First time on River Cruise. Really appreciated the size and intimacy of a river cruise. Also, being able to walk off the ship right into town for serval of the ports/ cities along the Danube. Service was excellent. Really enjoyed most of the excursions. Excellent in country guides. Highlights of the trip: mid day organ concert in Passau, sailing through the Wachau Valley, Sailing into Budapest at night, visit to Gottesweig Abbey, Mozart Concert in Vienna, visit to Medieval Town of Czesy Krumwald( Czech Republic. ) Food was a bit of a letdown. breakfast were fine but dinners lacked taste. We decided to have two dinners off the ship. Found a fun Greek restaurant in the square in KremsAustria and an excellent Hungarian restaurant along the Danube by the Chain Bridge in Budapest. Really appreciated the daily briefing provided by David our Cruise Director. Evening entertainment was a bit hokey. Enjoyed how to make apple strudel demonstration with ships chef.

Service Excellent, Very Good Excursions, Food not so much
