Having seen the cruises advertised on TV I rang for a brochure. When it arrived a thought the cruise too expensive for the number of days. I later received a flyer offering £1000 off per person and rang to book the cruise that appealed to us the most. We flew from a local airport which with hindsight was a mistake as it meant a transit stop in Amsterdam on both journeys. Flights would have been direct had we travelled from Heathrow.

The Hotels we stayed in at Berlin and Prague were excellent. The organisation was the best we have ever experienced. The excursions and guides were faultless, informative and helpful. The places we visited were very interesting and the on board entertainment related to the trips, The resident pianist was very good and did his best to please everyone with their choice of music.

Our Cruise Director Radim was amazing, he worked tirelessly to ensure that every single passenger had a wonderful time. Nothing was too much trouble for anybody at any time day of night.

Cabin Review

Standard Stateroom

Cabin C

Only the second river cruise we have done. Obviously the boat was considerably smaller than Ocean ships we have travelled on. The cabin was extremely small with no fridge or tea making facility and very limited wardrobe space. However the standard of cleanliness was excellent and the beds were comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble for our cabin steward, she was very efficient.
