Beautiful Trip Down the Danube
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
Our tour director was Mark and he was the Dutch epitome of Alistair in As Life Goes On, a PBS TV show. He seemed to be able to solve any problem. One elderly couple had an accident in Prague and the lady had to be hospitalized for a day or two. Mark arranged transportation, etc., for them to resume the trip. They could not say enough good things about Mark. Embarking and disembarking were effortless and went off without a hitch.
The excursions were good. There was a daily one included at each stop and the guides, especially our More guides in Bratislava and Budapest, were excellent. The exception being our guide in Vienna, who was just average. The two extra excursions we paid for were night ones - concert in Vienna and the night tour of the lights of Budapest. Both were well worth going on.
The food was good - not spectacular. We found that the "healthy choice" of entrée at dinner made an excellent side dish for us (4) to share. No one batted an eye when we would ask for the extra entrée.
Our cabin was on the bottom of the ship - without a full wall of windows. Our windows were neck level so we could see out a bit. The cabin was adequate. Could have used a bit more lighting as finding things in the cabinets was by touch only. Our cleaning girl was very sweet and a hard worker. Although they asked not to have your towels changed every day she would change them twice a day if we used them, Nice. the robe and toiletries were also a nice touch. Less

The right pace, delicious food...
Met All of My Expectations
A Thoroughly Enjoyable, Relaxi...
