Sail Date: Jun 2018
Cabin: Deluxe Stateroom with Window
Looking away from window.
Looking toward door.

We are fourth time river cruisers, with a dozen more ocean cruises. We chose this cruise based on itinerary, price and to travel with two other couples, who are also of the early retirement age. We have previously completed this cruise twice with a competing line.

The provider's website is intuitively easy to understand and use.

Our package included the international flights; however, travelling a non-direct route to Europe was tiring and annoying.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with Window

Cabin D

Our cabin was clean, well-stocked and serviced regularly (several times per day). Containing sufficient storage for our two week stay. The room size was somewhat smaller than the ocean going vessels. Temperature control was adequate – with noticeable variance in the air conditioning mode. The line offers to adjust the firmness of the bed! The linen are soft, of quality and well laundered.
