Danube Iron Gorge Boat/Bike Trip

31 May 2023

Ron Cruikshank

We had an excellent time on board the Swiss Crown on our Danube boat/bike trip. The facilities were in excellent shape and the staff were super friendly. The food was top notch from breakfast, the items available for packed lunch, through to the 4 course dinners. Each of the cycling routes were well laid out and met our expectations for experience and difficulty. We were disappointed that we were unable to make it all the way to the Iron Gorge but realize that the weather will dictate certain aspects of any trip. A couple of recommendations: 1. The guide book was printed in both German and English. I think it would be best if these were separate books, one in German and one in English. This would reduce the amount of paper that each traveler would use and more importantly would provide for a smaller book and easier to find each of the relevant routes. 2. It would be nice if there was another drink package option. We did not participate as my wife drinks very little so it would not have been worthwhile for the convenience for me to order whenever I wanted. Unfortunately I do not have a suggestion for you and realize the challenge related to having one person in a cabin with the drink package and one without. 3. With pretty much everyone wanting/needing access to wifi, ubiquitous wifi throughout the boat and for the entire excursion really should be a basic service on the boat. We did encounter an unfortunate incident with the toilets on our row of cabins and as luck would have it, we seemed to be the most impacted by the issue. While the crew did everything they could to resolve the issue as quickly and effectively as possible, we were left with a lingering odor in our cabin for the last three days of the trip. We felt that the management on board could have been more proactive in making up for the inconvenience we experienced. If it wasn’t for this we would have provided a 5 star rating.
