We chose this cruise because we had never been to the cities and countries included in the tour. The entire experience was delightful, especially the food, staff, and excursions. We met some amazing people and learned so much from the excursions led by educated and informed guides. The dining experience was both visually and gastronomically pleasing, and we grew fond of the cheerful and attentive staff. We always felt well cared for and found answers to our questions at the front desk. The cabins were kept immaculate and well stocked with towels and bath products. We enjoyed the lectures and informative meetings in the lounge, especially the Mozart lecture before the concert in Vienna. The lecture on the history of the Danube along with a slide show was fascinating. We left the ship with rich memories and new knowledge. I think of the cruise every day and am eager to cruise again!
