The pace on the river was perfect. The mix of day light and night time cruising was very good. Lots to watch along the shore including a variety of birds. Staff was very friendly and available. Cabins were comfortable and there were lounges and deck chairs if we wanted more space. Boat was new and very clean. Given the newness of the boat I was surprised the beds were sunken toward the middle. Food was very plentiful and always very tasty. Several options were provided for each meal, including half portions. Presentation was excellent. They were very open to special requests and accommodating to passengers with handicaps. There was always snack food and drinks available between meals. Selection of evening musical entertainers could have been better. Educational presentations were interesting, but not necessarily a match for the area we were cruising, nor were they entirely accurate. Excursions left promptly. Shore time was limited to 4-5 hours and could have been extended a bit. Some tours seemed rushed. Overall, I enjoyed the cruise very much and would recommend them to others looking for a relaxing trip.
Space was satisfactory. Balcony was good. Beds felt pretty worn for a new boat. They were hollowed out toward the middle like a hammock. Comfortable enough, but not flat.
