This river cruise was wonderful! Well organized in every respect. Food excellent. Cabin a little small (French Balcony) The french balcony was great and a savings from Veranda. Going thru locks was fascinating. Unfortunately due to flooding, the top deck was closed for the majority of the trip. Also, could not make it to last 3 destinations for same reason. We took busses. Cruise line was great. Ship very clean, well kept. It was less than a year old. All excursions were fabulous. Very different that ocean Caribbean cruises. No beach, no pool, no casino, essentially no shopping. Ship much smaller that typical ocean cruise. A lot makes it difficult to compare to an ocean cruise. 2 different animals, like comparing apples to oranges. They are both fruits, but that's it. Lots of exercise doing all the walking with the excursions. There is no fitness center on board, but there is plenty of walking. I walked 40 miles during this trip. Would I go again? In a heartbeat.

FABULOUS IN EVERY WAY
