The price and timing of this cruise was good for us. We were happy to get two reservations for the price of one getting free air fare to and from Europe. We enjoyed perfect weather in all the ports and felt the free excursions were of just the right length for us since we're seniors with some walking problems but were able to navigate all the excursions without difficulty. We can now say we definitely prefer river cruises to ocean cruises. Both have their advantages and disadvantages but the smaller size of this ship and the much smaller number of people aboard made it easy to make friends. We really liked visiting a new port every day and doing most of the travel by night. The one exception was entering into Budapest by night and being able to experience that exquisite city of lights at night - a real highlight of the trip.

A wonderful first river cruise after several ocean cruises.

Cabin Review

Cabin 101
The cabin was small but functional. We loved the location of it right next to the stairs as that made it easy for us to move up and down from the dining room or lounge to our cabin.
