    Not enough extras included for the premium price. Airfare and airport navigation with luggage was horribly lacking. Again, this was a predominantly elderly group who shlepped their luggage all over the Frankfurt. Very poor planning By Collette..

    Our tour manager, Polina, was very good and tried to make the walking tours more accommodating for the slow and fast walkers. However she couldn’t control the time length of walking and the time spent in the town centers for browsing and shopping. Overall, it was very hurried experience.

    The next to last day of trip ruined whole experience. Got off boat at 8:30 am and was on road until 9:45 pm, when we arrived at destination. Then had to be out of hotel by 8:30 am to take flight home. Exhausting end to trip.

    Loved the trip, all but the flights. As usual, we had several bad experiences at JFK. Too many plane changes, could have been a couple of direct flights involved. Will probably make my own flight plans next time. Being aboard the boat was nice., not having to change hotels every 2 nights. All-in-all, looking forward to the next adventure.

    We had fun at a beer hall that we went to in one of the towns. We had also asked one of the guides for a local eatery to enjoy some of the local cuisine. Both of these excursions were very enjoyable. We did a lot of enjoyable walking in Amsterdam and the canal cruise was a great experience.

    The tour was fabulous! Seeing the sights on land or by water was simply amazing. Loved having the local guides and getting to see and hear about so much of the area’s history. Just wish we had had more time to stay in each port. There are so many wonderful memories, but my favorite one is the day spent on the boat seeing the castles along the Moselle River.

    We had great weather and all our stops had very good tour guides. Felt very safe and accommodated well on this river cruise. Lost a hearing aid and Ana our tour guide for the cruise helped in every way possible with the staff of the boat finding the aid between cruises in cleanup. Ana coordinated the return to our home within days after the cruise. She was a very good guide and helpful to us.

    As previously noted the Amadeus crew made the trip memorable and on board cabins were super. The meals and drinks were fantastic.Hats off to the chef and kitchen crew.The walking tours were great and were needed after all the food we consumed. I would take issue with the value of the optional excursion to Heidelberg Castle. We got a bus ride to the castle, got a historic overview but no tour of the interior. A 2 hour shopping opportunity in the area and back to the boat.Hardly worth $80 ea.Embarkation from the boat went smoothly and on the road again toward Zurich. The meal at the Black Forest clock outlet was great although food selection waned toward the end of the meal line. The Zurich Movenpick was another story, however.Upon arrival there wasn't enough staff to handle the bags. Fellow travelers unloaded their bags and took them up to their own rooms. The AC must have been turned off for the season as the rooms were warm but the common areas were cooled.I had to get our key cards redone at the front desk as neither card worked.

    I loved the river cruise because of being able to completely unpack my suitcase for the week on the boat. Highlights of the cruise were the afternoon sailing past all the amazing castles along the Rhine followed the next morning by the beauty along the Moselle River. I also enjoyed all of the excursions into the many villages and cities we visited. Each had its own ambiance.

    The cruise itself has to be the most incredible experience. However the overnight stay in Zurich was my least favorite part of the trip. Too much time on our hands there. Hotel was not prepared to handle the number of people staying there making the service, dinner meal and breakfast a nightmere.

    Everything was as expected. The only thing that could have been a little better would be a little more free time in some ports. Possibly the option of having lunch in the town rather that going back to ship for every lunch. Offer guidance back to ship for those opting for lunch in the town.
