After 6 cruises with Princess, Oceana and Viking on the ocean, me and my partner we decided this November to try a river cruise and, as we enjoyed our last cruise on Viking Star we decided for Viking again. The experience was a little bit different, but we loved every moment between Budapest and Amsterdam. Viking Lif is a lovely ship, not very big (we were 190 passengers on board), giving ...

This was our first time on AmaWaterways, but our second river cruise. We did the Gems of Southeastern Europe which started in Budapest, Hungary, went through Croatia, Serbia, and Bulgaria, and ended in Bucharest, Romania. The ship was very nice, very well maintained and clean, with plenty of spots in the lounge to sit and relax. Our cabin was just enough room and laid out very well. The food was ...

An Amazing Experience

Review for AmaVerde (APT) to Europe - River Cruise

Having cruised with APT in Russia, Vietnam and Cambodia we were thrilled to be able to cruise in Europe and in perhaps one of the best ships doing so. The AmaVerde was a fantastic experience from the moment we boarded up to the disembarkation. The crew and staff were as professional as they were friendly. There was not one crew member who did not try their best and nothing was too much to request. ...

We wanted to try River Cruising but didn't want to spend the luxury prices so we chose Gate1. We would use them agAin. The food ranged from good to excellent. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The ship was well maintained and very clean. With only about 100 passengers it was a more intimate environment and all the other passengers were nice. The included tours were an ...

Originally purchased this package through Luxury Escapes. Had previously never heard of Gate1, but wanted to do a European river cruise without the 5 star price tag. Booked our transfers from Budapest airport to the ship through Gate1 and from then on for the next two weeks had to think about nothing but enjoying the cruise. Gate 1 had covered all aspects of the holiday, with excellent local ...

We actually chose Gate 1 for our river cruise because of its fantastic pricing. Knowing that we were paying less than half of the cost of the other companies, I was fully prepared for a less than luxurious experience. We were very pleasantly surprised!! We are a professional couple who have done 11 ocean cruises, primarily with Celebrity, but have also cruised with Oceania and Seabourne. We ...

I found very few reviews for Gate 1 Travel and the Monarch Empress traveling the Danube so I thought I would post a quick summary. Marigold252's review in post #2409882 ("Gate 1 17 Day Danube River Cruise with Warsaw, Krakow, Budapest & Prague") on this forum has some fairly detailed additional information. This was our first river cruise and most of our tour experience has been with various ...

River Cruising Not Just For The Retired!

My husband had been wanting to try a river cruise for years, but I was worried it would cater to the retired set. Our group of 11 middle aged travelers was pleasantly surprised at the variety of ages aboard and thoroughly enjoyed our week of luxury. First of all, we loved having choices for our excursions each day from biking to hiking or taking a more relaxed tour by bus and walking. All the tour ...

We picked this cruise from three other possibilities as we liked the itinerary and the option to have free time to do our own thing. The passengers were mainly 60 plus and my husband and I are 51 and 48. The passengers were a pleasant mix of mainly American, Canadian and Australian. From my observation everyone was very friendly and mingled well. Everything went very smoothly from airport ...

The ship and staff were fantastic. They were very helpful and knowledgeable and treated you with respect and curtesy. All of the ports were interesting and the tours were very good. It was so enjoyable to be close to town when we were docked so we could walk into town. Each town offered a unique experience and it was so nice to be able to shop in local stores. The shore excursions offered ...
