I have been on several cruises (all big ships) but none can compare to this River Cruise. First off they took care of EVERYTHING...flights, transfers, tours, wonderful food, more information about what you were seeing and going to see and you were greeted everywhere you went. We felt like King and Queen for a week and the other passengers were very nice and easy to make acquaintance with. LOVED IT!!!! You can also bring on board your own liquor or wine and no cork fee. There was tons of things to do and options to choose from. Very personal and intimate.
