The included excursions in each port were well organized, utilized comfortable modern coaches, were great overviews of the port city and were conducted by knowledgeable and friendly local guides. It would have been nice to know ahead of time that the Cologne beer tour would require skipping the farewell dinner on board, which was a rather special one. The cruise directory was friendly, informative, attentive and a good public speaker. The cabin and wait staff were friendly, attentive and did their jobs with excellence. The ship was modern, clean and well appointed. The food was very good as were the wines. Foods local to the region being travelled were offered. The desserts/pastries were especially good. The coffee machines were a great extra. As minor criticisms, there could have been more variety in the off the menu breakfast options and some of the beef selections had rather tough cuts of beef. Also, the Wellington had a small portion of puff pastry on top instead of being encased in puff pastry. Lobster would be a nice addition, though at variance with being a local cuisine. The on ship entertainment could have had more variety...perhaps a small ensemble group instead of a lone pianist, perhaps a comedy night or some variety act on some nights. There was trivia one day...that was enjoyable..perhaps a few more game-like activities that involve a subset of interested passengers would do well. There was an utter lack of exercise equipment... if there could be just one room set aside with some treadmills or other such equipment, that would be appreciated.

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom
Cabin B 229
Well appointed, comfortable bed, clean, adequate electrical outlets, efficient space utilization, nice veranda, plenty of hot water. Variety on the TV was nice with respect to movie offerings, but somewhat lacking on live TV options... most notably U.S. CNN Headline News would have been nice.
