Cabin: Veranda Suite

We wanted to visit Amsterdam after touring Belgium War Graves in Ypres and surrounding districts; as it was a comfortable train journey from Brussels to Amsterdam we chose Viking Cruises which coincided with our travel plans. Having said that, we also researched the myriad of River Cruise offerings to our Australian populace and found Viking had the most attractive offer from the point of destination, comfort, cuisine and type of river craft.

With no more than 150 passengers on board we felt comfortable immediately on boarding at Vikings Private Moorings in Amsterdam Harbour. Our Cabin was "true to label" in every way from a two room suite with floor to ceiling glass walls for river views, king bed, plush linen and a heated ensuite floor for extreme comfort.

The cuisine varied according to the area of the Rhine we visited on our journey to Basel in Switzerland with attention to detail and backed up by wonderfully friendly and efficient service of our wait staff.Our cruise Director was also very knowledgeable and able to point out hidden aspects of the destinations we visited on our way up the Rhine. Local guides were very capable in their knowledge and also very helpful with directions throughout the different Countries/Cities/Villages we visited.

Cabin Review

Veranda Suite

Cabin AA

Excellent cabin of two rooms, not cramped due to full glass walls with river views. Light wood furnishing in modern Nordic fashion made it feel very comfortable and light.

Great TV/Wi fi,fresh floral display. Bed linen plush and luxurious ample cupboards space for two people.
