Review summary

The ship was beautiful, the staff was extremely friendly, courteous and proficient, the food excellent, the chefs more than happy to make a special meal without onions just for me and the sites while cruising truly amazing. The excursions where interesting and enjoyable, but rather monotonous after the 7th day. Too many churches, castles and same repetitive history facts.  Wish we would have had a lot more "free" time exploring the cities themselves. Needed at least 2 days in certain cities like beautiful Vienna.  To us, the 2 hours touring the windmills in Kinderdijk was just a waste of our time. We never even had the opportunity to see the actual city.
