Reall great ... but no AC!

The staff were truly excellent. But the big let down was that the air conditioning wasn't working and even they said it was fixed a few days later it really still wasn't. So think again if you're going to book this ship over the warm months. We were fortunate that most mornings and evening were cool, even cold and so didn't suffer from the lack of AC. I do remember one stifling night in the dining ...

Would never do a TUI river cruise again

Not sure where to start. Bags not taken to cabin, had to get them ourselves after a considerable time on boat. The weather turned hot so they put the air conditioning on. It was so cold in the main bar where the entertainment was in the evening that everyone was sitting with coats on. When we boarded the ladies toilet by the main bar was out of commission and remained so until the twelfth day of ...

Decent cruise for a good price

Just returned from the treasures of the Danube cruise and despite some rain and a missed destination it's been a good week. Tui flights out from Manchester a little delayed due to waiting for a lost passenger, pick up at Budapest was excellent, easy walk to buses then onto the boat. Lunch underway and a wait until 15.00 before cabin ready. We had 313 a french balcony suite, good size, loads of ...

We got an excellent last minute deal to go on a Rhine river cruise from Basel to Amsterdam. Since we had done an east Danube cruise on TUI Skyla in the previous year and had a great time, we decided to book this one straight away. We flew from London Heathrow to Basel early morning via British Airways. Flight was fine and we got to Basel about 15 minutes behind schedule due to a delayed ...

Food too basic and some organisational issues

2-5 Cruises • Age 50s

We had a great itinerary on the Rhine explorer cruise, although we did miss most of Amsterdam due to a move to Zaandam and no shuttle bus provided. The boat itself was nicely decorated as were the cabins. Bar and entertainment staff were great. However, the food was a major disappointment. It was basic, not always well cooked and lacked variety. It was also poorly organised. If you like your food ...

We had not been away for Christmas for a few years, so as we had the opportunity this year we thought to try a river cruise. After some 29 ocean cruise this was going to be different. Tui are obviously intent on disrupting the European river cruise market. They are supplying excellent quality iin accommodation, food and particularly customer service on board. Just like their Marella ships, the ...

We chose the River cruise because it only had 158 passengers and the flights were included and was much more affordable overall compared to the other River cruise lines. On arrival at Budapest airport we were held up in immigration for an hour but the rep was waiting for us when we got through, we were the last to show up and everyone was waiting on the bus for us. It was a huge relief. The ...

TUI Maya Germany river Main. This is the third TUI river cruise I have done, the last two in 2022 both on TUI Isla and German rivers again. I would not recommend the river Main, certainly not in summer. There are many, many bridges and all very low to the water so we could spend almost no time cruising whilst on the upper deck. This said, the towns we visited were very nice and ...

We've done river cruises in the past on the Nile (in Egypt) and on Yangtze (in China) however never got the chance to do one in Europe due to the extortionate prices charged by Viking and other river cruiselines although I had always hoped to do one day if a good deal came along. Well, we got a good deal on TUI Skyla. The itinerary was interesting sailing from Budapest to couple of Hungarian ...

We booked this cruise for the itinerary more than anything else. We’ve done river cruises before and was interested to learn how TUI, a river cruise newcomer would compare to the more established river cruise companies. The answer is “very well actually”. The ship, the TUI Maya is not new, but was refurbished in, I think, 2020 and I can report, to a very high standard. The public rooms are well ...
