Sail Date: Oct 2016

This is a trip for the curious. Do you like to try new food sensations? Do you enjoy learning? Do you like to mix with fellow travelers and ship's staff? Do you enjoy history both recent and distant? If not try something else.

The weather may change as will the sights you will see, the wine you will drink and the people you will meet. Isn't that what travel is all about - new experiences on all levels.?

The staff on this ship could not have been better. They tried with all their being to make us older folk happy. They work long, long hours for our benefit and pleasure. They gave us the impression they really liked us which is tough when you have to treat a new group every ten days or so. The program directors are very well chosen, knowledgeable, gregarious and great "cat" herders.

Cabin Review

Cabin lowest level

Cabin was fine a bit noisy (we were on the lowest level), with some mechanical sounds but the engine has to go somewhere. Plenty of closet space, enough room to move around - how much time do we really use the room except to sleep anyway? Bathroom totally acceptable. Room staff excellent. TV in each room.

Port Reviews


Excellent and moving recounting of the recent history of the Syrian refugees in Hungry.

Wonderful choice of narrator.


Home visit to a Communist era apartment building. Extremely interesting and gracious hosts. A winner all around.


First hand account of the Velvet Revolution. Location of talk was in a 400 year old pear orchard. Wonderfully presented recollections.
