The best part of this cruise was the ship's staff and, in particular, the Program Director. He, Joey, could have been a successful stand-up comedian, but was also a very effective organizer and overall coordinator of activities -- even when unexpected problems (weather, ground transportation) threatened.
The food and drinks were very good despite lacking the variety (or quantity) of an ocean cruise. The staterooms (ours was a balcony stateroom on the upper deck) were rather cozy, but very clean; the room stewards very attentive.
One concern was what appeared to be a somewhat lax approach to security when the ship was docked at very accessible dock locations.
Bottom line - beautiful historic cities visited, magnificent scenery and sites along the Rhine River, and a terrific, friendly, ship's staff made this a memorable, enjoyable experience.
The crew on the Modi was very good. The program director was excellent and even made the trip more enjoyable. The food was very good and the stateroom was very good. We had a balcony but we were so busy we only sat outside a few times. Good local entertainment on board and the meals were above average. They included beer and wine at lunch and dinner. The dining staff was very friendly.Traveling the Danube was just beautiful. And the you saw one Castle after another going through Germany.

Don't bring a ton of clothing, or any dressy, semi-formal clothing. Your days will be filled with walking (on cobble stone streets), your evenings will be very casual and low-key. Storage is very limited in the cozy staterooms, so just bring the essentials. Practical, comfortable shoes are essential
Try and get to the 9:00 entertainment a little early to get a better seat but there were always seats available.
