The cruise was from Amsterdam to Budapest. Positive points: Size of cabin was decent Crew was very nice with very few exceptions. Curise director very experient and willing to help, he did a great work. Free shore excursions Coffee lounge open 24 hours was very nice Breakfast had a large variety. Negative points: Some of the stops were very quick, only a few hours. Some of the excursions gave too much details and left very little time to exlore the area. Food although well presented, with the exception of breakfast, had some unusual seasonings with herbs. Did not like the food at alll. One diiner I found a hair on my plate and I received very little apologies. Most of the entertainment onboard, except for the beer tasting was somewhat boring. The top open deck was closed most of the time. It seems the water level in the rivers was high and they had to close the access to the top level in order to pass under some bridges.

Nice Experience
