New ship with large cabins. Lots of food: Special menus for each day's breakfast, lunch and dinner. Also, warm cookies mid-morning, tea in the afternoon and happy hour before dinner with a variety of tasty food each evening. If you wanted, there was wine and beer at lunch and/or dinner and a full bar during happy hour which was all included.
The service everywhere on the ship was tremendous from the cabin steward, the dining waiters, the tour directors, the administrative staff and the cruise director. Also the lecturer, Rae, was very informative about the ports of call and she gave lectures each day before our arrival at the next port.
Getting on and off the ship was effortless with plenty of help. Bus transportation at the end was provided to the airports and/or hotels.
The ports were very interesting and the tours very well planned with comfortable buses, nice drivers and knowledgeable tour guides.
This was our first experience on a River Cruise as we previously have done many ocean cruises. We found this cruise to be very good and have booked another cruise with a different itinerary on this same ship.
