River Beatrice on the beautiful Danube!

Sail Date: June 2014
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
Embarkation: Passau
What an amazing vacation! Exceeded all our expectations. The boat was beautiful and had all the amenities anyone could need, truly a high end hotel on the water!

The shore excursions were all amazing and educational. We really enjoyed Franz Joseph and Queen Sissy who set the tone for the week of tours. The tour guides were all very pleasant and knowledgeable and were very good at keeping the tours on schedule. The 20 kilometer bike ride in Passau was one of the highlights for us but all the tours were excellent. Each town or city we visited had its own character and sense of place and pride. We were amazed at how the bus drivers maneuvered the big buses along the winding cobble stone streets and busy roads.

The food on the boat was sumptuous and there was lots of variety.

The public spaces on-board were lovely. The upper deck with lounge chairs and lots of shade for those who wanted some relief from the sun was the place with the best views. The lounge was More always open and that's where the bar was so it was a popular place to hang out. Another great amenity was the coffee station on each of the decks. You could get a coffee, espresso, latte, tea or water whenever you wanted it. We watched a couple of World Cup games in the Captains lounge on the big screen.

I have to say that what really made the cruise so awesome was the crew and the service. The Captain was around all the time and was very friendly. He did a short presentation about the history of the boat and how it works, got a little technical for me but many guests enjoyed those details.

We had a lot of fun with waiter Richie. Ibi the cruise director could answer any questions we had and made sure we had all the details we needed for excursions and events happening on the boat. All the crew were awesome, attentive and very friendly.

Saving up for the next time we sail on a river boat.

Thanks to all the staff for a memorable vacation! Less

Cabin review: 332

The cabin was very comfortable with lots of storage room in cupboards, drawers and under the bed. Everyday the itinerary for the next days adventure was left on the foot of the bed so we were able to plan our day. Beds were very comfortable, water pressure was great and the room was clean and bright.
