Nice small cabin with a small porthole, you could lay in your bunk and look out the porthole at the passing scenery which was great for my wife who was suffering with cancer at the time and just needed the peace and relaxation at the time. A very nice relaxing quiet cruse. Tried to go on all the excursions did most of them as my wifes health allowed never felt pressured to do things we did not want to do very free and easy crew. Great food throughout the cruise and would highly recommend. The cabin was small which is what you would expect when river cruising however we where very satisfied with it and it also had a shower and toilet in a small ensuite, the staff who looked after the housekeeping where extremely efficient and looked after all are needs. The restaurant staff where ok and wine included with the meal however as I dont drink wine and beer and prefer coffee which my meals it took a bit of a lengthy discussion eventually involving the hotel manager before being allowed coffee with my meal rather than having to wait till the end of my meal to have a drink of coffee ! The tours where very good and the on board cruise guide came on most of the tours and walks which was a good idea as it was someone who understood our needs, wants and desires. The entertainment was very low-key with mainly the crew doing things like a talent show, as we where not expecting to be entertained it was a pleasant surprise to have this. Every evening there was some form of entertainment in the lounge again put on mostly by the crew, but my wife was to tired to attend so we happily spent the evenings reading in the cabin.
