    Great River Cruise

    9/2017 Amsterdam to Budapest
    Full Review
    Overall the food was good, but the daily menu could have had more selections, and sometimes the food was too salty. We also enjoyed the dining experience on the upper deck, which had a different menu. Unfortunately, we made reservations and they were cancelled by the staff. We felt the music entertainment on board could have been better. Overall, the staff was great, and our waiter (Paul) made our experience very enjoyable. Our stateroom staff was excellent and pleasant.
