    Reviews About This Operator

    • December 05, 2019
      The ship was lovely and the food wonderful. The staff did an excellent job. We did what we set out to do--visit Christmas markets. It was lovely.

      Everything was wonderful! From the cabin Stewart to the waiters in the dinning room! Tours were exceptional! The tour director Robert kept everyone organized and entertained ! The sights were spectacular! Loved all of it! Florence Cross

      It exceeded my expectations. The cruise director was outstanding, both informative and entertaining. The food was also outstanding. Only negative was that the boat’s Internet was down for 2+ days
