This cruise was booked via the Telegraph and we had with us Kate Adie and Martin Bell.They helped make what was a very pleasurable,interesting and informative cruise.All the staff were excellent but I must pay tribute in particular to Sylvia our cruise director.She remained helpful,pleasant and totally unflapable in all circumstances.The shore excursions were interesting and we would definately go again.Our cabin was very comfortable and the public spaces on the ship were also very good.We had some decent wather and were able to make the most of the sun deck. We enjoyed all the excursions but my most memorable was Belgrade in Serbia,visiting the fort and seeing the amazing views over the River .The other one was a home meal with a local family.One of the family spoke excellent English and we got some real insights into what happened to people during the war.The same could be said of our Serbian guide in Belgrade who came to Serbia as a refugee fom Croatia. Kate got us all very interested in the English women who came to Serbia prior to the first world war to assist the Serbian people in a war.They are forgotten by the British but still remembered and honoured by the Serbian people.
