Great to see the sights from a different perspective. Enjoyable cruise plenty of information, food and drink availability

Almost free of kitsch, but a wonderful narration of the traditions in the Advent season and over the course of the seasons. Unfortunately, despite the friendliness of the staff, a "very good" cannot be achieved because of the quality of the food/drinks offered.

We were very disappointed with the cruise. I previously lived in Wiesbaden for seven years and went on many Rhine River Tours that I thoroughly enjoyed. This was a special trip with my son, age 42. One of the ladies on board said she would tell us a story during the cruise. The story in German was done using a microphone and speakers. The story in English was not done with a microphone and speakers. We could not hear the story. Why was a microphone used for the German translation and not the English translation? We ordered brats during the cruise. Mine looked like it had been under a heating light for days. My son's was undercooked. We also ordered Rudesheim Coffee, another disappointment. I would not recommend this cruise.
