This was the perfect holiday for our party of 6. Everything went realy well from the flight to Amsterdam from Birmingham to the return flights, Basel to Amsterdam and then again on to Birmingham.
We travelled by coach for the short journey to the the boat where we were able to check in, our luggage already on board and brought to our staterooms.
The afternoon was free to explore Amsterdam before we rejoined the boat for dinner and set sail.
The food and service was second to none during the whole trip. The crew were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them.
We had several stops and sightseeing trips during the journey, all very well organised and not too strenuous considering the age group of the majority of passengers. Passengers were also able to go off on their own if it was their preference.
River cruising is the ideal way to see large parts of different destinations, the boats are not too big and impersonal and it was easy to make new friends. We are certainly going to do more river cruising in the future1
Our stateroom was on the lower deck, small but perfect for 2 people. A very comfortable bed. We were well looked after by Valentin who kept us supplied with everything we needed.The room and bathroom were kept spotless.
