Rhine Discovery (Rhine Getaway), Basel to Amsterdam, October 2015 on the Viking Sun. Just returned from the holiday. Second tine with Viking but as this was a different class of ship at a different time of year I’m not going to compare the two. In short, brilliant!! The Sun is an older ship but it was difficult to tell. Clean, light and comfortable with all public areas well appointed, 2 ...

Day 1 Basel: After an event filled week of everything Mercedes-Benz on a fantastic tour put together by the Mercedes-Benz Club of America and Daimler AG, it was time for the next leg of our adventure, a cruise down the Rhine River with Viking Cruise Lines. Fourteen members from our Mercedes tour group had booked the river cruise, so our tour organizer arranged for a van to drive us from ...

My husband and I took an incredible first cruise from Basal, Switzerland to Amsterdam on the Viking Sun. It was a first class experience from the minute we stepped on to the ship until the morning that we left. Each included excursion was lead by knowledgable and personable guides. The extra excursion we chose was through a winter palace and hunting lodge and was equally well done. We can't ...

Having been on a river cruise before but not really impressed with the ship we thought we would take the plunge and see what Viking could offer as we had received various brochures and seen the adverts. Our expections were exceeded as we were impressed from the time we booked. Viking looked after us every step of the way. The itinery arrived one month in advance so it gave us time to look at ...

After receiving many, many Viking catelogs, we finally made our adventure happen. Our expectations were surpassed. The Sun's service and the quality to detail made the voyage totally pleasant. The crew was always friendly. The excursions to castles and cathedrals were organized and enjoyable. Free time was acccomdated. The Sun Deck was the perfect to place to relax and watch the countryside of ...

This was our first River Cruise and it was for our 25th Anniversary. It was wonderful in every way. We stayed at the Hilton Doubletree the night before the cruise which was within walking distance from the train station for airport train, and a short walk to dock for the Viking Sun. Great hotel and staff. The Sky Lounge on the top floor gives you an incredible view of Amsterdam with a map so ...

'For a Rhine River Cruise, choose Viking'. This was the advice from friends for our first river cruise. We were not disappointed, 5 star throughout. We sailed on Viking Sun from Basel to Amsterdam in a very well equipped upper deck stateroom with French balcony. Every member of the crew was exceptional. We were greeted every day with smiling faces and offers of help to ensure we made the ...

This was our first river cruise and it was such a great experience that we have booked our next cruise on the Danube for August 2016. Although the cruise started from Rotterdam rather than Amsterdam, which we had not been informed about, this was quickly forgotten. The shore excursions were excellent and varied and allowed us to see many of the different places on the Rhine. The cruise along ...

BA were worse than useless in that they did not respond to the email provided dispite 5 emails 1 per day requesting ...
