Local radio station sponsor for our group from Buffalo, NY - sounded like a great itinerary. Chance to visit multiple countries, with interesting side excursions. Most guides were very good. One suggestion - on our previous river cruises (different company, sorry!), we always had a "gentle walking" tour option which was great. My husband uses a walker and quite frankly, the majority of people on this cruise were 65 ++. Some of the guides just kind of took off, leaving people to try to catch up. A slower paced option would be nice. Very pleased with onboard entertainment - your on board entertainers were so cute and talented, also enjoyed the extra entertainers (Scottish singer and the magician). We especially enjoyed the enrichment lectures. These really enhanced the time at sea and we also enjoyed having access on tv if we could not attend in person. The mix of NASA scientist, wildlife expert and historical expert was great. The planetarium was an unexpected delight. Lots of lovely areas to relax throughout the ship. Enjoyed the slightly smaller size ship - we don't need casinos or rock climbing walls!!! Restaurants were good, with plenty of variety. The Chef's table was a great alternative. Staff throughout the ship was very helpful and friendly and our room attendants, Ni and Josef were superb.
