We did the Rhine river cruise, Amsterdam to Basil. We had never been to Europe and had never been on a river cruise, so this was the best of both. The cruise was excellent, everyone very courteous, helpful and professional. The food and service were all amazing.The shows and games lots of fun. The tours each day in luxury buses were very well organized and fun, learned a lot about the culture and history of the countries we visited. All the folks were so nice! The meals were amazing! And many choices, the wine flowed freely, usually from the areas we traveled through. The only complaint we had, was that the ship had changed the location of embarkation and we weren't notified by e-mail until the night before. We had spent an extra day prior, in Amsterdam, and had not gotten the e-mail on our phones. So needless to say our poor cab driver had a difficult time finding the correct location for us to board. And there was a bit of a language barrior. We were't the only ones that day, that had this happen to them, but the ship graciously compensated us. And no harm was done. And we had started out in plenty of time that day to find our boat. So be sure to check your phones and emails to keep abreast of changes. Or have someone one at home do it for you. I and my traveling partner, would indeed do this again, in a heartbeat!

Fantastic!
