Amazing Ship ~ Amazing Crew
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
The Chef, Michael, and his Staff created and served us some of the finest and most creative meals I have ever had. We enjoyed the professional and friendly wait staff ~ in particular, Tudor, who made our mealtime experiences fun with very special attention and More good humor.
The Captain, Peter, welcomed us to the Bridge and delighted in our questions and interest in the Ship and sharing the history and interesting points of our destinations. He is a brilliant man, and a superb Captain, who saw us through some difficulties with the level of the rivers and made our travels as close to perfect as possible. The Cruise Director, Vlad, worked closely with the Captain to make certain that every day was a positive experience regardless of alterations to the cruising schedule. In fact, if changes were made, the resulting tours were equivalent or mostly exceeded my expectations. The two men worked together flawlessly to overcome any complications and keep the passengers happy.
On a side note, we are pleased that we booked two extra days in B & B's in Amsterdam and Vienna at the beginning and end of the cruise. It's nice if you have the time to be able to relax after a long flight before the beginning of the cruise and not have to rush off of the ship directly to the airport. Less
Cabin review: Panorama View319
The Cabin was perfect. We felt like we had plenty of room to organize our belongings, to relax and enjoy the amazing view from the truly Panoramic Sliding Door, and the beds were ultra-comfortable. One of the aspects which surprised me most was how quiet the space was. We absolutely could not hear any noise from the other rooms around us ~ great sound proofing.
