We did the river cruise from Krems to Melk and everything was great. The view was really beautiful with all the vineyards of the Wachau, the service was excellent and the food really delicious. The captain of the ship lent himself to take a photo with my 3 year old son who was super excited; I really appreciated this. And most of all, I am very grateful to the staff of get your guide who helped me change my ticket from one day to the next without making me pay any penalty. The whats up service works very well.

We celebrated our parents' 65th wedding anniversary. A region on the bow of the ship was reserved for the family (20 people) on request, so that we could celebrate undisturbed. The tables were beautifully set and decorated with flowers. The staff specially assigned for us was very, very nice and cooperative. The drive through the Wachau was very nice! Air conditioning in the ship would not have hurt, however. The 3 course menu was okay. However, the turkey meat served in the main course was very dry and not all tasted good. The vegetarian version of the menu, however, was successful. Overall, however, we all had a lot of fun and were happy about a successful surprise and an unforgettable day with our family. Many thanks to the organization and the staff on the ship !!!

Beautiful views, excellent cuisine and the weather was good. Ship recently refurbished in very good condition. The service is nice and helpful and not overbearing at the same time. I recommend it to everyone.
