Sail Date: Oct 2019
Cabin: French Balcony

We chose this cruise because we had been planning a river cruise for a fews years. Every time we booked one, my husband had an illness (a stroke for one thing) that prevented us from taking the trip. Last August we thought we would give it one more chance and since the international airfare was free and the late fall trips were on sale, we booked it and we were finally able to take this wonderful trip.

We stayed two days ahead of the trip in Basel, Switzerland to get acclimated to the time change and had a delightful stay in this charming city. We were able to board at noon on our sailing day and for those boarding early, we were served a very delicious lunch.

Our cabin was quite comfortable with a king size bed, plenty of storage for luggage and clothes and while we did not have a balcony with seating, we had a floor to ceiling sliding window that we could open to look out. The ship itself was quite easy to navigate since it only has 4 levels, the top one being a walking deck and outdoor seating. There is an elevator between levels two and three. We were on the 3rd floor.

Cabin Review

French Balcony

Excellent. The beds are very comfortable. There is storage underneath the beds for all of your suitcases and plenty of closet space for all your clothes. The bathroom has heated floors and a great shower. The toiletries are of very high quality and the towels are changed out daily at your request. We loved that we could open up the floor to ceiling door. We were on the 3rd floor at the far end of the ship. A far walk for my husband, but he managed.
