Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: Europe River

Had a lot of friends who love the river cruise experience and thought we would give it a try.

Service was very good. The staff works extremely hard to make the guests have a wonderful experience. If you like structure and and a clean well run experience this is it.

Very little hassle with transportation, travel, transfers etc.

The cabin was very nice. Excellent bed, bath and staff. Good Storage and everything you need. You would not need a cabin upgrade to have a great trip. There are great viewing spots from lounges, decks , dining room and other spaces. Ship is small and it easy to find a spot to enjoy the views other that from the room.

The included shore excursions were OK but not a highlight. Some of the guides were good and made the trip interesting but we had several that were boring and not worth the time.

The cruise director and cruise line did not do a very good job of explaining other options that are in port. Very little information on shopping areas, and other attractions. Do your homework before you go so that you won't miss what you want to see.

The tours had a great emphasis on history and rulers. There was a lot of repeated information from one tour to the next.

Easy way to see Europe. Yes the ship docks within walking distance of most towns. Easy.

There is a lot of walking to really enjoy the towns and cities we visited.

Old Town Tour

Good guide on this tour. But town is easy to explore on you own.

Good guide with walking tour of historic area. Was discouraged from walking to Castle. Should have made a better effort to took a cab to the top.

Good street scenes and places to eat and drink.

City Tour

Good overview. A lot to see. Do your homework on what to visit.

The city market is worth the visit.

Very Busy
