River Beatrice
7 Night Danube Holiday Markets Westbound (Budapest To Passau)
Sail Date: July 17, 2016
Ship: River Beatrice
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 332
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

The ports of call were fabulous.  The crew was professional, and provided extraordinary service from start to finish.  The food preparation, presentation, and quality was exceptional.  The private Mozart and Strauss concert in Vienna was so good that it was pretty much a spiritual experience for anyone who enjoys classical music (like me).  Every shore excursion had wonderful, well-informed guides, who made the experience in each port informative and fun.  I'm not sure how much better this experience could have been.

The daily onboard entertainment was okay, but not exceptional. The entertainment ashore was exceptional. We also had some entertainment onboard that came in for individual performances, and those acts were extremely good.

Fairly close quarters, but everything was functional and worked well. The bed was very comfortable.

Ship Tip

We rarely felt the ship the moving. Motion sickness was not a concern.
