7 Night Rhine Getaway Northbound (Basel To Amsterdam)
Sail Date: April 30, 2016
Ship: Viking Alruna
Cabin Number: 333
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 2 years ago

The views throughout the cruise were great. Smooth sailing.  Superb service and clean ship and staterooms. Staterooms very comfortable.  Enjoyed the view from the room.  Excursions were well planned and appropriately described as to how strenuous the activities would be.    Would have enjoyed additional time in some cities and post excursions.

A LOT of food. Great presentations. Enjoyed the German feast the most.

Onboard Activities

Would have liked more on board activities. During sailing time (especially during the daytime) there were not any activities offered.

The few nights of entertainment were great, however, would have liked more entertainment and not just geared towards 60+ age group.
