This was a very good value vacation with hotel nights in Budapest and Prague included , full breakfasts and tours in those cities. The ship was lovely as was our cabin. The meals were delicious and beautifully presented. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The mood was relaxed and straightforward. Maps of each destination and daily agendas in each cabin along with a daily cruise talk from our cruise director enhanced our experience also. Every tour was well organized and on time without a hitch. Very professional, extremely memorable. Learning about Austrian wines and German beer and sausages was fun. The concert in Vienna was excellent,not to be missed. The Hungarian evening tour was fun as was the Czeck folklore dinner . On the last night the concert in Prague was also very enjoyable. There was lots of free time allotted if you chose to do your own thing in the stops along the way. Fall is a beautiful time along the Danube. The leaves were bright red yellow and orange which added exceptional beauty to the scenery.

Met All of My Expectations

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


The. vista has a lovely lounge at the back where one can relax and read, play cards or games and stop by any time for complimentary beverages including specialty coffees. Most enjoyable and great views.

Just up the stairs from there you are one the sun deck, large and well designed for beautiful daytime viewing and wonderful sunsets.

Everyone was casual and relaxed on this vacation. Everyday there is a happy hour in the main lounge and in the evening, late night snacks.

Such a great overall experience for this cruise with age group between 55 and 75.
