We decided to a river cruise and picked somewhere we had never been. The ship was well laid out the service was excellent and friendly. the included excursions were well organised and informative. A wonderful trip, and we will definitely go river cruising again We did a Mediterranean cruise some time ago, and found the larger ship not so welcoming. The river cruise ship is more intimate and friendly and has a much nicer atmosphere. The local guides on the excursions were very knowledgeable and approachable. We liked the fact that everything is included, no extra costs for gratuities, and no extra cost for excursions. There was an optional extra but we did not take it. The dining was terrific and wine was included and not stinted. The cruise director gave out information on ports and countries we passed through .which kept us well informed. A great experience and really excellent value for money
