Review summary

At the top of the list of complements Wong be the Eigl crew and staff.  From the always cheerful Captain, to the seriously committed Tour Director and the Wait and Housekeeping staff,  everyone bent over backwards to make our "visit" both comfortable and thoroughly informative.


Accommodations on the Eigl were excellent.  For example, and oddly, the bathroom in our cabin, though a bit smaller than the one at the Corinthia Hotel in Prague, actually was considerably easier to navigate, with more shelving for toiletries, and a more logically designed shower.  


The "wall of glass" leading out to the private porch just added to the pleasure.


You've got to ride this boat!!

Ship tip

Try not to miss any of the various presentations made by the Tour Director. All were both highly informative and, frequently, quite amusing!
