Interesting itinerary but miss almost half of the journey's views with ship sailing almost every night. Shore excursions mostly too short to fully enjoy. Need to have more interactive group entertainment in order to meet fellow travellers who tend to be in cliquey groups predominantly from North America. Cabin drinks package very limited, no alcohol but freely available otherwise. 66 river locks tedious. Organisation generally very good. Cruise Directors excellent. Staff service mostly excellent but there were a few exceptions. Quality food and wines themed to countries visited, but not always to one's taste, but there are alternatives.
Tips for other travellers
Right sided cabin far inferior to Left in terms of river views/sites of interest, docking etc - should cost less! Category 7 though far better than lower decks
