We chose this cruise because we have never been to Europe and we were very intrigued by Paris and Prague. Germany was just something in between that we had very little knowledge of or expectations of. After exploring Paris (amazing) we ... Read More

We hoped to get a good feeling of Prague and the castles on the rivers traveled. We did all that and more. Super food and drink, great accommodations and very responsive crew. Castles at night were a particular treat as a photographer, so ... Read More
Wanted to see Germany and wanted to revisit Prague and Paris. Everything about this trip was first class: rooms, food, service, excursions. We especially liked that all the tour guides were specific to each locale. This gave us a better ... Read More
