Sail Date: May 2019

This was our 3rd river cruise, the first and last on Grand Circle, The river boat is in desperate need of a makeover, cabin decor is worn looking at best. Mattress was in need of replacement. Disappointing that we rarely docked close enough to a town to walk on our own. This was a 14 day trip from Basel, Switzerland to Antwerp, Belgium. For the money we could have gone on a better river boat company. Grand Circle lowered the price $4,000 per couple a few weeks after we paid in full. They would not adjust our price. We were given misinformation when booking about all on board gratitudes were included, this was not the case. Also misinformation on how much extra premium economy air was. Each port we got a short walking tour. Optional tours such as a Marksburg Castle should have been included in the price. Optional tour to Luxembourg wasn’t worth the money. Had a short visit there, lunch, over 90 minutes were spent at the American Cemetery. Followed by a visit to the German Cemetery. Program Directors were average. Food was average, limited choices. Some of the entertainment brought on board was good. This was our 16 trip to Europe, if you are ok with bare bones accommodations Grand Circle will work for you.

Cabin Review

Cabin Windows

Twin beds come down from the wall. Mattress was worn out, very uncomfortable. Cabin is in desperate need of a make over. Cabin is functional for storage space.
