This was our first Boat Bike tour

17 Oct 2019

This was our first Boat Bike tour. We were pleasantly surprised at the coziness (105 guests vs 2000 guests on a major cruise ship). The dinners were consistently delicious and themed to the country we were passing through on the Danube River. There was also nightly entertainment. Our cabin (promenade deck) always had lots of hot water for showers after a day’s biking. However, we heard other cabins had water issues. The temperature in our cabin was always nice, not so for the cabins on the lower decks. Communication from the company helped us properly prepare for the tour. We were contacted days prior to the beginning of the trip advising us of a change in itinerary due to low water levels on the Danube. We were updated daily by the cruise director (Andrejas) regarding alternate biking and sight-seeing schedules. Prior to every bike tour, we were briefed on the route, weather conditions, areas of interest and topography challenges (hilly or flat). All the routes were approx 36-50 km which is manageable for novice to experienced bikers. We did not feel that we were physically taxed for endurance or time. The age range for the guests was between 50 to 70, and many took the option to rent e-bikes. This tour on the Theodore Korner was the last one of the season (Sept 28 – Oct 12); the weather was pleasant for biking and the height of the tourist season had passed which allowed us less crowded conditions. The vessel is in need of a thorough re-fit to update the cabins, appliances (toaster), and reception. Flying insects everywhere on the ship was annoying, especially in the dining area.
