Launched in 2014 the Scenic Jade space-ship is 443 feet long and carries 169 guests and 51 crew members. Scenic Jade is truly all-inclusive, with all meals, all drinks, onshore excursions, WiFi and butler service in all cabins categories included in the price.
Although we got to see places that two decades ago would not be easily accessible we found that, apart from Ruse and Belgrade, we needed to be coached for some time to our selected location. The time ranged from an hour and a half to almost four hours. Indeed the trip to the Black Sea ( Black Sea Explorer) took 3.5 to 4 hours there and the same back. It made the day very trying. The ship and staff were wonderful as usual -
the on board piano player was excellent.
The Sundowner was a hurried waste of time - off the boat, over the bridge, on to a barge, down with one beer, group photo, off the barge back on the coach back to the boat. One hour tops.
Would not recommend this particular cruise to others.
