Cabin: French Balcony

I’ve wanted to experience a river cruise for quite a while! The crew & staff were outstanding, the food was exquisite & the cooks were very accommodating for my dietary needs! The shore experiences along the Rhine were marvelous! I so enjoyed the walks through the towns along the Rhine! The town folk were friendly & very accommodating! There were more activities than could be done in one journey so there is incentive to return for even more adventures! The rooms are very comfortable with heated floors in the bath! There was plenty of room under the bed for luggage & generous drawer & closet space for our clothes! Buses took us to & from our adventures off the ship, & knowledgeable guides gave us tours of each site we visited, but when the tour guide finished there was time for walking & enjoying the sites, shops, restaurants & museums like the Chocolate Museum in Cologne! The small shops were so special as well as the larger shops! The experience will stay with me forever!

Cabin Review

French Balcony

Very comfortable room with plenty of space for our clothes! There was plenty of room underneath the beds for suitcases. I loved the heated bathroom floors & the sliding door window. What a grand view from those doors!

Port Reviews


No time to experience Basel. We went straight to the ship from the airport.


Beautiful, well preserved, well presented & rich with history!


Loved visiting the clock makers, the glass artists & the walk in the Black Forest to the waterfall!


Loved the shops, the hike & the Black Forest Cake demonstration!


Breath-taking Cathedral with stunning stained glass windows!


The little Mom & Pop shops are awesome, especially the handmade crafts & specialty foods!


Nothing like trip to chocolate shops & The Chocolate Museum! I was impressed by the historical artifacts displayed on each floor!


I walked the old town & the mile long shopping area! What a joyful experience!


My tour of the windmills was in Kinderdyke I throughly enjoyed the day there!
