Review summary

Enjoyed the cruise and the 3 days in Prague before boarding the ship. The only criticism we have would be the size of our cabin. Would have upgraded if another cabin would have been available.

Children's Programs

Did not have children onboard. Not sure Children would enjoy the trip we were on. Would need to have a specialized program for children.

Ship Quality

The only problem with this ship was the size of cabins in the back of the ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

1 out of 5
Size was the only problem with our cabin. Due to lack of Cabinet top space in the bathroom I needed to put my makeup and other items on the toilet lid to use. (Disgusting) My Husband lived out of his suitcase under the bed all week due to lack of closet space. We both kept running into the Bed & Furnature when walking around the room. The room was miserable. The Room Stewards should be commended for their attention to detail in keeping the room clean.

Ship tip

Take care of the problem with room size.t There were 3 rooms smaller then our that could be renovated into

The airport was not ready for us so we stood in line for an half hour for the area to open. We do respect the ship need to have the passengers leave the ship to prepare for next group cruising.
