River Adagio
Ranked #3 of 16 Grand Circle Ships
50% Loved It
  • Pro: Strong emphasis on education and culture, with home-hosted lunches, visits to local charities and local guides.
  • Con: Cabins have fixed twin beds; clientele is on older side.
  • Bottom Line: Offering value and enrichment instead of the most up-to-date amenities, River Adagio is a good choice for older cruisers who want to be immersed in the places they visit.
