Food aspires to be top notch, but doesn’t achieve it. Waiting staff, some very good others less so. My disappointment was the beds, uncomfortable and hard to get into and out of. No comfortable chair owing to limited space. Ship clean, efficient, and organised. Cruise manager very good at his job. Entertainment was by a talented chap named Randy, one man with a lot to do by himself, he did well. If I did another cruise I would make sure it had a proper double bed as without it, it would be a deal breaker. Personally I thought Budapest a little disappointing, though only being there one day is not sufficient to give proper opinion. I enjoyed being on the sun deck just cruising along the Danube river. The several locks were an experience. We also had the opportunity to make tea or coffee anytime in the lounge. Overall it was a pleasant holiday. Read Less

Wanting to visit cities on the Rhine that we had not been to before. Overall it was a good Cruise the Staff like on any Cruise are fantastic. The Ports of call were great & well organised. The food was OK my wife said the Fish dishes were good, my Meat dishes not so. We had been on this Ship 3 years ago & knew what to expect. The Boarding was smooth & we noticed that the lounge/Bar area had been updated. However the Cabins were the same sad rooms that we had left some 3 years ago. If you are short in height be prepared for marks in the back of your legs. The Bunk bed stile used has a wooden frame around the mattress, which is some way from the cabin floor, not making it too easy to get out of bed (in the night!!!). The cabins could do with updating as well as the carpets etc.which look tired now. That aside we enjoyed as always the company of the passengers on board. Do not join this ship if you are expecting entertainment, the lone Musician was poor but there again what do you expect!! It would have been good like lat time to have imported local Musicians from the last port of call. All in all a good Cruise but will not be using this ship again until it uses double beds which I don't think will be some time soon. Read Less

This Cruise, our first, was booked over the occasion of my 70th birthday, Always an ambition of mine to cruise the Rhine and I was not disappointed. The crew from the Captain downwards were very friendly and efficient, I can give an accolade to the executive chef Clinton James for his fabulous food and its presentation. The ship was a delight to sail on despite all the troubles of the River Cruise line prior to departure. I would have no hesitation in giving my recommendation for this cruise and just as an aside am going to book the same ship next year on the Danube. We sailed from Koblenz to Basle through some beautiful scenery and fortunately had little or no rain over the week. The Cruise director was knowledgeable and approachable as were the cabin staff and crew. We were joined on the cruise by two celebrities who gave us excellent entertainment and the benefit of their individual knowledge of specialised subjects. David Harper on antiques and Lesley Waters on cooking/baking. The shore excursions were pricey but value for money I was absolutely astounded by the visit to the music museum, not to be missed by any traveller. The Rhine falls, not up to Lake Victoria standard nonetheless impressive and Lake Tittisee also not to be missed. Our resident driver was English and the coach (right hand drive) was roomy and comfortable. Overall I have to award the experience five stars Read Less
