Never done river cruise before. Can only compare to ocean cruise . Was first class . The staff could not have done any more for anyone at any time . Mixed ages and fitness level. They accommodated everyone. Hedleigh our tour director was outstanding. His cool ,calm and very easy manner meant everyone was informed well and catered for at every level . Port excursions. Great choices or choice your own . Dining first class . Drinks abundant and great service . Ship was clean tidy and well maintained . People got cold / flu but I am not sure what more the crew could have done to prevent. People just don’t do the right thing. Use the handwash Use the tongs at meals etc. stay in cabin if sick - some have disregard for all this . Could not have been more done. Only thing I would add is. If they ask for dress code ie long pants for men and women at night Stick to it . Thongs and shorts and t shirts without collars are not night attire . Dress that little bit better Aussie men. You let the side down !

Terrific
