We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary on the Rhine Getaway and it was wonderful.  The ship, the tours, the crew, our fellow guests were all we expected and more.  Thank you Viking.  We hope to cruise again in the near future. 

Ship Quality
Very Clean and everything was easily accessible.
Food and Dining
Sufficient variety and good quality.
Service and Staff
Not the variety we have had on ocean cruises. The classical music night was not as enjoyable as it could have been.
Children's Programs Not aware of children programs.
Onboard Activities
Destinations and Excursions
We enjoyed all the excursions. Some glitches with microphones, but overall very nice,
Cabin / Stateroom
Need firmer pillows and top sheets for better comfort. Rooms small but adequate.
Basel, Switzerland
Strasbourg, France
The cathedral was spectacular.
Mannheim (Heidelberg), Germany
The free time in the town was great.
Rudesheim, Germany
Cologne, Germany
We had a great guide and the best tours of the trip.
Kinderdijk, Netherlands
Weather was cold and windy and the tour quite could have been louder, but a great place to tour,
