An der Donau
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
The cruise itself went like clockwork, with people meeting us where we were to be met, getting us to the ship with no fuss or bother, and taking care of us throughout the eight days we were with them in a pleasant, low-key fashion. More The ship was only a few years old, the cabins comfortable and well-designed, and the food keyed to the country we happened to be cruising through along the way. The other nice thing about the food was that it wasn't the overwhelming excess one associates with cruising. Rather it was nicely portioned for lunch and dinner and the few buffets we had were - essentially breakfast - were just enough. As for the itinerary, for us the Danube was an ideal venue, since it meanders through numerous countries and cultures, most of whose capitals are along the river, and the tours were nicely timed to see all of them, a good mix of driving and walking, with time to wander about after the 'formal' part was finished.. We stopped at Linz to bus to Salzburg, then Melk, Durnstein, Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest Our favorite places were Bratislava and Budapest, plus the portion of the cruise during the day through the Wachau Valley.

Cabin review: A207 Deluxe Stateroom with French Balcony
We were in a cabin amidships (207, as I recall). Compact, but very nicely designed so that everything we brought along fit and there was enough space, including nooks and crannies, for our purposes. The views were very nice, but pretty much the same for all of the two upper deck rooms. Overall, a nice quiet space that functionally worked well. When underway there was very little noise and even less motion, so it was similar to being in a hotel room, other than the size.Read All Deluxe Stateroom with French Balcony (A) Reviews >>
