MY FIRST RIVER CRUISE

Reviewed By: on
My friend and I have just returned from a 8 day River Cruise taken with River Cruise Line on board MS Switzerland 11 Had a wonderful time inspite of not very good weather. Every member of the crew were lovely. Friendly and approachable each and everyone including the Captain. Our waiter Jony was lovely and remembered our preferances, nothing was too much trouble. Marco, I threatened to take home in my suitcase, thank you Marco for taking our ribbing in the spirit it was intended. As for the chef and his team, not only was the food fantastic, but the presentation was excellent. Claus, (sorry if name not spelled correctly I had renamed you Sabastion for some unknown reason), thank you for making the tour to the boiler room so interesting, it is amazing what goes on down there. During the cruise we met some lovely people who we have exchanged email addresses from and hope we keep in contact in the years to come. David and Lisa from the River Cruise Line were available at all times and helped where ever possible with any quiery. The tours were a little hard where reduced mobility is concerned, but every help was given where required. Steve, our main driver and the others during the trip were also good. The entertainment was alright, but the same every night. Cabins were more spacious than expected and very clean. Lovely large windows throughout the ship. Always seats available for everyone.Housekeeping did a great job. Thank you to every one we encountoured, we had a great time. Searching hard for something negative to say I can only find one thing. Drinks were very expensive in my opinion even water and soft drinks. Not being a drinker a tiny complaint against so many good things. All in all I do think value for money.
