Cruise Review by csmrtd1

Cruise was great, , ship was very nice, staff was outstanding.  I would suggest taking this cruise from south to north.  This would give you more time in port, however don't miss a tour n Amsterdam.

The nice thing about river cruising is that there are a maximum of 200 guests which makes all things , including meals much more manageable.

The food was great as usual.

Nice and relaxing by Valeryand

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We sailed from Amsterdam to Basel in the end of May! It was a very nice and relaxing vacation. We stayed for 2 days in Amsterdam before cruise. And I recommend it highly. Not only because Amsterdam is such lovely and very different city. But it also helps you to get over your jet lag, that is, of course, lf you fly from US. The ship is great, very clean, contemporary interior design, done in pastel pleasing colors. State rooms are tiny, but very comfortable. Service is impeccable, the cru is wonderful, just terrific people, everyone of them. Soooo pleasant and extremely accomodating, it looks like they absolutely love what they do. FOOD! Food is fantastic! Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Coffee and little baked snacks are always available for you in a lobby. We enjoyed all inclusive excursion, and took 2 optional, Mercedes Benz factory (Phenomenal!!!) and Town of Colmar(Magic). The only thing I object is the timing of the excursions. Much much too early! And the ship most of the time does not live until very late. To me, that was the only detrimental point. At night, after dinner in a lounge, it is very nice to relax, have a drink, listen to the music and dance a little. You don't feel like going to bed early. Getting up in the morning at 7 am is not my ideal vacation. Of course we did and went to see every beautiful place, I think we have not gotten more then 5, 6 hours of sleep. This is the only thing I would change.  If it were up to me. In Basel we also stayed for 2 days, and it is good idea too. We were there before, but to come such a long way, it seemed not right to go home straight from the ship. Altogether it was very enjoyable trip. I am sure you,ll love it just like we did!

Above expectations by stevesexplore

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

This was our first Viking cruise (previously used Avalon) and our groupof 16 was delighted with the service, crew, ports, and food.  Rooms, as usual on a river boat cruise, are very small but you shouldn't spend that much time in them anyway.


Many of the tours guides will probably go into more detail about the sites than you want, so do not be concerned about going out on your own.

We rented a car in Strassbourg with another couple and did a fantastic wine tour on our own.

We'd go again.

Viking is very casual. It was cool to cold in Europe and raining several days. Just dress in layers and bring a rain jacket of some type. Viking provided umbrellas for every cabin if desired. Lots of walking if you take the included excursions. Demanding but not overly difficult.

Bring very casual and comfortable clothes, and, of course super comfortable shoes. The streets are all cobble stone, very uneven surface, sneakers would work the best. Wear layers, so you can easily remove something or put on, as in the morning it can be plain cold, much warmer later on in a day.

because of our age..wife and I are 73.. we would have appreciated a little more lounging time. we wanted to see everything and liked the idea of 1,2,3, ratings of guided tours, but perhaps during tours we would have a during an extended tour (2+ hours) allow breakaway groups.
