We took the Grand European Tour and stayed in the Explorer Suite (a special occasion at great expense). This is a senior cruise, with the majority of guests over 65. Disabuse yourself of the idea that a river cruise is charming small ... Read more

I have taken many oceanic cruises, but this river cruise is quite different. There are many positives as well as negatives. On the positive side, there is no sea-sickness, no "at sea days", no need to dress up or make-up, ... Read more

The ship was quiet and clean. The food was very good, but breakfast was mostly the same selection of hot and cold foods and THE SAME pastries EVERY DAY, which got very boring. We missed not having access to self serve laundry features, ... Read more
