I love cruises as it gives you a taste of several areas without having to drive yourself around and only unpack your suitcase once. I have also been on many ocean cruises so the river cruise was much more intimate. This made it much easier to learn the staff by name and easier for them to treat us special as well.

I was really surprised at how easy embarkation and disembarkation went. I was envisioning long lines and there was none of that.

This was our first trip to Europe to celebrate my 50th birthday. I loved the excursions that came with the trip. It helped us get a taste of the area and allowed some free time to either explore on our own or relax back on the ship. We made sure to utilize the bicycles, hot tub, gym and lounge area. The gym could use to be bigger, maybe atleast 2-3 treadmills and a weight set (other than the 3 pounds weights that were there). Oh and a bigger window so you can look outside while working out would be a plus.

Cabin B

I think the cabin was perfect for the two of us. The bed was most comfortable of all the beds we slept in before & after the cruise. The amenities and storage space was perfect for us. I loved having the sliding door to allow fresh air into the room and to be able to enjoy the view.
