My wife and I have been on 15 prior ocean cruises, and had not tried a river cruise until this on. I would certainly go on one again. The Panorama Suite was just as advertised. The sliding door opened completely, turning the cabin into a balcony, with the bed facing the river. It was spacious enough, and the bathroom was clean and attractive as well, with upscale soaps and shampoos adding to the luxury. The food was very good. I would like to have seen more local specialties along the way for more variety. But the quality of the cuisine was fine. We were very happy with the included shore walking tours/excursions. The towns along the way were very quaint and interesting. We also visited a castle or two. The scenery from the sky deck was certainly more picturesque that anything we would see on an ocean liner, especially on the Moselle as it joins up with the Rhine. Beautiful scenery, with many more castles along the way. Also, the staff knocked themselves out to make everyone comfortable. The entertainment was not much, but we did not expect too much from that. It was fine and met our expectations.

Wonderful experience
