Review summary

This was my first river boat cruise and it exceeded my expectations. I think, waterways is a great value. All travel connections went smoothly. We loved the staff and made friends with them. Stephanie Peters was a wonderful, enthusiastic tour director. Elvis in the dining room was outstanding and Costa the waiter was the best
