This was our first river cruise and we found the size of the ship perfect. We made great new friends and enjoyed the staff immensely. Sitting in the lounge after dinner listening to the piano music was relaxing and fun. Tours included an overview of each town/village/city we visited and were well done. The headsets were a great improvement to what we had experienced on an ocean cruise. Our cruise included 5 days aboard the Artistry II cruising through Austria and a land package in Munich at the Westin. The only thing missing was more time aboard the ship.
The cabin was well designed for comfort, utilizing every foot of space for ease, storage and move ability. We enjoyed the doors which opened fully making total room a balcony but be aware that on river cruises often the vessel is docked right next to another ship and the view is the cabin next door.
The TV offered many free movie channels but we never had time to view -- always out of the stateroom. Free Wi-Fi was welcome bonus.
