The boat only has 68 cabins, and so the dining room was able to accommodate everyone in a single seating. Eating was fairly regimented with a set dining time, and we were all given allotted seats. At breakfast, you were presented with the menus for lunch and dinner and had to choose what you wanted to eat from a choice of a meat, fish and quasi-vegetarian dishes. The trip was arranged through tour operator Page & Moy, who have a selection of holidays that are arranged specifically for members and supporters of the National Trust, who also benefit financially from the arrangement.
     In the evenings there were several lectures, covering such subjects as Baroque architecture and Austria and the Hapsburgs.
     The other alternative was watching a vintage film on the television in your cabin. I don’t usually think of taking a radio or CD player with me as there is usually one accessible.
     Unfortunately, this facility is not provided in the cabins, although to compensate there is a pianist playing background music in the lounge.
     This is definitely for people who want a leisurely holiday, while at the same time covering a lot of territory with the minimum of effort.

Page & Moy features a wide programme of river and ocean-going cruises, plus escorted tours – including special interest breaks – and rail journeys in Europe and worldwide.
