We were very disappointed by this river cruise. It did not live up to our expectations and was not really worth the money paid. Entertainment was very limited, no deck games, evening entertainment was not varied and there was very little to do when on board. During our week the captain decided that the sundeck was to be sanded down. This caused considerable noise, dustiness and disruption, making the sundeck unusable for most of the time and seeing as the temperatures were in the high 30's it would have been preferable to sit outside rather than in the confines of our cabin. Even after complaining our points were ignored. However, cabins were well appointed and clean. Food was good but basic and not as gourmet as was expected from the write-up. There seems to be a high turnover of staff which made us wonder what the issues were. We will not be recommending this river ship to family and friends.
