We wanted a “get away from it all” break so chose a quiet river cruise. The ship cabin and staff were all excellent. The organisation by Tauck is first rate. Yes it is expensive but you are taken care of from the moment you land to the moment you depart.
We chose the ship because it had a second dining venue. That’s available all the time except the one really formal evening. Basic choices but nice to have a choice of venue.
The alcohol is all in. So if you want to drink champagne for the whole week you can. The beer liquor and wine choices were all good but not exceptional. Glenlivet 12 yo was the best scotch.
The clientele was 99% older well travelled Americans.
We did some of the daily tours but some days just did our own thing. The tours were all well organised.
I would highly recommend but just warn that if you are under 50 and not American you will stand out.
Nice layout. French balcony. Great shower but no bath. Beautiful bedding.
