Had always wanted to do a European river cruise. Daughter's travel agent recommended this cruise company. They are certainly well organized and deliver a good experience. On the positive side: - Staff are attentive and work hard to serve. - The cruise director (Sylvie Magyar) was excellent. Very well organized. A real pro. - Facilities by and large are first class. - Tours, entertainment and events are sophisticated. - Having daily news for the countries represented was great. - Having dedicated buses following the latter part of the tour was great. On the negative side: - Very disappointed that evening meals for the most part were international without a local cuisine. When that was presented, the guests overwhelmingly chose that 135 of 151. - Some (not all) senior staff were unwilling/unable to deal with errors that the company made. One involved cabin safety and the other over-charging. Neither was adequatley addressed. - Rules are inflexible.

Good introduction to this part of Europe

Cabin Review

Cabin 110
The cabin was certainly adequate for what we were looking for. Size was adequate. Washroom excellent.

Some of the channels did not work which was frustrating.
