This is our second Viking River Cruise -- Amsterdam to Basel on the Rhine River. Our mid-April weather was perfect -- in the 70's during the day and no rain. The food was wonderful, the crew was terrific (knew our names on the first day!) and the excursions were perect The narration by our Program Director, Diana, was great while we were cruising down the Rhine looking at all the castles -- yup, just like the advertisements! We enjoyed all of the "included" excursions and chose one optional -- Medieval Colmar and it was well worth it. Colmar is a delightful cobblestoned village -- right out of fairy tale books. We chose to ride on the "little white train" to get to the main square and it was the perfect way to travel through this village. If you're deciding on an option, try this one! We were busy everyday yet had time to relax and enjoy the scenery on the upper deck. Read Less

Was on our bucket list and was so impressed with all aspects of the cruise, staff, food, service and the excursions. One the nice things about the Viking River Cruise was that it had only 190 passengers so that you got to meet a lot of new people and it made it more friendly. Everyday brought a new adventure and the crew members always had smiles on their faces. They bent over backwards to be helpful and accommodating. The food was outstanding. Always nicely prepared. Wide selection of fare. One night, we even had the opportunity to visit the kitchen and select and serve ourselves. Beer and wine is always available for lunch and dinner and they are very generous and eager to keep your glasses full. I would recommend taking a few extra excursions that are offered. One night, we did dined in Rudesheim. Everybody had a great time dancing, singing to a German band's music and playing drinking games. Also, the extra tour to Colmar, France was moving and educational about our brave soldiers that drove the Germans back across the Rhine during World War ll. Again, it was so impressive that my wife and I have scheduled a trip on the Danube for 2020. If you ever get chance to go on one of these cruises, please take advantage, you will have many pleasant and wonderful memories for the rest of your life Alan Read Less

This was our first river trip and it was recommended to us by AAA. The air travel was on time and the tourist seating was comfortable and adequate. Our arrival time in Basel did not allow extra time to spend time in Basel, and we were excited to explore the ship and our cabin. Arrival on the ship was gracious, friendly and efficient, and we would learn that this is the way of the Viking Vidar. All the crew were there to make our journey most pleasant. The ship was pristine, exterior, public spaces and the cabin. Dining was outstanding, and we were pleased to have the option to eat with our new friends in the bar/terrace area occasionally. Both areas were outstanding, and we did have a great time with our noisy friends! Our rather "portly" Chef assured us "never trust a skinny chef", and he and his staff did a great job. There were enough activities on board to pick the rare "slack" times, led by the outstanding Program Director, and he was with us on our various shore excursions to insure we were in the right place at the right time. Included shore excursions were very good, and we were also pleased with some of the optional excursions we took as well. The Captain (young, handsome dude) was always gracious and ready to answer any question, the Hotel Manager was outstanding and the Front Desk staff were always very pleasant and helpful. Can't say enough good about our experiences on the Viking Vidar. We extended an extra two days in Amsterdam and enjoyed it thoroughly. Now we are trying to decide which one to do for next year, and are looking forward to it. Read Less
