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 the Rhine was enjoyable and the weather helped to make the experience better than expected. The staff and service were excellent and everybody could not do enough for us, especially my wife who is a Coeliac. Her every need was catered for by all the restaurant and bar staff. The ship had all the facilities that we required and the quality of the cabins met all our expectations. We went on some of the additional excursions the best and most enjoyable being the trip to Mount Titlis during our stay in Lucerne after the cruise. Entertainment on board was relaxed and in pleasant surroundings in the bar was very appreciated. Overall the whole experience was a pleasure and would congratulate Viking on making our first cruise experience one that we will never forget.

The cabin was a reasonable size with very comfortable bed and adequate furnishings.The shower and bathroom facilities met our expectations and the cleaning staff carried out their duties to a high standard. The location of the cabin was excellent and was not disturbed by any noise .
