The Blue Danube River Cruise plus extension – 26th June 2019
Bedders | November 14, 2019 | Riviera Travel | MS Oscar Wilde
We have been on many sea cruises, but this was our first river cruise. There were the usual apprehensions of going on a smaller vessel, would the cabins be small, what about food quality, entertainment etc. I can only say that those fears were groundless. It became evident that with the long experience that Riviera have had, they have considered all eventualities, and made provision. The result was that we had an excellent cruise. From booking through Bolsover Cruise Club, to final accompanied farewell at Budapest airport, everything went very smoothly. Our cabin (318) was certainly not small, well thought out and proportioned, plenty of room. The food too was very good, plenty to select and varied, and the Chef will try to help you if you want something a little different. The Crew, led by Leslie, were as friendly and helpful as any we have experienced – and they all seemed to work together as a real team. The entertainment was well chosen, selected to express the local culture as we travelled.
One intention of the cruise is to give you a taste for the places visited, so it was quite an active cruise – the many places visited were all well chosen. I was glad that we took the extension in Budapest – it allowed us more time to see this beautiful city and surroundings, and with a great guide David.
As a result we shall certainly book another river cruise before too long.
