I was expecting the food to be pretty ordinary but it surprised nicely. Schnitzel, Apfelstrudel and few other traditional dishes made for a great dinner. No commentary did make it a little tricky to figure out what was happening but moving through the lock was fun.

A thoroughly enjoyable evening. The dinner and entertainment were very good. However it would have been better if transport had been available to take passengers back to their hotels as several people experienced difficulty climbing the steep steps from the boat back up to the roadway.

There was some confusion just prior to boarding the boat but we finally were allowed on. The cruise was quite enjoyable and scenery was great, particularly when it got darker. Met some wonderful people. The boat was a bit dumb as the walkways down the sides could only accommodate 1 person which meant if someone was half way down the deck, getting past them was a pain. I enjoyed the food...but then I like any food. You can feed me dog kibble and I would probably like it! My wife enjoyed it though, so thats a good sign.

Very lovely.
The food was great, however we did think there would be classical "Blue Danube" music.

Even though we arrived in Vienna during the flood, the cruise was not cancelled. We got a cruise on the Donau-canal, and a short trip on the Donau through the watergate. Really interesting! Good food and nice with live music. :)

Prompt pick up and transfer was then spoilt by total confusion as to which boat we were going to be on. The operators staff were unable to resolve the situation for 30mins or more during which we were asked to transfer boats twice. Once resoled we had a very pleasant evening .
