The trip was amazing. The staff was the highlight! Very kind, efficient, knowledgeable, and fun. We traveled during the flooding of the Rhine and our cruise director Simona was stellar. She had to make three plans for each day to ensure there were plenty of backups during this terrible time for the people affected by the Rhine flooding. She kept guests informed of what was happening and what could happen. It was very appreciated! The included and optional excursions were fun and informative, with offered tours for gentle walkers. The staff on board were the best, clean rooms, fun activities, tasty drinks, and all the amazing food. There was always something to eat or drink! Chef Andre was great! We had special dietary restrictions (vegetarian/vegan) and he insured that there was always something to eat and never any cross contamination. For the amount of food we ate, not once did we get sick!

After a long day of walking ~ visit the lounge on the third floor back of the boat. They have vitamin and magnesium water to help with sore muscles!!
