Trip Details

  • Destination: Europe River

Great offer from Iglu Cruise. We chose a lower deck cabin with two very large circular portholes. The cabin was very roomy with lots of storage and beautiful shower-room.

It had safe deposit box, fridge and three free bottles of water daily. The beds were very comfortable and the cabin kept immaculately clean. Embarcation was very smooth and our reception very welcoming. The staff in all areas were friendly, efficient and professional. The whole ship had a very family-atmosphere from the Captain down - everyone was very approachable.

The food, drink (included with lunch and dinner), and service were some of the best we have encountered. The food and drink supplied reflected the areas we travelled through. The variety and quantity of food was excellent at all meals.

On two evenings local entertainers were brought on board, which proved to be popular with the guests.

The ports of call (even the ones we had not heard of) were excellent with very good guides. During excursions we were supplied with radio headsets enabling us to get a good commentary from the guides. Disappointed we did not stop at the Square of the Heroes in Budapest. However, we were delighted with the evening sail up the Danube in daylight, coming back down to Budapest in the evening with all the lights on.

Optional excursions: They were our only disappointment. Trip to Schonnburg Palace. We spent one hour with guide in Palace and then had one hour to see the extensive gardens, carriages museum, zoo and maze. We would have preferred much longer in the grounds. Also, when we went to the Vienna concert we were unable to see the dancers due to the poor seating - and we were near the front.

An excellent cruise we would recommend.
