  3. Viking Ingvi
My wife and I started out by spending 3 nights in Luzern, Switzerland. This was a magnificent city with plenty to do and see. We then were bussed to Basil, Switzerland to board the Viking Ingvi. The Viking river boats are extremely special, as are the shore excursions. The crew was exceptional. We have never been on any cruise like this one. After Switzerland, we visited France, Germany and the Netherlands. Air travel to and from Europe from Chicago was a problem with the airlines, but we were able to still get to everywhere we wanted to go. Viking staff went out of their way to make up for flight delays. We have never had finer service anywhere before. River cruising is more intimate. We made a lot of friends and got to know almost everyone on the boat, including the crew. I recommend a standard suite with balcony on the starboard side if traveling from Basil, or on the port side if originating in Amsterdam. you get to see more. The one day cruising through Germany was a special treat seeing all the castles and visiting one of them. We highly recommend Viking River Cruises for the exceptional quality of their tours. Cheers, Joel & Bonnie
