This was our first river cruise and is a great way of exploring the Rhine Valley. We arrived late in the day to explore Basel but were made very welcome on board. The staff were lovely and nothing too much trouble. Dining was excellent with plenty of choices at the buffet during breakfast and lunch. In the evening the waiters served us some mouthwatering cuisine. Since were not herded to the same table each day we have made several new friends Michael our cruise director had arranged a choice of guided and different paced excursions each day for us.These were very informative and the guides had a lovey sense of humour. Micheal was great and always made sure we were well looked after and armed with maps and times to be back on our free time to explore. The staff one evening entertained us including dancing from Indonesia and sketches akin to "Two soups" from Victoria Wood. This was the best show I had seen in ages. I would certainly recommend this way to travel and can't wait to try another river cruise.

Fantastic

Cabin Review

Cabin 207
The cabin was lovey and clean with lovely staff with excellent attention to detail to make your room feel special. There was a place to sit and watch the wonderful scenery going by.
