Ship Facts: Viking Helvetia Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Viking Helvetia Deck Plans
General overall satisfaction
My wife and I enjoyed our second river cruise, this time on the Rhine, from Basel to Amsterdam. We did the Danube cruise from Budapest to Nuremberg in 2011 and found it was everything we expected and wondered if the Rhine cruise would be as good, as we found the expeditions, the food, the service and, above all the staff, of a very high standard. The Rhine cruise met all our expectations and the high standards set on the 2011 cruise were certainly equalled if not bettered this year.

For us, (being both well over 70), we appreciated having fellow passengers of around our own age (give or take 10 years or so). The absence of children was also a plus point for us.

We appreciated too the variety of the tours and the availability of more leisurely walking tours everywhere.

We were so pleased with this year's holiday that we have already booked for the Elbe cruise next spring.

Since our cruises were river cruises the ports are not listed but all on the schedule were very satisfactory.
