River Countess Cruise Review by Garwein

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2017
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Stateroom with French Balcony

Was billed as a 7 day river cruise, but we really did not much cruising. 5 of the 7 nights we were docked at the cruise port in Venice. From the ship there several shore excursions offered in Venice, all of which were excellent, with excellent guides. The ship itself was elegant and always very clean. Our cabin was in a good location, just a few steps from the dining room. The bed was probably the most comfortable one we have ever slept in away from home. The food in the dining was OK, but dinners were very disappointing. Breakfast and lunch were satisfactory, although the lunch selections could have had an egg salad or tuna salad offering. Most entrees were overcooked. Simple things like chocolate and oatmeal raisin cookies would have been nice at lunch.The crew was friendly and accommodating, in particular the hotel manager and the cruise director.

Cabin 1 414

Cabin was decent sized. Closets were ample for the average traveler. The bathroom was adequate and there was ample hot water.
