Chose Romantic Danube to celebrate wedding anniversary and birthday. We probably over-planned optional excursions because we didn't have enough down time to enjoy sitting! Crew was exceptionally helpful, friendly and remembered our names. We had some problems of our own making (losing a cell phone for example) that the crew responded to immediately and successfully. Food exceeded our expectations. Tour Director Bennie was always there to help, always smiling and cheerful and efficient. Cabin crew Dominick was also extremely helpful and went out of his way to be sure our Explorer experience was memorable. Darwin always helpful, responsive and funny. Local guides on included excursions were excellent. Only disappointment was the Weltenburg Abbey and Danube Narrows. Boat trip was crowded and not much descriptions of what we were seeing. Same for Abbey - guide didn't see well-prepared. On the other hand, two guides stood out as exceptional - Emanuel in Vienna and Fanni in Budapest.

Cabin Review

Explorer cabin wonderful; low water level resulted in unexpected vibrations and noise, but could not be helped.
