We arrived very early and were met at the airport by the cruise ship company and they took us to the ship so we could leave our luggage. Spent the day in Amsterdam on our own before boarding the ship. Very beautiful city! The ship was just the right size as was our stateroom. We loved the wall to ceiling sliding glass doors. The breakfast and lunch buffets had delicious choices of food and the evening sit down meals were beautifully presented and delicious. We participated in many of the excursions and felt like we learned a lot along the way. Lots of history and beauty. We really enjoyed the Local food walk excursion in Amsterdam; the day of just sailing so we could just sit and relax and enjoy the view of all the castles; and the visit to the Black Forest and the cuckoo clock shop! We enjoyed Happy hour on the ship every evening and found it was a great way to visit with others and share our days adventur! The size of the ship was very nice, never felt like there were too many people. The entire staff was friendly and very helpful with anything we needed. It was our first river cruise and we were very pleased.

Beautiful and relaxing cruise

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom with French Balcony
Cabin P 321
It was a nice size cabin for two! Large closet and all of storage space. Our luggage easily slid under the bed to be out of our way. The bathroom was a very nice size with a walk-in shower. The housekeeping staff did a very nice job of cleaning everyday. There was a refrigerator stocked with a mini bar, (you had to pay if you took anything) but that was nice. Our bed was very comfortable.
