This was our second cruise on Viking. Our first river cruise (Oct. 2014) was the Romantic Danube and it was wonderful. Beautiful scenery, delightful crew and wonderful entertainment and tour coordinator. That is why we came back to Viking... Our second cruise was the Rhine River Cruise, Christmas Market Cruise (Nov. 2015) Even in winter, the Rhine is interesting and beautiful. The crew, again was lovely, The shore excursions were wonderful, the food was delicious and the kitchen staff very accommodating. We enjoyed our interactions with everyone except for the entertainment/tour coordinator. He was very unorganized and rather brash. His "frenzied" attitude was not professional and he never explained clearly where we should meet after an excursion. The evening entertainment facilitated by him was very unorganized. Also, the hotels were substandard in both Basel and Amsterdam. Tiny rooms. We had to personally upgrade so that we would be comfortable. Check-in and upgrades took half the day.

Lovely Way to Travel
