Review summary

River cruising is totally different than ocean cruising. We are going back in 2019!


5 out of 5
embarking on a river cruise is so different than embarking on a large Ocean Cruise. You walk on and go right to your room

Food and Dining

Food is excellent! The cruise line always provided Regional items but for those that are not venturous always provided basic Staples such as steak and chicken.

Onboard Activities

The room was amazing! A little scary going through the locks because it can get quite dark.

Do not try to compare a river cruise with an ocean cruise. Totally different everything!
