  Gåssten Norwegian Fjords
Norway

We stepped aboard the beautiful Gassten with her wooden hull and spacious decks and were greeted by our Skipper Jamie and his mates Nick And Gunnar along with chef Dunkin , champagne set out waiting on deck with tasty bites . Bon Voyage out of Henningsvaer, a bustling fishing village that boasts the remote football field and plenty little shops to grab your Norway woolies . We woke everyday to the smell of breakfast and views so breathtaking you would find yourself just staring into the majestic fjords with their cascading mountains and rippling water gently slapping the hull. This boat is so sturdy I slept like a baby in the well appointed cabins with private bathroom for each , a must for our group of ten. They don’t skimp with fluffy bath robes and full line of toiletries and local cream available. Our skipper carefully laid out each day fulfilling our every need and ensuring all our adventures left us laughing and story telling around the dinner table at night , wine In hand Read More

  Merlijn Merlijn’s Magical Christmas Cruise in Germany
Germany

Our tour on the Merlijn was a wonderful trip, a great way to get in the Christmas spirit! My favorite part was relaxing on the boat and the delicious meals prepared by our hosts, and visiting all the Christmas markets in the cities along the way.

Merlijn’s Magical Christmas Cruise in Germany
Germany

What a trip! I felt like it was meant to be since we had just started talking about going on a Xmas market trip just before the email came announcing this maiden voyage. Every stop was memorable. Landschaftspark and getting to see the industrial side of the Rhine was an added bonus to the beautiful Xmas markets. We didn't think we'd want to spend too much time outside while the boat was cruising, but we even had some comfortable cruising time outside. The crew and the other passengers made the trip though. What a great bunch!

Christmas Tour was a wonderful experience. The boat was beautiful, the beds were super comfortable, the rooms were spotless, the food was the best I have ever had on a barge trip, and the crew were all sweet, helpful and fun. As is typical on a trip like this, all the travelers became friends and we became quite fond of each other in just four days. Sad to leave but made for such a lovely time.
I thought the cadence of the trip was vey nice and I enjoyed the tours. The tour in Dortmund wasn't overly exciting but perhaps there was just not that much to say about the area we were in. I did think it was valuable though because we needed to know where to go to see the markets, etc.
I really liked Munster, I wish we could have had more time there. Maybe plan to arrive earlier and have a few more hours before Captain's dinner?
Our captain took very good care of us, we felt safe and in good hands.
