Travelmarvel Jewel Cruise Review by KayL

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2015
  • Destination: Europe River

Travelled on both ships as we were bused between the Danube and the Rhine. This was done smoothly whilst we were on a excursion. The very low water level required this. The tour was very good. POSITIVES

Tour leader Herbert was excellent and all tour guides were outstanding.

The staff were very friendly and helpful

The rooms had more than enough storage, bathroom was big enough and the sliding door was good to watch the scenery and get fresh air.

Bed very comfortable and food was very good and seemed endless. The drinks were available for lunch and dinner and were unlimited.

Public areas were always being cleaned and the hand hygiene was monitored more on the Diamond than the Jewel.

The lounge area was comfortable and upstairs deck good for a walk but was closed for 4 days as apparently is usual for the river cruise due to the bridges - not told about this prior


Fitness area very small

Musical evening in Vienna was disappointing for price.

Castle and visit to Bonn should be replaced by a stop in Cologne.

Overall the cruise was very good and the scenery was excellent and included tours were well planned.

Cabin Review

Cabin A 335

The cabin was just big enough with an excellent amount of storage. Sliding door was good to have for fresh air and bathroom was big enough.

However room 335 on the Diamond had a rattle that was evident in the nights that we were travelling.

Canal Tour

Unfortunately the rain spoiled the cruise as it was difficult to see all the sights and made photography difficult.
