Fabulous trip. Really enjoyed the sightseeing, the food and staff. Lovely holiday atmosphere with local musicians. My only complaint was that although we paid for return transfers from our hotel to the boat we had to make our own way back to the hotel. C'est la vie. That wouldn't stop us going again. I use a walking stick as necessary but I had no problem with the boat which was great as I was there to celebrate a special birthday.

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.
