Exceeded Expectations

Sail Date: July 2014
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
Embarkation: Budapest

This was a first river cruise having previously sailed on several large ship cruise lines.  It was a very different experience and one that I found quite pleasant.  Here are some of the differences and you can determine if this venue meets your needs:

-only 190 passengers; older demographic but most were physically fit since walking tours are part of the daily regiment

-many repeat passengers

-intimate enough to get to know most of the service crew during the week

-crew (mostly Bulgarian) were outgoing and genuinely pleasant;

-no shopping spiels- no sales pitches about anything

-cabins, while small, were well laid out with high end furnishings

-meals were excellent; good choices and nicely presented; one seating at dinner and never felt rushed

-tours with local guides were informative and reasonably paced

-docked near central part of city at most ports which allowed easy access on and off the More ship; no tenders- no waiting

-entertainment in the evening ranged from a folk dance group to opera arias- not showboat caliber but culturally more interesting

-premium drink package was worth it for our group; not only do you have unlimited top shelf pours for drinks but there is a separate premium wine list that you an choose from that is far better than the house wine; we thought the better wine may the package far better

-tour of the wheelhouse should not be missed- must schedule an appointment

-no fitness facilities but you can do a lot of walking off the ship Less
