Chose the Elbe River cruise because not as high traffic as Rhine or Danube. Plus we're Lutheran and we were to stop in Wittenberg 9 days before the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Prague fabulous at the beginning; Berlin equally fabulous at the end. Of course Wittenberg was special. However, my highlight was Dresden. I was fascinated by the way the city was painstakingly & authentically reconstructed. Beautiful, particularly the Marienkirche! Food was extraordinary both onboard and on shore. Particularly enjoyed touring the museum in Prague with the seated luncheon and the live chamber music. And the onboard variety evening with Katy Luther and her dear friend Barb Cranach was a hoot! What else to say? we stayed in luxurious 5 star hotels in both the hearts of Prague and Berlin. Conveniently within walking distance of most of the sights. Accessible & not too strenuous. Finally, particularly enjoyed our cruise director... great sense of humor!

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite
Cabin AA N/A
Spacious & comfortable, considering the size allotted on a small river cruise vessel. Well appointed, plenty of storage, wonderful bathroom - never felt cramped and always private. Onboard service was fantastic - pleasant & efficient.
