Sail Date: Jul 2019
Cabin:

Embarkation went smoothly although we didn't embark from Basel but from Bruisach, and we had to wait at the airport a while because an abandoned piece of luggage caused the airport lock down.

The ship was spacious and airy, and the cabin comfortable with the balcony in use all the time, which made it seem even more spacious.

Dining was good. We always used the main dining area, and enjoyed the alternate menu option on a couple of occasions. The Table La Rive was exceptional and the Portabello restaurant was also good. We thought the chefs were exemplorary, working in such a small space, and we had never tasted lamb chops like it ever!

Cabin PA

The cabin met our needs well. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. There was adequate hanging space. We enjoyed the balcony for relaxation. The bathroom was good with a spacious shower, and we enjoyed the lighting show!

The Mercedes Benz tour was mind blowing.
