Leila "We were 4 senior ladies and were given roooms on the lower deck because there were no vacancies in the upper deck. We were the only guests there. We were bothered by crew members always in the corridor and by the noises that came from the nearby utility room. However, the ship was not fully occupied, only 110 passengers and many rooms were vacant in the two upper decks. Besides that the cruise ..."

    Wonderful trip packed full of many beautiful villages and towns. Only complaint is it was difficult finding the boat in Basel because of 4 different pontoons and no indication as to which one.
