The trip was FABULOUS. The Monarch Empress itself, the complete staff, the food, and the tour people were all EXCELLENT. Everyone on board (it was a wonderful group of travelers) agreed that Gate 1, and this cruise boat was the equal, if not better, than any other on the river. The whole crew could not have been more pleasant, more efficient and more accommodating. It was a fun-filled and most enjoyable vacation. Cabin was comfy, roomy, modern and spotless. The itinerary was filled with beautiful and interesting cities along the route. Only minor squawks mentioned by others on the boat were that the food choices lacked more salmon, and that the fish choices were mostly fried. My wife and I loved the food and the whole dining room staff. Kudos to Gate 1, and their cruise director Krisztina, all of the tour people, and all of the Monarch Empress staff on board. Read Less
