New experience having never done a river cruise before. The Rhine was lovely and everything about the ship was wonderful. The only thing I didn't like was getting up reasonably early every morning to go on a trip. Having said that we did see a lot of lovely places. All the crew were excellent and very friendly. The on- shore trips were well organised and everything went to time. The special private concert we went to see was a new experience and most enjoyable. Would like to have seen a few more of the passengers making more of an effort to dress up a little more formal for such a special event. Our flight to Basel was only slightly delayed and because it was an afternoon departure from Bristol we only just made the ship in time before it left at 17.00hrs so maybe an earlier flight would have been better. We did not see anything of Basal.

Excellent but full on

Cabin Review

Cabin 235
The cabin was beautiful with plenty of wardrobe and shelf space. The only problem we had was noise from presumably the engines because we were near the very back of the ship.
