We chose this cruise for the reputation of the company, the destinations (Danube and Christmas Markets) and for the romantic time of year.
We were welcomed with champagne and a toast by our Captain. We met our outstanding Cruise Director, Sebastian Leroy, and the fun began! Sebastian is professional, considerate, attentive to detail, hardworking, and funny!
Our ship was clean, lovely, and welcoming. It was easy to get around the ship and enjoy the different amenities. The crew were warm and friendly. They made you feel like you are special, even though you know that six hours ago they said "goodbye" to the last ship full of guests.
Well thought out cabin layout. Roomy bath size. Excellent lighting features. Large windows and easy access to outside balcony. Comfy bed that was bigger than a queen size. Large hanging cabinet and additional storage shelves allowed us to fully unpack and stow our suitcases for the time aboard.
We were unable to tour Nuremberg but the cruise more than made up for it by taking us all the way to Budapest.
Charming village. I purchased traditional Christmas Advent calendars here at the local shops. We visited on Saturday and both Christmas markets and shops were open.
