information about the sites you pass on your way through town or even from your lounge chair on the ship when you sail along the river.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience with Scenic Tours and highly recommend it to clients who are looking for a truly all-inclusive luxury river cruise and a hassle-free vacation.”
