We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and wanted to try a river cruise. Honestly, when we first saw the age of the passengers we were a little uncertain because we are in our early 50's and they were 75+. But we agree that we had as much fun with these passengers than we have ever on a trip! And we made friends who we will stay in contact with for years to come. The boat was very comfortable, the rooms large with private balconies. The food was all locally sourced, delivered fresh at every stop, and as good as any 4-star restaurant. The onboard historian was excellent and spoke several times on a wide variety of topics. The musical groups were very professional and personable and had the whole boat singing along, clapping and dancing. The onshore excursions were really good, but my only complaint with the entire cruise was that they tended to rush us through the excursions in order to get us back to the boat in time for meals. We all would have opted to skip a meal rather than rush through the historical excursions. The service was impeccable! From the cleaning crew to the deck hands to the the service crew to the "hotel manager" - I cannot say enough wonderful things about them. They all made the effort to greet us by name, to stop and chat, to share about themselves. Truly a one-of-a-kind experience.

We met new friends who will ALWAYS be our friends
