Sail Date: Sep 2018
Cabin:

Done a lot of Ocean Cruising but never a River Cruise. This one coincided with our timetable. The Itinerary - Rhine and Moselle attracted us and the reality met our hopes. The stops chosen were good. Perhaps a little longer in one or two of them would have been nice. Obviously smaller than a Cruise ship but for its size was spacious and well laid out with nice lounges. Our Cabin was on the second floor and of a decent size with a french window. Very good wardrobe space considering. Good size bathroom/shower room.

Nice dining room. Particularly liked the sit anywhere policy. We like the varied menu and the food was very good at all meals. Bar area and lounge was large with good all round vision. Unfortunately the weather didn't let us use the sundeck as much as we would have liked. Lovely smaller lounge at the rear of the boat with all day hot drinks and cookies available. After experiencing Cruise ships didn't expect too much in the way of entertainment. Very pleasantly surprised. Definitely knew the audience they were aiming at. The overall service in all areas of the boat gets full marks from us.

We only did a couple of city tours and both of the were good.

As expected smaller than Ship but more than adequate,. Surprisingly good cupboard space.

Clean comfortable with nice french window.
