Recommended by friends, have been on many ocean cruises and thought this would be a good change. Cabin, staff and route excellent except unable to use top deck on last three days due to number of locks and bridges to be negotiated.
Breakfast and lunch were buffet style and well presented and adequate. Dinner however can only be described as disappointing as it verges on nouvelle couisine. A real shock to the system in comparison to ocean going ships, especially considering the considerable extra cost of river via a visa ocean cruises.
The daily trips were well organised and the guides of high standards
Cabins were of similar size to ocean ships and owing to the newness of this ship, were very well designed and of high standard.
Staff weee friendly and the cruise director was ever available and did his job in a very efficient and polite manner.
Enjoyed all of cruise apart from evening dinner, afraid the seas and oceans will be getting my trade in the future.
Very comfortable and well appointed
