The included excursions were pretty good for the most part.  The guides were kind of hit or miss and having a good one made all the difference.  Do a lot of research on your own on each destination before you go and have a game plan.  Use the underground in the big cities.  Cheap, clean and safe.  If the included excursion sounds like a clunker... take off on your own.

Plenty of room and great service.. Excellent view off the back of the boat. Pretty noisy outside when the props are making revolutions... Excellent for enjoying a cocktail at sunset.

Ship Tip

If you want a little quiet time at dinner, dine topside at the Aquavit. The servers will try to get you the main menu items if you want them.

Seems like a filler stop on the river to Vienna

Best small town of the trip. Eat the sausages at the stone bridge. Get the potato salad....

Lots of locks and little change of scenery.

Not enough time in this city. Did not take the WWII tour but you can spend two days easily here.
