Review summary

This cruise was our 1st river cruise, and we are planning on doing another river cruise in the next 5 years . We have a 13 day ocean cruise coming up in 48 days . And even if we will have fun. This river cruise has spoiled me.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
It was small, but still comfortable for the 2 of us. We had fixed windows just above the water level. And since we only were in the cabin to sleep , dress, and clean up. We loved it.

Ship tip

This is a new ship and everything is shiny and sparkling. If you choose this ship. You won't ever be sorry.

Ports of call

Vilshofen, Germany

This was our first port. After an early lunch . We walked around town on our own. We checked into small shops and enjoyed walking on the cobblestones streets. Then the next day we did the ciry walking tour. It is a quaint town and found many nice people ❤

Passau, Germany

Vienna, Austria

Budapest, Hungary

5 out of 5
Having a Hungarian grandmother. This town was so special time. The great market was amazing. You have to try all the foods they serve on the 2nd floor of the market. I brought home plenty of paprika.
