Excellent cruise down the Rhine yet overpriced

Sail Date: October 2013
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
Embarkation: Amsterdam

We were on the middle deck and the rooms were large and very comfortable. We really liked the huge window that opens half way down the wall. The bath was very large. It is covered with marble that is over the top. The room and bath were larger than Viking ships. Common areas are pleasant but no better than Viking. The staff were for the most part very good to excellent. The food at breakfast and lunch were similar to Viking, but the dinners were slightly better. Wine with meals is included and poured liberally.

The tour manager was a bit disorganized, even precipitating arguments with guests during port talks. The tour manager was difficult to listen to, and many guests missed important deadlines. They do not give overhead announcements, which adds to the impression of disorganization. Bikes were available at each port, which was a very nice feature. Shore excursions were very good.

Embarkation and disembarkation were simple and efficient. Several pieces of equipment More in the fitness room were out of order. The indoor pool went unused and was over the top. If you want the top of the line, this is it. However, the extra costs aren't worth it, unless you crave an indoor pool and floor to ceiling marble in the bath. Less
