Review summary

We had an amazing time. It was our first river cruise. We have been on many ocean cruises and I was worried that my husband would get bored on the ship with not a lot going on. It wasn't the case. We met some great people and enjoyed visiting with them and of course him bringing his cigars with him helped also. We would definitely consider another river cruise.

Food and Dining

The food was so good with choices every night from local areas. We tried something new each night and weren't disappointed.

Onboard Activities

3 out of 5
Not a lot to do on the boat but you get off every day, sometimes twice a day. It also left you time to get to know your fellow travelers.
