Additional details

Sail Date: May 2024

We joined our ship in Amsterdam. We booked balcony suite so that we’d enjoy the scenery on the Rhine. After 3 days we were advised that we would stay in Mannheim as the river levels were too high to continue to sail safely. Our docking location was a scruffy car park and was worse due to another cruise ship being tied up alongside .

Pluses: food (good but small measures for food and especially drinks), cleanliness and service;

Negatives: long coach trips; no views of the Rhine; entertainment on board was average; cruise director was not in control, promising us an option to leave ship a day earlier then informing us option was withdrawn at 07.30, 30 mins before we were due to leave having packed the previous night; an error with coach excursion resulted in our missing Captain’s cocktail event; delay in information; captain conspicuous by his absence.
