    Excellent value cruise.

    Very enjoyable and relaxing holiday. The ship's crew were excellent, as was the food. If you went on the tours you often didn't have the chance to walk around the lovely river towns which was a pity. The only negative aspect was the fact that we usually tied-up at the furthest mooring from the town/city (due to cost presumably) and this prevented some of the less mobile passengers from enjoying the resorts fully.
