Great Trip for Two First Time River Cruisers.

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Spirit of the Rhine

DaveMR
10+ Cruises • Age 80s

Spirit of the Rhine is nice small ship with only 180 or so passengers, mostly like minded and good company. We were nervous about the entertainment (after 65 ocean cruises) and I don't know if we were just lucky, but the local entertainers brought aboard were really excellent and the onboard Saga entertainers / cruise staff got other activities just about right. Maybe do some more quizzes though? ...

Spirit of the Rhine a new beautifully COMPACT ship. Beds twins can be put together but with single duvets. Staff exceptional. All inclusive a bonus. Lots of wine some good. We have today come back from Highlights of the Mosel which we found relaxing. We climbed up to each castle on the hilltops which I loved. The journey on Eurostar like waiting at an airport. The included chauffeur got us there 2 ...

No problems with the boat at all which was excellent. Excursions could have been organized better

i was slightly worried having read some of the reviews on Cruise Critic but actually we were very pleasanatly surprised by how good it was. We arranged to go to the airport a day early to avoid the ridiculously early pick ups some people had. we paid for the hotel and transfer to the terminal but felt that was much better than being collected at 0500. the transport to and fro was good, clean ...

Now I Know Why Saga Doesn't Market in the United States

We had a close friend living in Oxford that was interested in going on a river cruise with us. After much research, I discovered the Saga line, with one of its newest river boats, Spirit of the Rhine. One appealing aspect was the fact that Saga offered VIP transportation so that we could get door to door service. I ignored the negative reviews. If you live in the US, the website doesn't help ...

Worst ever cruise

It went wrong from the start. Taxi driver had us down for Manchester T1 instead of T2 . Luckily i put him straight. When we arrived in Amsterdam and after a long wait because of the luggage belt not working, we were ushered into a holding aread and told to wait until other flghts arrived. That took all of 2 hours. Eventuall we were show to a coach and told we were to being transported to a ...

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Spirit of the Danube

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Unlike the previous reviewer I found the cruise on The Spirit of the Danube to be five star. A lovely new ship with excellent service from the crew. They all worked extremely hard to give all passengers a great holiday. Tea and coffee was available 24 hours a day in the lounge. In the restaurants if anything was needed there was a member of crew to help. If the previous reviewer wasn't happy with ...

Review for a Africa Cruise on Spirit of the Rhine

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Where to begin? The places we went to and the flowers and gardens were excellent, including our external speakers. The ship was good, rooms very small, but very badly let down by the staff both in the Saga office pre departure, and then on the ship itself. Total disorganisation from the staff running the cruise program, itinerary changed with no explanation as to why, lots of hanging around ...

Not worth the money with poor quality and amateurish service

Review for a Europe - River Cruise Cruise on Spirit of the Danube

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

This was our first experience of travelling with Saga and it will probably be the last. The transport to the airport was perfect as was the transfer in Amsterdam. Arriving on the boat at 5 pm having left home 13 hours before, we were told, very abruptly, that afternoon tea had finished at 4.30 pm! This was despite a whole coachload arriving at the same time. Not a good start. It was ...

Review for a Canary Islands Cruise on Spirit of the Rhine

10+ Cruises • Age 80s

Our 1st Saga Cruise or Saga Holiday Booking process by phone simple and efficient. However from then on trying to communicate with Saga was difficult and a little frustrating. Final details arrived far too close to sailing date and presentation could be improved. Perhaps consequences of Covid ? So called Chauffeur pick up not quite what we expected. Car turned up just outside the ...
