Sail Date: Nov 2016
Cabin: Panorama Suite with French Balcony

Our travel agent found the deal of the century for us.

We had been contemplating taking a European River Cruise - Germany, perhaps a Christmas Market Cruise - for several years and finally I went to the travel agent and told her what we had in mind. Our only previous cruising experience was with Windstar Cruises - their flagship Clipper ship the Star Clipper - and we LOVED that... so... we figured a river cruise would be right up our ally.

We were right!

Cabin Review

Panorama Suite with French Balcony

Cabin B

Wonderful layout; comfortable bed; small flat-screen TV with English language programming - mostly news channels. Upscale modern feel to the cabin. Large enough; enough closet space; panorama suite with French balcony.
