“This was a departure for us, in more ways than one, as we’ve never sailed more than one river or for this length of time. Ten nights was the ideal voyage, and this cruise is the perfect mix of sailing time and great scenery with truly fascinating port stops. The ship’s cuisine is five-star, and the wine choice is amazing, as you might expect in this part of the world. Expect spacious and luxurious cabins, the ultimate sanctuary after a hard day’s holidaymaking.”
