The itinerary was wonderful--so many breathtaking sights and first rate experiences! Every bend in the river provided views of stunning castles, vineyards, churches, or quaint towns! The cabins were comfortable with plenty of storage areas. The public areas were roomy with floor to ceiling windows and comfortable seating to view the fantastic scenery if you didn't want to sit on the open deck. The staff seemed to anticipate our every need. MIf it was raining, umbrellas were handy. On cold days, there were warm blankets and specialty hot drinks. The food on board ship was very good, and we always had several choices for each meal throughout the day. Often regional specialties were highlighted. Fresh baked cookies were always available. Wine and soda were always available at no charge with our meal. Often we docked right in the middle of the city. How convenient!! The shore excursions were very organized, and we all had earphones so we could hear our guide. Our cruise director was very knowledgeable and gave educational talks about the area we would be visiting before each port. After awhile the churches started running together though! There was a nice balance between organized tours and time for us to explore on our own. One day several of us went with the chef to a farmers market--rode the subway and sampled lots of regional foods--FUN!! Entertainment on board the ship highlighted the region. Some nights there was only a piano playe, but by the end of the day everyone was tired and gladly retired early!!

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom
Cabin E
We choose the least expensive cabin, and I'm so glad we did! We had a high window that provided a lot of light and a very big window sill that was great for drying laundry! The bathroom had heated floors and the toiletries were great. The tv (if you had time to watch) had many channel options.
