My husband surprised me with the cruise for our 30th anniversary. From the time they met us at the Budapest airport until we left the boat in Amsterdam we were impressed with the way they took care of us. Our cruise was from Budapest to Amsterdam. We added several excursions including day trips to Salzburg and Munich. We enjoyed everything! The staff are amazing, the boat is lovely, food is great, scenery is spectacular, tours are well planned and the local guides are very good! They bring a special dessert to all celebrations - since our anniversary was the first night they had ours waiting in our stateroom which we appreciated. The bartenders, Christian and Vladi were great - they wanted to talk to you and make your journey the best it could be. The waitstaff was personable and attentive. The cruise director, Marie and hotel manager, Klaus were always available and even went on the 16 mile bike ride with us and brought champagne to celebrate making it to the end safely! What more do you want? And why haven’t you booked it yet?? I’d go on one of their cruises anytime and anywhere. Yes, there do tend to be more senior citizens on these cruises but that’s a matter of disposable income and free time. We are in our early 50’s and never felt out of place. These are not the party cruises of the Caribbean so don’t go expecting a party and constant food. This is about learning more about Europe and seeing history.

Wonderful way to experience Europe

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom
Cabin E
Although the cabin was smaller and the window was a water level porthole it was still comfortable and more than adequate for our needs. I decided to just work with the porthole and took a picture out of it each morning for our “morning view” status! This ended up being a lot of fun and interesting - especially the day another boat was parked next to us and our view was their kitchen!
The bathroom was very well designed.
The closet space was adequate for a two week trip.
The housekeeping staff did a great job keeping it clean.
