We had taken the Rhine Rhapsody cruise in 2015 and were very pleased with it. The service, food and shore excursions (and guides) were all excellent. There was a younger demographic this time, and people seemed more diligent about attending the daily briefing sessions making them aware of the different levels of difficulty of the shore excursions. This meant fewer delays for those who chose the more strenuous excursions. There were several passengers who missed the boat after shore excursions which caused delays to the rest of us. In fact, our program director told us that there were more people who missed the boat during our one week than during the whole of the 2015 season! Overall, we enjoyed ourselves immensely. If we had to voice one criticism about the excursions, we felt that the tour of Vienna was a bit too brief (we were on Danube Waltz). We would highly recommend the 3-day add-on in Prague. Also, despite the fact that we had to leave the ship at 4:00 AM, we appreciated being given Sky Priority and Premium Economy status for the flight back to Toronto.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom
Cabin E 108
Our cabin was excellent. Our housekeeper did a superb job! The only criticism was that the water system was EXTREMELY noisy! We did not experience this in 2015 when we were in stateroom 113.
