We wanted to experience a river cruise and introduce our adult children and their spouses to the same. The vessel was excellent as was the service and the itinerary. The food was fabulous and the nightly entertainment was pleasant and a great environment to socialize. English language skills for the entire crew was excellent and they were all very personable.
Our only minor complaint was the cabin was a bit noisy with significant vibration when the ship was underway. We had the Explorer Suite at the aft of the boat which was situated directly over the engines.
Some of the excursions were a bit weak but overall quite good. The crew was very accomodating to our need to minimize a lot of steps and stairs when going on excursions and helped us avoid a couple of long walks from the ship to the excursion bus.
We had one of the 2 Explorer Suites which are on the aft of the boat. While it was spacious and well equipped it was noisy with significant vibration when the ship was underway. Since the ship sailed primarily at night it was sometimes disruptive to our sleep.
