We had done a Gate 1 trip a couple of times before, and it was always wonderful. They are SO far above the bar as compared to a regular cruise. There were only 110 people on the boat, and we met many wonderful people and always enjoyed finding new friends. What is nice about Gate 1 is the smaller amount of people. By the end, you really felt like you knew just about everyone, at least in ...

The staff was friendly and very accommodating. Our tour director was enthusiastic and friendly. Our room was sparkling clean each day. Internet was free and available mostly with urban areas. There were choices for dinner and lunch. Dinner was served at 7:00 by competent and friendly waiters. Breakfast was buffet style, which was crowded and a bit chaotic. You can get off of the ship and go on a ...

My wife and I just returned from an excellent trip from Gate 1, including a week on the Danube on the Monarch Governess, with a pre-cruise in Budapest and a post-cruise in Prague. As usual, Gate 1 delivered! This was out third trip with Gate 1. We booked out airfare through them, so out airport transfers were included. All flights and transfers went off without a hitch. Our hotel was ready ...

It was a lovely experience. Small ship. We were in room which was next to the suites with the view, but without the price (and space). The cruise director was Bartel, hard working director. Food was absolutely terrific. Better than my expectations. Exuberant Activity Host Nad (sorry I never made to the early exercise) . Daily Program with departures, activities, entertainment , ...

We found the Seine River Cruise to be a great value. Great Cruise Director, Athletic Director. Terrific food. Our ship was the Monarch Countess. I like to get to the location a day or two early, so I booked the no-frills, inexpensive Porte De Versailles Hotel, close to the ship’s dock. Here is my Trip Advisor review. (Hyperlink not working, look for @susans201) Weather was terrific, ...

A wonderful 7 days on the Rhine. This was our first river cruise with Gate 1 but not our first trip with them. The ship is lovely and the crew great, food was delicious with complimentary wine and beer with dinner. Included tours were offered at every port with a few that cost extra. Coffee, tea and cookies are available all day. Two lounges, one big, one smaller. Entertainment was okay. A few ...

This was supposed to be the Trip of a Lifetime but it turned sour pretty quickly because of a broken heater in the Monarch Countess Cabin #327. I got sick the first night because it shut off and started blowing cold air in the cabin. I subsequently caught a cold and was not at my best for the remainder of the 8 day cruise. The ship was nice, the dining service was EXCELLENT, the cruise director ...

This was our first river cruise, although we had been on a number of ocean cruises. We chose Gate1 because of the value and great reviews for their land tours, but there was little or nothing to be found about their river cruises. We hit a great sale and could not resist. We booked directly with Gate1, and it was super easy. We were not disappointed in the least, and pleasantly surprised overall. ...

We arrived in Amsterdam 3 days pre-cruise and stayed in an AirBNB in Utretch. Between train and bus service we arrived at our destination in about an hour. We were able to spend a full day in Amsterdam and another day in Utretch. We arrived at the Monarch Countess 2 hours before official boarding time, but were told we could leave our luggage if we wanted to walk around outside for a bit, ...
