I chose this cruise mostly because of the date and location placement as part of monthlong tour of European countries. It turned out to be one of the best parts of my journey!! I met so many interesting people, and saw so many beautiful castles and towns! The service was excellent and every staff member was friendly. I will mention Bogdan, Christian, and Norman as really outstanding. The activities director, Chris, was so much fun, he really did a great job. All in all, it was a wonderful experience. The food was quite good at every meal. In terms of the accommodations, as a solo traveler I chose the most basic stateroom. While on the small side, of course, it was very comfortable! I adored the heated floors in the bathroom! The excursions were quite good, and by the end I get as thoughI had seen a lot of the region. All in all, it was a wonderful experience!
