  3. River Duchess
We were a little hesitant to do a river cruise: would we at less than 60 be the youngest? Will we be confined? Can we take 10 nights of RSL entertainment? On all accounts wrong! Mid range age, great facilities on ship, fabulous entertainment with rich lectures on the local culture, top quality food, great, in fact superb staff - we had a ball. It may have helped that the boat being the last of the season going up the Danube was 50% full - it may have been over half of them Australians, or just the places we visited and friendly professional tours, but even as a seasoned traveller, this was the best organised travelling experience we have ever had. Highly recommended, the only slight problem we had, was we needed to exercise early in the tour, as we couldn't say no to the fabulous fare!! Get on the bikes, enjoy the staff and clientele and absorbe the surrounding culture. Amazing.
