The Majestic Rhine Cruise

“Service, food, and crew were impeccable

Glacier Express and The Majestic Rhine Cruise
16 Oct 2023
MULHALL, MARIANNE
4 stars
“Great way to see the country side and loved the accommodations. Train Stations were a bit hectic and stressful. I think the challenges of getting luggage and seating on the train was understated but found the trains to be clean and comfortable once settled. The boat was a wonderful experience and offered an intimate way to travel the Rhine and have the opportunity to make acquaintances. Some stops were a bit rushed and would have enjoyed more time to explore the cities on our own. Everyone was very accommodating and pleasant.

Lisbon & Douro Cruise

RICHMAN, AL
4 stars
“The scenery on the cruise was amazing, the boat was nice but rooms were a little small? The food while there was plenty left a lot to be desired. We left the boat to go out to eat once and would have done several more times if there was a restaurant near where we docked.
