    The staff was friendly and the service was really good. The excursions were all worth visiting. I enjoyed the stay in Amadeus Brilliant. In addition, Tourradar was reliable. It gave me prompt assistance wherever I asked a question or requested help.

    The itinerary was great. WE loved Budapest, and Vienna especially. Magdalena the ship's cruise director talked about the tours the day before so we knew what to expect. There was lots of food. The desserts were 5 star!. All staff friendly, amazing.

    Overall, it was enjoyable. Room was clean and while not spacious, was just enough space. Meals were quite large and very tasty. The excursions were sometimes a bit long but maybe I noticed more due to the heat. All the staff were pleasant and helpful.
