This trip was recommended by our travel agent as it fit into a meeting that I attended in Basel. All aspects of the trip were delightful - it was busy however with daily excursions. We were blessed with good weather for most of the trip. The staff and especially the cruise director made the trip fantastic. The ship captain and crew lended to feeling of security and safety. The fellow travelers were for the most part compatible and easy to make friends. There were ample opportunities for excursions and often two or three choices at each port. There was a large bicycling group aboard that had their own agenda and apparently had a very nice experience. Three gourmet meals a day, including lamb chops for breakfast. The separate dinners were enjoyable, and the dining crew made us feel as family. There were no children on the ship and this was most appreciated in that river boats are not large and capable of entertaining youth!

Lively trip down the Rhine!

Cabin Review

Cabin 307
Nicely appointed and very functional with a large balcony and a very unique window system that could be easily closed and still enjoy the balcony.
Large cupboard space and the luggage easily stored under bed.
Nice in-room TV with multiple functions, including internet and cams.
Lighting control from multiple areas such as bedside was nice.
Bathroom although small was very functional with an ample walk in shower and two shower heads.
