Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2018
Cabin: Veranda Stateroom

We were fortunate the Danube water levels rose enough that we could sail most of the trip.

Excellent crew in dining, housekeeping and cruise director kept us informed throughout cruise. Breakfast was best meal for our group of six. Excellent made to order omelette or fried eggs, numerous warm dishes, cheese, cold meats, best oatmeal with assortment of toppings, wonderful pastries and homemade jams.

When we cruised through Wachau Valley, delightful afternoon tea spread on Aquavit with mulled wine, hot cocoa, assortment of teas and coffee.

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom

We had a veranda port side which was nice but too cold to sit outside. Room itself in excellent condition with comfortable beds and heated bathroom floors. Modern but small.

Included excursion of city. Tour guide was nice and informative but not as much to see. Would consider another port.
