    This simply has to be the most relaxing and enjoyable way to see Europe from its magnificent waterways. First class accommodation, food and service. No packing and unpacking. A wonderful experience of a lifetime, all round. Just do it - the memories will last forever.

    We loved every minute of our cruise. Ship was wonderful, crew were exceptional, food was scrumptious and the Ports and Tours and all the inclusions made it more than worth the money.

They didn't really offer wine or beer at lunch but you could get it if you asked for it. I loved the fact that there were only 120 people on board and we got to know everyone. It is so much better than a huge cruise ship. The guides in port were excellent and very knowledgeable. Our cruise director was very good and kept things moving along nicely as well as making everyone on board feel welcome. My only suggestion for future cruises is to let people know that they offer transfers from the airport. My husband and I were the only ones who knew that they were offered only because we asked in advance. Also, I was surprised that the bar was hardly ever open while we were cruising.
