Has anyone taken this cruise and have any opinions to offer. Also our first time with Vantage so we are also interested in fellow frequent cruisers views and suggestions. This is our 1st River Cruise after over 40 Large Ship voyages so we aren't sure what to expect. Any help or guidence will be appreciated. Thanks

We took a Vantage cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam, starting up the Danube to the Main Danube Canal. We enjoyed the cruise thoroughly. You will probably be broken up into 4 groups, each with a tour manager. You will be given headphones to hear the guide without crowding around.
The food was very good, and we met a really nice bunch of people.
The trip story and pictures are on our website.
We are happy to answer any questions.

It serves no purpose to list all the cruises I have been on chronologically. Many of the lines or ships do not exist any more, or have been renamed. I have sailed on NCL,Bermuda Star, Regency, Royal, Silverseas, Mississippi Queen, Vantage, Marco Polo, Scottish Highlander, Princess, Victoria, Hebridean Princess, Paul Gauguin, Regent, Oceania, Cunard, Rembrandt, and Lev Tolstoy.

Hi Aekjk - We did that tour but started in Amsterdam and had a great time. Have done 5 trips with Vantage and loved them all - You will have a ball.

For Steve and Kathy - your report and photos bring back great memories. Nice job. Willard
