We chose this cruise because it offered everything we wanted to see and do that many of the other River Cruise operators miss out. It was truly 5 star service all the way. The ship was beautiful, cabin excellent (top deck) food delicious - and thank goodness we were not surrounded by an endless stream of food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner was all you needed but you only had to ask for anything in between and it was specially prepared - not something that had stood on a buffet for 24 hours! The shore excursions were excellent and well organised and we saw so many wonderful sights on our 15 day Rhine, Maine and Danube cruise not to mention the extra Scenic enrich excursions which were fabulous. Every member of staff was courteous, the Captain was visible and did a splendid job of negotiating the huge locks with hardly an inch to spare on either side, I held my breath at times, and the Cruise Director Adrian, did an amazing job of keeping all guests informed of what had gone on that day and what was to come the next day via his nightly 'Port talk. He was helpful, always visible and at times extremely funny. A great person to spend 15 days with. On board activities and entertainment was tasteful and varied. My husband and I were celebrating our Golden Wedding Anniversary and can honestly say we enjoyed every moment of our celebration. I was prompted to write this review 12 months after our trip, because I was reading some rather negative reviews of cruises taken later in the summer of 2018 (we travelled in May) - so many negative reviews because of the weather, well tough I say..... river cruises are always subject to the conditions of the river and one should be prepared to take this into account at the time of booking.

Unbelievably good
