Our first experience on a river cruise, after 18 ocean cruises, was everything we hoped it would be. The Eistla was well appointed and very comfortable and the size made it easy to meet and interact with most of the other guests. Because ... Read more

If you would like a poor river, bus and walking tour, book with Viking Cruise Line, I think. You will also get poor attitude and food at times. We were on 4 different ships which meant packing and unpacking every time with bus rides ... Read more

Although we've traveled extensively this was our first river cruise. And this is the only to go! We added a pre-cruise stay in Amsterdam. What a fun city! The canal boat trip, Rijksmuseum and tour of the red light district were excellent. ... Read more

This is a fabulous cruise in spite of low water levels and swapping ships ( bus from Nuremberg to Passau) plus having to bus into Budapest from Vienna! Our weather was wonderful, unseasonably warm, but no rain causes even lower levels! ... Read more

After a 10 day Caribbean cruise 15 years ago, my husband and I decided cruises were not our cup of tea. We were not interested in the casino, the big shows, the dress-up required, assigned seating, lying in sun around a pool (we live in ... Read more

Our 7-day Rhine river cruise was our first, after having taken many ocean cruises. As we expected, the experience is quite different. The river cruise affords the opportunity to see a lot more; the ship is essentially a floating mobile ... Read more
