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

Cruise recommended by Dubbo Travel Agent.


Stopped in Lucerne for couple of days. Jung Frau is great excursion. Top of Europe

We are 50 and not sure of age group. People of all ages and great people.

Cruise, Excursions, Staff sensational

Highlights were Castles, all organised Excusions, Staff, in addition quick Hooray to Sylvia, Jose, Szandra and Rik Sensational people.

Met some great people cruising from South Africa, Britain, Bahamas, Aussies etc.

Seriously had a ball, great time and cant wait to do another river cruise.

The staff are fantastic, all inclusive so no more to pay

The Castles on the Rhine, i dressed up in the lederhosen for the castles section (bratwurst and beers on top deck) and all the staff and patrons loved it, made the day.

All stops, Strasborg, Black Forest, Rudeshiem, Boppard, Koblenz, Colongne all great.

Bike ride from Boppard to Koblenz unreal, plenty of exercise if you want, 7k walk from Rudeshiem, walking through towns

Seriously, it is like 1 on 1, staff look after you.

The 8 days went like that,

To finish off a couple of days in Amsterdam. Windmills, Clogs, Cheese, life in Holland (insane) could not be better,

Best 2 weeks ever

Dave from Geurie (AUS)
