The whole experience from booking to returning to Heathrow afterwards was really well organised and enjoyable.
The cabin was spacious enough for two, with floor to ceiling sliding glass doors. Fine for watching the scenery slip by when the Sun Deck got too hot. The shower provided plenty of hot water, a definite plus.
The food was of premium quality and the staff all friendly and helpful.
Maps were provided of each destination town/city and the crew were knowledgeable about each one.
The itinerary was interesting with plenty to see, although we did not book any shore tours. In Strasbourg, where the boat docked a little way from the cathedral and other points of interest, a shuttle bus was provided.
We booked late and the cabin was at the rear and, although on the top accommodation deck, was a little noisy from the engines, when we sailed during the night. However, we got used to this after a couple of nights.
We would definitely recommend a Fred Olsen river cruise as we thought it excellent value for money.
