The ship was quiet, roomy, and the stewards were awesome! Even though the room was near the rear of the ship we seldom heard the engines vibration. I loved the waitress at our table each night as well. She was fun and very entertaining each night.
I also enjoyed the food from each area we visited on the menus. The morning continental breakfast was a little sparse and might include a few more items. The only tour guide I was not very impressed with was the guide in Strasbourg. He was so hard to understand and rushed us through the tour (although it was raining at the time).
The tours were in first class buses which we enjoyed the short trips to each area. I loved the tours being included in the price of the trip as well as the drinks included. We met likeminded folks during our trip and still stay in touch to this day. We plan to visit them in California sometime in the future!
