Outstanding Cruise Company that needs Germ Control for Passengers

Our friends chose this cruise and asked us to join them. We did this exact same cruise with Scenic 2 years ago. The cruise is amazing starting on the Danube and finishing on the Rhine. The scenery is spectacular. ...

Budapest to Amsterdam Riverboat Cruise with Scenic

We chose Scenic because of its reputation and that it was Australian. The guests were a mixture of Aussies (100), Canadians (40) Brits (10) ands two US couples. So, it was mostly a nice "Commonwealth" group. ...
