Review summary

I would highly recommend this boat, and this tour. The ports were just gorgeous. There was always something to do, and for us the food was amazing. The dinners with their selection of food and wines and the presentations of the food is what you find in a fine dining establishment.

For some of the ports, they brought on onboard local talent to perform in the evenings. They also had special exclusive events at ports, just for the 150 people on our boat.

The ship is a beautiful well laid, new boat (I believe 2015)

Cabin / Stateroom

All the cabins are small, but beautifully appointed. The beds and linens are to die for. They are so comfortable. The french balcony gives you an entire glass wall as you look out.

Ship tip

For those who have not done a river cruise, I'd say to pack lite. There's no need for fancy clothing. Smart casual at dinner was as dressy as it got. Also there are free washer/dryers on board as needed. For our 10 day trip, we met several couples who did not check in baggage. They just used carry on luggage.

Vienna is gorgeous. Our only problem is the we had 1 full day there, and it just wasn't enough. However, if I told we had 2 days there, I'd still probably say it wasn't enough. It's a huge beautiful, clean, safe place to visit.

This city id just amazing and magical. I could have spent many more days here. The food is good, and very reasonably priced, if not cheap.
