Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2017
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Standard Stateroom

This cruise was recommended by my travel consultant. Met all my expectations. What stood out was the friendliness and professionalism of all the staff, always with a smile on their faces and nothing was too much trouble. I had a bit of a medical problem while on board and they went to no end of trouble to help me get it sorted out.

There was a good choice of outings in each port, all included in the cost of the trip. There were a few special trips that you could pay extra to go on. Didn't really need to do these as the free ones were all excellent and catered for different fitness levels.

Food was excellent - plenty of variety and well-presented.

Drinks and coffee were always available at no extra charge. I enjoyed going to the Piano Bar each evening for the entertainment. Csabo (?) provided good music - easy to listen to and he would play requests when asked.

Great trip and I would recommend to anyone. Intend going on another of your cruises in the future.

Enjoyed this visit very much. Had an excellent guide who gave a very good unbiased description of Hitler's interest in the city and the Nuremburg trials after the war. I found it very interesting and learnt a lot.


Very pretty little town. We were fortunate that it was a religious holiday in Bamberg and there wqas a religious parade taking place which was very interesting to see. One of my favourite stops.


Didn't stand out as much as some of the others.


Went on a tour out of the city and a bit sorry that I didn't just stay in Frankfurt. Think there was plenty to do and see there without paying more to go somewhere else.
