Went on the cruise because it fit our timeframe and part of group had free cruise because last years cruise couldn't move because of high water and they were given another cruise for free.
Only two groups of Americans on the cruise 11 people--they are not prepared for English speakers very well at all. We had to ask for all news and daily stops and maps in English. They were not automatically given to us til the week was half over.
We received no info prior to the cruise. No info on excursions, no luggage tags, absolutely nothing!
Food just average or less. But plenty of it at meal time.
Lounge/bar musical entertainer very good--spoke no English but could sing American songs.
Wait staff was all EXCELLENT. One staff person assigned to help Americans and she got some info when we asked, but wasn't prepared for us and didn't know the answers herself.
She was very nice though.
Just don't think they are ready for non-German speaking customers.
No excursions with English guide unless all 11 would sign up for the tour. No time to look at
excursions to decide if we wanted to take them. Had to sign up with no detailed info about the excursion also.
This is my fifth river cruise and this one was not up to par.
