We thought the cruise was well done and have no complains.  We particularly liked the cruise director, Barbara.  We also thought all the local guides were good.  We did not particulate much in on board entertainment..

Except for the air conditioning in the dining room of the ship which, was terrible,, the trip was excellent. The staff on the ship was wonderful, especially Dean, Mario, and Radluka(I think).

Great First River Cruise by egw1

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The cruise gave you an excellent understanding of the history and culture of the Netherlands and Belgium. We are an active couple that enjoys walking and exploring on our own. This gives us comfort, the optional tours, and plenty of freedom to explore on our own at the same time.

Prague to Budapest review by CruiserCT

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our first cruise and we enjoyed it very much.  The scheduled events/tours were well thought out and planned.  Service provided by the staff/crew on the ship was exceptional.


We would have liked more free time as there were times when, after a scheduled tour, we were left with no more than an hour to explore a city on our own.


The bike tour in Vienna was a great option to see the city from a different perspective and should be offered in other cities if available.

Get the better room with picture windows. Go on the excursions. We thought every local guide was good.

Stay organized or the room will quickly become cluttered. We used packing cubes for our clothes and that helped us unpack quickly (put the cubes on the shelves and outer wear hanging in the closet). The quicker you get the suitcases empty and under the bed, the better. Also, don't stress too much about dressing for dinner - hubby put nice sweaters on and I would change shoes and or use a nice shawl or scarf. Some people changed before dinner nightly but we just dressed up on the night before the last - celebratory dinner. Otherwise, you bring way too many clothes.
