Tauck had the best reputation and they proved it! Every aspect of the the tour from planning through the final trip to the airport was planned and executed in an excellent manner. The Tauck people on the boat and their local guides brought the river and its ports to life in a wonderful and warm manner.

The two days in Prague before the cruise were packed with interesting and informative tours and insights about this great city. Tauck personnel were with us every step of the way, making the experience easy and enjoyable. Local guides were provided for major attractions and areas of interest.

The Remensburg embarkation was a pleasant and easy experience. Life on the Danube was soon learned and absorbed. All ship personnel were pleasant, helpful and kind; they made you feel at home. The accommodations were well-designed and executed. Food service and quality were excellent; alcoholic beverages were all included in the tour price. Onboard life was as busy yet relaxed at all times. Our small complement of passengers rapidly became a family of fellow travelers rather than just passengers; we made many friends along the way.

Cabin Review

Cabin mid-range

Well-designed and executed, the cabin was a marvel of efficiency and comfort. The beds were some of the best we had ever slept on. Everything worked, many amenities were provided and it was blessedly quiet! Room attendants were meticulous in the care and attention.
