the really no downsides to anything on this cruise. Food, service and planning were first rate. This is a serious contender for a Rhine river cruise- I would certainly take a hard look at Crystal vs Viking et al.
embarcation was 5 minutes with the iPads that they use and we were in the room in 10 minutes
Food was outstanding in every way. There was a set menu with 2 or 3 choices along with suggested regional favorites. One poster said that they didn't follow dietary requests. The ship could probably do a few things but hard core gluten free, reduced salt etc users should look elsewhere - the same as any cruise ship (or restaurant) It isn't a personal chef. Breakfast was good with enough choices as well as lunch. There was a Bistro setup throughout the day for snacks. This isn't a ocean cruise ship with 15 stations set up with every conceivable meal all day - Indian, chinese, sandwiches etc.
well appointed with literally brand new everything. Smaller vanity (but with enough storage). Shower was bigger than normal cruise ship size - appreciated
there was enough storage for clothes. There is a great self service laundry available that allows you to do the everyday stuff
