I was lucky. Thought I'd booked a small cabin for one, but ended up in a wonderfully spacious room that overlooked the Danube on two sides. Pity it was only for one night. It was great just sitting there watching the large fragments of ice floating by

The bathroom for the ladies would be much better with a few hangs for the clothes!!! The restrooms were ok but not super clean. I don't know if it was the same everywhere on the boat, by me blinds could not be closed.
