We were unsure what to expect, not having done a river cruise before but we were delighted with every aspect of our holiday. Our cabin was on the small side – we had opted not to pay considerably more for one with a balcony. However, we spent so little time in it this did not matter at all. Very comfortable bed, plenty of storage space and all mod cons. Good internet access via large tv console. Free mini bar replenished every day. Excellent shower, daily clean towels, etc.

The food was universally superb – five star standard every meal with superlative and friendly service from a first rate crew. Portions were a sensible size. The seafood buffet one night was simply astounding in terms of variety and quality.

All the excursions were very good, too, and with knowledgeable and friendly guides. We visited some fascinating places and always had enough time to wander on our own if we wanted to. The excursions were graded so that those who did not want to walk so far were also catered for – a welcome touch for my wife.

And the best thing of all was that everything was included, We only spent money on souvenirs and made full use of free drinks – nothing like a glass of champagne on deck at 11.30 am!

Literally and honestly the only thing we and our friends could find fault with was the coffee served at breakfast: that said, there was a coffee machine in the lounge which served superb coffee at any time.

Without a doubt we will travel with Scenic again (southern France) – but we will have to save up first. That said, when one realises that everything is genuinely all-inclusive they are really fairly reasonable value.

Certainly the best holiday we have ever had.

    No need to be nervous - although, truth be told, we were glad that we went with friends, which means there is no initial awkwardness. There was so much to see and do that we were never bored! It sounds a long time but it went very fast.

    Take the plunge - you won't regret it, I can assure you!

    now that does sound like a good cruise - though a 15-day commitment would make me a bit nervous! Will have to brave-up methinks ...
