River cruise is a relaxing way to travel

Sail Date: August 15, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Cabin: 341

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.

Cabin / Stateroom
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.

Food and Dining
Budapest, Hungary
Seems like a filler stop on the river to Vienna
Vienna, Austria
Krems, Austria
Passau, Germany
Regensburg, Germany
Best small town of the trip. Eat the sausages at the stone bridge. Get the potato salad....
Main/Danube Canal Transit
Lots of locks and little change of scenery.
Nuremberg, Germany
Not enough time in this city. Did not take the WWII tour but you can spend two days easily here.


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.
