We sailed on the Impression, but our Journey started several days earlier with an extension in Salzburg. Tamas was our guide on the ship, and was also our guide in Salzburg. I cannot say enough about how incredible he was. Everything was taken care of for us, and he was always available to answer questions. Our cabin was wonderful for the most part....the last night on board a shorter boat docked next to our boat, and as we had the last cabin, the other boat's exhaust pumped into our cabin. That was disconcerting and a bit concerning, but was the only negative thing I can say. The food was wonderful, and I loved that we had so many locally sourced foods. The entertainment was very enjoyable, the ship piano player was fantastic. The duo that got on the boat in Vienna and rode with us for a little while was great! All those that served on the ship were always relaxed and smiling, and served with great skill. The excursions were as advertised, and very enjoyable. The guides were knowledgeable and for the most part, very good at keeping those on the tour interested. The one poor guide was a lady in Grein who told us the same things over and over again interspersed with 'I don't know what else to tell you." I am not sure if she is inexperienced, or if she was uninterested. Overall, this was one of the best vacations of our lives, and a great way to celebrate our 30th anniversary! Read Less

This was our first ever cruise, to celebrate our 50th birthday this year, as my wife was always afraid of motion sickness. During our 12 day Danube cruise she was never sick and never felt any discomfort. In fact I can say that unless you have the curtains open you do not even realize whether the ship is moving or not. Our adventure started in Linz. It was a pleasant experience from the word go. We arrived early, at around 13 00hrs. One of the entertainment organizers, Lilla, met us to help us with our luggage. Even though we insisted that we were OK, she insisted to help us. Our luggage was kept on board until it was time to check in. This whole ship and especially our cabin were kept tidy and spotlessly clean throughout the cruise. An upper deck cabin is recommended as it gives you the option to open the huge sliding window while in the cabin, both for fresh air as well as to take some memorable photos and video. Dining was always a pleasure experience. The quantity was adequate, especially since we were eating three times a day, something we do not usually do at home. French cuisine was promised and French cuisine we got, both in the quality and taste, and in the presentation. The staff in the dining room gave us excellent, personal service; always with a smile. Entertainment and excursions where prepared in detail and professionally carried out. Although we formed part of a small English speaking group, we never felt left out and every announcement or commentary was always promptly translated to us. To be balanced, I would like to mention two things which can be improved. The WiFi service left a bit to be desired and should be improved, both in its connectivity and also in its availability across the ship. During the excursions we would have liked to have some more free time for private exploring and shopping. To conclude, this was a dream holiday. The service was personal and outstanding. We managed to enjoy every minute of our experience. Finally we would like to say a big THANK YOU and a big WELL DONE to all the crew, both those seen as well as those unseen. A special mention and extra thank you goes to Anna, Andrea and Sophie for all the personal attention and pleasant surprises they prepared for us. Read Less
