It was by far the most enjoyable and relaxing tour we have ever been on. Being on a ship with only 170 passengers was probably what made it special. The tour director, Gary was unbelievable. He was with us from when we embarked, he was with us on the tours, he briefed us every evening, he entertained us at night and he made what could have been a huge problem seem like a drop in the bucket. The highlight of the cruise was the three hours in the afternoon sailing slowly down the Rhine. With many castles on each side of the river, Gary explained what we were seeing and what was coming next. The included tours were very entertaining and kept us very busy. The food and service was terrific, as expected. It was nice not to have to sit at assigned seating, as we were able to meet so many more people. It was also nice not to have a dress-up night, as it meant easier packing for fifteen days.
Cabin was a little small, but we knew that when we purchased it. We still feel it was the best value.
