Why no reviews since 2015?

Review for River Navigator to Europe - River Cruise

I was confused because I could find any reviews since 2015. We were on the "MS River Navigator", although this page refers to Vantage River Navigator. I'm assuming and hoping I'm on the right page. River cruise, NOT an ocean liner. CanNOT really compare the two. I believe the capacity is around 150 passengers as opposed to the thousands on ocean ships. Typical small rooms and bathroom, ...

This was our first cruise with Vantage, having cruised three times with Viking. Overall we found Vantage to be comparable to Viking with a few significant differences. First, the obvious, wine, beer, and soft drinks are complimentary at lunch and dinner with Viking, while they are only free at dinner with Vantage. We also felt that Vantage caters to an older demographic than Viking—just our ...

Vantage Cruise from Constantina to Bonn: On the plus side of things, it was all it was billed to be and everything was as promised. Th shore excursions were generally quite good and the tour director did her best ot accommodate everyone's needs and wants. We appreciated that wine and beer were included with dinner (provided you could flag down the over-worked wait staff) and the quality was ...

This was our first river cruise on Vantage. Previous river cruise were on Uniworld River Royale (Rhone and Provence) and Lueftner Amadeus Silver (Belgium & Netherlands). Sailed from May 28 to June 11, 2015. Took this ship because it covered the areas we wanted to see: the Rhine and Mosel. Other cruises included Crystal Harmony to Alaska and the Baltic. The good parts were: great weather, sunny ...

I was so pleased with this trip. Being a Viking supporter I wasn't sure that Vantage could compare but they surely did. The River Navigator was so comfortable and the beds were like sleeping on marshmallows. French chef, great staff, Captain Sigi very friendly and helped his staff if needed. I recommend the Moselle River to anyone wanting to see a beautiful part of Germany and France. They ...

My wife and I have been on eight large cruise ship tours and joined the Carolina Preserve group for our first river boat adventure. We will not go back to the cruise ship scenario. The onboard service, dining experience, activities, cabin comfort, and overall care were top of the line. Port and shore excursions were great. Dining off the boat was paid for by Vantage as well as entrance fees to ...

Our cruise was outstanding. This was our first river cruise after many ocean cruises. Vantage did a fantastic job of holding our hand from start to finish. It was without a doubt the best we have ever been on. The history and culture woven into the trip was obviously thought out by the agents at Vantage. From the greeting by our program director at the Amsterdam airport to our departure at ...

We are a family of 14 people (4 generations!) who just completed a cruise of Portugal's Douro River on the ms Douro Spirit with Vantage Deluxe World Travel. It was the first river cruise for all but one of us and was a magnificent experience. Douro River ships are small-ish, because the lock system on the Douro can't accommodate larger ships, but the ship was outfitted very nicely and our rooms ...

This was our sixth trip with Vantage, thirds on the Navigator......and all in the same cabin!!! We started in Prague with the pre-trip extension and it was a highlight of the trip! Prague and Bratislava are both beautiful and our group of 24 really bonded in the first 24 hours or so. Navigator has been remodeled since our last trip on her, and she looks beautiful, although I hate the new name of ...

What more can I say other than the title of this review. This was my first river cruise and though I have been on many large ship cruises this was my first on a small ship and the first on a river. Actually this Grand European River Cruise by Vantage far exceeded my expectations. I thought I would be bored on a small ship without all the facilities of an ocean liner but to my surprise this was one ...
