  1. We did not request a table size and we were preassigned to a table of 6. I saw very few tables for two, maybe three or four. I think you can request a table for two when you make your booking. We were very fortunate to have wonderful tablemates.
  2. Thank you. We left on the day you answered, but what you said is what happened. The guide on our first premium tour passed a hat for gratuities. Some people thought it was for the driver and guide. When they asked the driver if the guide had shared the tips, the answer was no. We noticed that on the HOHO no one tipped the guides, since they did not have the same guide after they hopped off and on. The excursion manager on the ship never mentioned tipping in any of her presentations.
  3. I found the WIFI very good from our cabin, Never had a problem connecting. Service was very good. Sometimes a wait between courses, but this gave us more time to get to know our tablemates.
  4. We are back from our May 23 cruise. We had a great time. Report on aft cabins: We had cabin 368 at the rear of boat. Noise was tolerable. At times during the night, it would get very loud. It sometimes woke me up.. There was a constant engine noise when under way, but it was not bothersome. There was no spray from the paddle and we loved sitting out on our balcony. The room was good size and bathroom was very large and beautiful. We would not book this cabin again. Food was excellent and my husband had two lobster tails every night. He is a picky eater, but enjoyed all of the appetizers, salads, soups and dessert along with his lobster. I enjoyed a variety of entrees and enjoyed them all, The entertainment was very good. The same three people every night, but varied programs. They were very talented. Ports were not very interesting and many times, nothing was open (Memorial Day weekend). We enjoyed our extra nights in Nashville and Louisville, The Quilt Museum in Paducah was interesting. The Lincoln tour from Brandenberg was also interesting. Any Questions?
  5. I understand gratuities ($19.50 each person) are charged to your account daily and paid at the conclusion of your cruise. Does this include the bus drivers of the Hop-on-hop-off busses? Thanks
  6. Has anyone stayed in one of the cabins on the back near paddle? Is it very noisy = pros and cons. Thank you
