We spent a considerable length of time reviewing various cruise line offerings including Holland Line, the River Ships and other similar offers. We found that Carnival gave us the most places at the best cost. Wee tried to take excursions in every port and found that the tour descriptions were well written and accurate. The food on board was excellent and my wife , who is gluten intolerant, was accommodated nicely. The staff was the best .
