Very enjoyable

Sail Date: November 13, 2015

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Cabin: 112

We had done almost this exact itinerary during the summer and, having enjoyed our Christmas Market tour on the Rhine last year, we decided to try the Danube again.  Despite worries about possible terrorists, possible low rivers meaning buses, and a potential Lufthansa strike, we decided that we would do the tour anyway.  And we are glad we did.  The staff were very friendly and polite, the food was great and there was a nice atmosphere of friendliness on the boat.  The only disappointment was that we didn't have much time in Budapest as the boat sailed first thing in the morning when others went on their tour.  As we had done the tour last time, we had hoped to be able to visit the Christmas Markets that morning, however, we enjoyed our near-empty boat and the trip down the Danube to the bus pick-up spot.  All-in-all, I would recommend this tour to anyone - the Christmas markets in Nuremberg were very pretty and the whole trip got us into the holiday mode.

Cabin / Stateroom
Not the biggest cabin, but adequate. We were downstairs which meant we didn't have a big window, but as we spent most of our time upstairs in the lounge, it really wasn't an issue.

Onboard Activities
Not a lot to do on board except watch the German countryside go by, which was fine!
Entertainment
On board entertainment is not what you go on river cruises for. They had a couple of lectures and some enthusiastic musicians who came on board in the evening.
