Great Ship and Crew, but....

Hi. We picked this cruise in 2019, but vantage kept moving the dates until this year. They just moved the dates and NEVER sent us an email to tell us of the date changes. They only way we found out, was by logging into our account. Verry POOR. The ship and crew were great. However, working with Vantage was very hard. Long hold times( 2 hours) on the phone, plane reservations changed 7 day ...

I reserved this cruise in June 2022. I am a single traveler and do not have many cruise options because of that. I traveled with Vantage 3 times before - all trips were the river cruises and all of them were wonderful. Unfortunately, this trip was not that good. I had a singe balcony cabin. The cabin was overheated. The air conditioner setting was set on max cooling and the fan was set on max ...

We chose this cruise because of the published itinerary but unfortunately many of the planned activities were cancelled because the crew felt tendering in zodiacs to shore would be too dangerous. Two planned days at sea turned into three. The ship is new only going into service in Nov 2022. The layout is beautiful, both cabins and public rooms. The restaurant food and staff were the highlight ...

This was a great last minute deal for us. We enjoyed seeing the culture and the temples of Indonesia as well as the wildlife. We saw some fantastic sights that apparently was available to small ships like the Odessey. Our ship was VERY nice. Our room was well appointed, the food was very tasty and the service staff was excellent. The lectures aboard the ship were very interesting, but ...

Beautiful ship with excellent staff but inferior ports of call

The brochure from the tour operator made this sound like a very nice cruise with some interesting ports of all. Unfortunately, several ports of call were very uninspiring and required extensive bus rides to the actual port of call such as Hue and Phnom Penh. A few other ports were not worth the time to visit with very little to see and do such as Koh Samui, Thailand and Kuantan, Malaysia. The ...

Christmas Markets on the Danube

The ports on this Christmas Markets cruise were the typical stops on any Danube River trip. What set it apart were all the different markets set up in each town/city. Browsing around was so much fun! And seeing some of the markets all lit up at night was special. The riverboat, the River Splendor, was typical of other riverboats we have been on. One huge disappointment, though, was the way ...

After numerous international ocean cruises, my husband and I decided three years ago to sample some river cruising. We have travelled the Rhine, Danube, and this year we chose Vantage for our Douro River cruise. In order to keep this brief, I am going to list why I believe Vantage is the best choice for the Douro: 1. We have had countless cruise directors, and by far, Carmen was the very best ...

My wife and I chose to do a long river cruise for our first river cruise experience, thinking we would want to make one airplane ride to Europe and take in as much as possible. Vantage offered a 23 day river cruise with a 5 day land pre cruise extension in Romania. We did not know what to expect since it was our first river cruise after many ocean cruises and, there were few reviews of ...

Many of the locations were interesting, including Honfleur, and the Giverny,the Normandy Beaches,American Cemetery,Pointe du Hoc, and 2 1/2 days for Paris explorations. One excursion included a visit to a working farm which talked about cheese makingbut did not include a demonstration or show cheese being made or stored--nota wise use of 2 hours. Food service was efficient and lthe menu ...
