The quality of the cruise was very good and would rate it 8 / 10
Food and service was excellent and would rate it 10/10
Cabin quality would rate 7 / 10 No problems with the cabin but on 2 occasions no hot water for a short period of time This occurred in the early morning and if we had been forewarned… More

There were no negative reviews other than we were not informed prior to boarding the cruise that we had to go barefoot at all times whilst on board

Beautiful landscape, efficient and friendly staff, excellent guide, tastefully decorated boat, delicious food

Generator bit noisy at night; engine also during day going

The itinerary and timeliness of transportation were good. There was a good balance of relaxation time with activities …and the chosen sites were very interesting. The food was good but not great. Our guide was very nice The drinks were a good price The scenery, sights etc were very attractive and interesting including some walk through small villages. ………………….

The cabins were very poor, old, poor condition, very small and not clean. Other areas of the boat were OK but not great. This is not a luxury cruise but the price is high - too high. It should not be described as a luxury cruise at international standards…The manager on board did not take criticism very well. Staff smoked on board sometimes right in front of guests.………………………
