Beautifully clean boat. Very attentive staff. Plenty to eat and with a very varied choice there was something for everyone. Whether hot or cold or a mix of both you could visit the buffet as many times as you wanted. To finish off a great mix of puddings/cakes and cheese. Entertainment was included by an accordionist who sometimes burst into song as we were enjoying our delicious lunch. The only downside, which wasn’t their fault, was that we couldn’t travel the length of the River as was advertised. We were warned beforehand but didn’t feel the need to complain as we were leaving Prague that evening!

Very nice tour of Magdalena followed. She was enthusiastic and knew a lot about the old city. Recommended!
