    We enjoyed our trip very much. The rooms are clean and tidy. Food served was appreciated by all of us. Everyone is nice and helpful. Thanks for all the arrangement that we had a peaceful time onboard.

    With the price paid for this cruise, it should be ALL inclusive. The ship should have hand sanitizing stations. Entertainment after dinner needs to be a bit more entertaining. More history or description of the places we pass by would be appreciated. Optional excursions should be refundable when a passenger is unable to go.

    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.

    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 was enjoyable also despite that some of the crew members were novices and did not know how to provide the proper service. We are looking considering the Black Sea Cruises for 2019!
