    ” We celebrated our party aboard the "princess" on Saturday and I felt like a "queen"!!!We were extraordinarily pleased with the whole management!

At our age we have already visited or organised many a party, but never did everything go so smoothly and fit the bill so completely! The entire staff on the ship was great - friendly, quick, helpful; everything was dealt with promptly and on time!The buffet lift is a highlight in itself and the food was more than satisfying - it was simply delicious!! The technical things all(!) worked out, that also was a new experience for us :)) Especially nice and atmospheric were the lanterns and lights on deck in the evening - we had such wonderful weather and were able to enjoy the relaxed furnishings on deck in bright sunshine and with the full moon :)) Not only the cigar and cigarette smokers were overjoyed...We hope that there will soon be another opportunity to enjoy the rather excellent services of the Brander Schiffahrt.Much love and the most cordial regards from Vienna! “
