Grand Treasures of Europe: cabin size and luggage

I am travelling Vienna to Prague on the River Ambassador with my elderly mother. While I have been assured that the cabins are of a comfortable size, I would love to hear from someone who has experienced these cabins. While moving around each other is potentially a challenge in limited space, the other maybe the storage of luggage. The Uniworld person I spoke to was not able to advise what happens to the suitcases once they are unpacked. It seemed if you got in early the staff could store them elsewhere, otherwise you popped them in the corner of your cabin...in 16 square meters? Mac

No worries...cabins are cozy, but very efficiently laid out. Once you unpack your suitcase it fits very well under the bed.have a great trip

Not sure if your ship has larger staterooms or if your category is indicative of a larger stateroom, but on the Duchess we had a Category 3 stateroom which we found a little tight. Part of the problem was the cupboard at the foot of the bed whereas other cabins have it closer to the door. I would recommend that you have your elderly passenger sleep closest to the bathroom. One tends to spend little time in the cabin in any event, and we were very happy with the quality - and the safe is a decent size.

Suitcases are stored under a portion of the bed both sides and unless it is an old-sized steamer trunk, you should not have problems. We bought smaller suitcases that (i) travel easier (ii) store easier and (iii) make sure we don't take too much junk along.
