From start to finish it was well organised, all transfers were well executed. .Apart from the actual airport, all luggage was handled by staff and put straight to cabin. Disembarking was good with time zones arranged and all luggage taken to the coach by staff. The cabin was good with two single beds together, storage under bed for cases meant you weren't bumping in to them, storage was more than adequate. Also a coffee table and two armchairs. The shower was powerful and good although the ensuite wasn't massive it was more than adequate. The cleaning was good with chocolate on pillow and bottled water replenished when required. All the staff were really friendly and helpful with no shirkers, nothing was too much trouble and more than attentive in the dinning room, refilling glasses as required, and serving the the Horizon lounge. The food was brilliant with a wide range of choice but if you couldn't find anything you liked, there was always steak, salmon or chicken available by request. The cruise director Jana was so friendly and enthusiastic as were all the various officers. It just felt like a family and a really nice one at that. There were lots of little "extras " which added to the value. On the final night at Budapest ,there was an evening sailing which was spectacular. Walking and bus tours were included in the cost and all were very imformative and interesting with plenty of freetime left to do what you wanted. I will definitely cruise with this Line again they have only been going since 2014 but they are great we have done sea cruising many times but this was our first river cruise.

Cabin Review

Cabin 116
Although we didn't have floor to ceiling windows ,we were on the bottom floor with a window you could see out of if you were fairly tall, it didn't matter you still got the views and upstairs in dinning room, lounge and top deck were fantastic.
