PRESENTING A SMALL SAMPLE OF THE WORLD’S MOST COMPREHENSIVE RIVERBOAT Q&A
- I AM CRUISING SCENIC IN OCTOBER. WHY IS IT RANKED SO LOW ON RBR? SHOULD WE BE WORRIED ABOUT THE WAY THEY MIGHT HANDLE OUR UPCOMING DANUBE CRUISE?Q – We are scheduled to join friends on our first river cruise with Scenic. We are scheduled to sail out of Passau and “float” down to Budapest. We found that all of the river cruise lines smelled like cinnamon until we came to your site.

- WILL BUDAPEST BE OK? WE HEAR PROBLEMS ARE LIMITED TO THE RHINE8.19.22 – Q – We are desperately trying to get information about our Danube Cruise on Scenic that begins in Budapest in two weeks. Nothing from Scenic yet and the news reports we have been reading seem to specify the Rhine. Can you help us understand the situation in Budapest? Great site!!!

So here we are, scheduled to leave on October 13th on Viking with no recourse until they, on their own, decide to cancel our cruise – which of course they won’t, given how much money is at stake. So we are, according to our agent, facing some likely changing of boats or, worse, ending up on a bus tour from hell. We are going with another couple and they are having tee…
