2012 European Grand Tour

Sail Date: July 2012
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
Embarkation: Budapest

Had a fantastic time. One of the best cruises we have taken. The smaller, more intimate size was more relaxing, although the excursion were more demanding than we had expected. Will definitely recommend it to friends/relatives. Good value for money spent. Crew excellent, knowledgeable, friendly. Food very good. Ship very comfortable, clean and accommodating.

Asked for no. of ports visited, only went up to 8, we visited 14. Guided tours very good and educational. Suggest that maybe fewer ports would give us more time to explore more interesting cities/towns. Sometimes felt a bit rushed. Our pre-arranged before and after visits to Prague and Amsterdam were excellent with good hotels and guides. Suggest Amsterdam hotel be closer to downtown (believe there is a Hilton in Old Town). Airport transfers well arranged.

Only real criticism is the cruise probably tried to accomplish too much, it would have been nice to spend more time enjoying the river scenery and More castles as we drifted along the rivers/canals. Evening entertainment a bit lacking, but understandable considering the ship's size and lounge space. Let us know what you think of our cruise review. We have sent out about 22 emails (photos and captions) detailing our cruise to friends and relatives, with great response. Any interest in seeing them? Thanks again for a wonderful time.

Got our bearings for Amsterdam on our won.

Van Gogh Museum

Been there 30 years ago. Still a fascinating city to visit.

Saw a lot, learned a lot. Never enough time. The section is useless. Next port Bratislava not listed. Neither are Vienna, Durnstein/Melk, Passau, Regensburg, Nuremberg, Bamberg, Wurzburg, Miltenberg, Koblenz, Cologne, Kinerderdjik - all ports we visited.
