The top of my bucket list included Austria, and we had heard that river cruising was the way to go. We were not disappointed. From the moment we were met at the airport to the time we were picked up to leave for home, we were the most ... Read more

This Christmas Market Cruise failed to have Christmas markets. So very disappointing. I had taken that specific cruise because of that very offering. The three levels of walking tours, written in their literature, were not offered. ... Read more

This was our first river cruise, but not our last! Everything from the booking to the trip itself was flawless. The Hlin is a new ship with every amenity imiginable for a river boat. I'm not sure my wife and I will ever sail on a large ... Read more
