This was a first time experience doing a river cruise,normally we do the big ships.so off we set.arrived in Amsterdam after a bit of fun trying to find the agent from the ship we all get on the couch ,arrived at the port,ship looked magnificent,so easy to get on Sky,refreshing drink and towel was presented,nice touch.We were in our cabin within 15 minutes and luggage almost behind us,that's impressive. Unpacked ,plenty of space for all the clothes and shoes do look in the bathroom there's 2 hidden cupboards behind the mirror smart.Then it was time to explore what we saw was a clean tidy ship,staff very very friendly always asking if every thing was ok or order a drink.We opted for the premium drinks package very nice.The only real big let down was the food ,I'm not a fussy eater at breakfast bacon burnt ,a fairly good selection,but boring,lunch some food tepid again boring.dinner ,what planet did that chef come from.some weird and wonderful mixtures he produced.The entertainment was ok,nothing to write home about.excursions superb there was 2 types fast pace or meander speed,we did both meander was perfect,a nice steady pace ,saw a lot of things,really good.Would we go again,yes,I think next time Portugal.

Cabin Review

Cabin 236
The cabin very nice,clean and fresh,not keen on the slide down windows.On the second day we had to change our cabin because engine fumes were coming into the cabin via the vent they sorted that out straight away and moved to cabin 212 c,Again no fuss they just got on and did it.
