Sail Date: Jul 2018
Cabin: Veranda Superior

Several friends took this same cruise on the Romantic Danube months before; they just raved about how great it was; that we just had to go.

So glad we did! We heeded their great advice of arriving a day early and staying over an extra night! How relaxing!

In addition to all of the cruise members performing outstanding, Oliver, our cruise director, went way above and beyond to each and every guests. His last night entertaining performance was way above the top of the entertainment bar!

Cabin Review

Veranda Superior

Cabin A

This roomy, spacious cabin, with private veranda with deck chairs, was very comfortable.

The one most pleasant surprise we discovered on our own which our friends didn't share with us is the incredible shower head water pressure! Unprepared the first time, it just about knocked us off our feet! Wow! What a insane pleasure!

Port Reviews


The bus tour to the monastery with the apricots produced by the resident monks were very educational. A nice touch was the free sampling of the apricot products, and then we knew what to purchase in the gift shop.

The best surprise was upon returning to the ship, the crew members passed out some of the same great samples of the apricots.


The very knowledgeable local tour guides id a great job!
