Review summary

We bought the extra travel decision for flight and appreciated that. We did a ship swap due to low river levels- this is not a problem! IT was handled very well. Great people on the cruise - met nice friendly folks.

Our cabin was pleasant and worked well for us. My only comment: the bed was the very firm (hard).

Ship tip

Be ready for a wonderful trip. Bring your walking shoes. And casual means, most folks where jeans - which was great. Oct 30 sailing had weather in the 40-50's, which isn't bad, but we were outside 1-2 hrs at a time. Dress warm.

we stayed an extra night on our own and found Basel old town area a wonderful wonderful place to stay and explore. We did the Colmar excursion, which was interesting. And we did the Bruehl palace excursion which was GREAT.
