Four ladies who enjoy traveling together took this first-time river cruise. It was even more than we’d hoped for. I was amazed at the friendliness of the staff - from the cruise director to the room attendants to the dining room personnel. Very personalized treatment. On the second day, one of our group had a birthday; the birthday dessert was brought directly to our table, they sang to her, etc. Without assigned seating - without name tags- impressive!
The dining experience was a treat every day - from regional specialties or another vast variety of choices at each meal.
The shore excursions were very well organized and the choices were many. There never was any trouble with finding the right group or bus. The method for daily disembarking and embarking was simple and orderly - and smart! The information given about each port was helpful and interesting.
The room was great - the space was used to the maximum. Although we had to tiptoe around the end of the beds, it was enough room. The beds were comfortable and I especially like being able to control the room lights from the bed. We enjoyed being able to sit on the veranda both while in port and especially when on the Danube. The bathroom had a great shower and plenty of space to put our toiletries. The cabin was so well taken care of by our steward- he was so friendly and helpful
Great local guide and enough free time to go where I wished
