This was our tenth cruise but first river cruise. This was far better than any cruise yet. It was so nice to have most services included in the costs. (excursions, air fare, drinks, wifi, water....) The ship was very new and it looked like it. The staff was very helpful. The food was excellent! Just a wonderful trip. We started in Budapest. We had a few nights in a Hotel and then a couple of days on the shop (in Port). So we saw a lot of the city. We could have easily spent a few more days there. The embarkation from Budapest was spectacular. The ship cruised up and down the Danube through the city several times. By the last time the sun had set and the town was completely lit up. It was beautiful. One of the best embarkations we're experienced. We've always dined with the same people for our entire cruise. We thought we would not like eating with different folks every night, but were surprised at how much we enjoyed the change.

Nearly all inclusive

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom
Cabin B 203
The cabin was a bit small but very efficiently designed. The King size bed was great! And we sat out on the balcony frequently. The (free) wifi was great, but the link went down a day or 2 at the end of the cruise.
