One of the strongest impressions you get of a cruise ship is the length of the deck. Because of river width limitations, boats can only be about 11 meters (34 feet) wide. There’s more wiggle room with the length. Our boat was a whopping 135 meters (443 feet) long. In the distance are the 9th-century ruins of Devín Castle, somewhere between Slovakia and Austria.
