This trip was recommended by friends who had travelled with Travelmarvel on the Rhine-Main-Danube River cruise. As seniors this was to be our last overseas holiday and we could not have picked a more wonderful holiday. The courtesy and warmth of the welcome in Amsterdam continued throughout the cruise. The staff worked so hard to ensure we were spoiled no matter what we were doing or wherever we were on any given day. Our Cruise Director (Roland) was brilliant and no matter how busy he was he always had time to answer a question or make suggestions to enhance our experience. The shore tours were professionally conducted by local tour guides who were very knowledgeable and most patient. There were a number of optional shore tours which generally were centred on locations some distance from the river. Although the live concert in Vienna was just brilliant. The choices in the dining room of the ship were excellent and the beverages flowed freely. We believe the cruise was excellent value for money and would recommend it to anyone who wants to experience the beauty and history of Europe in a most relaxing and pampered manner.
Rhine Deck cabin midships. Main cabin and ensuite were perfectly maintained and spotlessly clean. Ensuite shower was so good wanted to bring it home.
We took an upgrade to a top deck cabin which was excellent but with so many scenic spots along both sides of the river a cabin on the mid deck would have been fine also and cabins on either side of the ship have equal scenic vistas. As the lounge and restaurant are at the front of the ship, a cabin nearer the front may save a little walking on board. Seating arrangements in the restaurant are totally flexible. this allows you to meet new fellow travellers at each sitting or if you have found new best friends that is also fine. No need to worry about your lvel of fitness. There is no need to feel like you will miss out on any of the shore tours. Groups are organised based on your estimated level of fitness so that the guides can pace the tours accordingly.
