Our ship was changed from Ruby to Jade - same layout, same design, same cabin. The cabin was spacious enough. Lots of storage. Having the balcony window move up and down allowed for fresh air and picture taking. Found the wine selection wanting. Not terribly impressed with the meals. One that stood out: the herb encrusted lamb was delicious. Ordering off the breakfast and lunch menus took quite a while. Mixed messages from servers: 'no hamburger at lunch only at dinner'; another would say 'any time'. The burgers were very good. Most passengers used the buffet for breakfast and lunch. Shore excursions were well presented and executed. What a variety! Going through all the locks from Budapest to Amsterdam was fascinating and interesting at the same time. Some were narrower than others and consequently the ship bumped against the sides - what a way to wake up in the wee hours of the morning!
