We chose this cruise specifically for traveling through Germany, our favorite food stop was Cologne, great sidewalk restaurants and cold beer, plenty to see very close to where the boat docked. The food quality and choices were beyond what we expected. The rooms were very nice and accommodating. Particularly enjoyed being able to open up the sliding doors and take in the view while sailing. A wide range of excursions were offered and the ones we participated in were very well orchestrated with knowledgable guides. Each one also had free time for exploring and shopping. My wife and I tried to come up with the worst thing on the trip and we both came up with nothing. 1st class crew and ship. Everyone on the crew was extremely gracious and helpful. Some going out of their way to provide a fun environment full of good times and smiles. We will remember this trip forever!
