We chose the Saga mystery cruise because it was the only one I could find that left in March which was to celebrate my husband’s and my own 75th birthdays. This was our first river cruise and I didn’t mind where we went and the idea of a surprise was appealing.

All we knew was that we flew to Prague and flew home from Berlin. Seemed therefore that the River Elbe was a good bet.

We were thrilled with the ship “Johannes Brahms” and found our cabin cosy and comfortable with a picture window out to the views. There was a nicely appointed lounge with (not particularly comfortable) sofas and chairs and a well stocked bar and resident pianist (although he was multi-talented and could play many instruments as well as sing).

The dining room was on the lower deck and it was fascinating to eat with ducks and other river attractions at eye-level. Food – well it goes without saying – too much of it – but boy was it good. Hot, varied, well cooked, amazing selection and perfect presentation.

Although we started off in Prague the first mystery was that we didn’t stay here. We were no sooner on and rested then it was cast off at 7.30 to our first destination in the Czech Republic – MILNIK.

    Unfortunately for some reason the remainder of my review has not been included - there was a report on the further 10 days of the trip but it obviously got left behind. You are right though it was dock and coach to the airport at Berlin. The rest of the mysteries shall have to remain where they are - I have lost the motivation to rewrite the whole thing, but it was a great trip and another will certainly be on the cards.

    ha ha - and like you I'd have thought that starting in Prague (or anywhere else) would include at least a walking tour there! But we enjoyed our own first river cruise last summer (different company) and are going back for another this year.
    Now - don't keep us in suspense - did you see a wee bit of Berlin, or was it 'dock and taxi to the airport'???
