This was my first river cruise. I had never been to Europe. I had to go by myself as my friends could not afford the cost. I felt I got my money's worth and more. From the minute we landed in Germany I had no trouble locating the cruise ... Read more

This was my second river cruise. The worst thing about this cruise had nothing to do with the ship, but it was the unusually hot weather in Budapest; however, by the time we got to Passau the weather was beautiful. At one point on our ... Read more
