My wife and I selected this cruise because we had heard good things about the value of CroisiEurope and we really wanted to see the Rhine river region. Before taking the cruise we looked at the reviews on this site and other sites and everything was mostly positive - this was our experience as well. We stayed in room 362, which is on the upper deck, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who can afford the extra cost. The room was pretty spacious for a river cruise ship and the big windows meant you could lie in bed and just watch the river go by. We ate almost all our meals onboard. Breakfast was a buffet with breads, eggs, cereal, yogurt and fresh fruit everyday. Lunch and Dinner were a variety of things but it is worth noting (as it does on this site) that the boat is French so you need to like that food. There were many Spaniards on our cruise who didn't love the food (or the hours that they served it). Upon check-in you are assigned a table for the whole cruise, these are also the people you go on excursions with. I don't know what you do if you don't like them, we really enjoyed our table-mates. The staff onboard the ship was incredible. They did a great job of looking out for us and also were really accommodating to my wife who was 7 months pregnant. The one thing I have to warn others about is the itinerary - you need to make sure you manage your expectations around it. My wife and I knew that there would be lots of sailing and not a lot of time onshore and that meant that we were very happy with the cruise. There were others onboard who clearly hadn't done their homework and thus they were disappointed by the schedule. Remember, a river cruise boat isn't like an ocean boat - you don't have as much to do on the river boat. You need to bring your own entertainment or enjoy watching the scenery or you could be very bored. Read Less

We chose this cruise because we wanted a special celebration for our 20th wedding anniversary on December 28th. We flew to Baden Baden on a Ryan Air flight on the 27th and had organised an airport transfer straight to Strasbourg where we stayed overnight, our hotel La Maison Rouge was lovely, right in the centre of the old town. We had most of the next day to explore the city before boarding for our cruise. Unfortunately the Christmas Market had closed early due to the attack in Berlin but there was still plenty to see and do in Strasbourg and the local beer was definitely worth sampling! We were the only two English travellers on board and all the announcements and shore excursions were in French (most of which we managed to grasp) but we were assigned our own lovely personal translator Priscilla, all the crew and staff took great care of us and everyone really went out of their way to make sure that we had all the information we needed. The food was absolutley superb and the accompanying wines which were included in the cost of the cruise were just perfect and there was plenty to choose from, the dining experience was a real highlight of the cruise, we could not have asked for anything more. We didn't see the lovely views because the weather was quite foggy, on the plus side it means that we could do this same cruise and be surprised by the scenery. I would totally recommend this cruise, the boat and the itinerary to anyone, everything about it was just fabulous. Read Less
