I wanted to arrive before embarking to see the tulips in bloom and to explore Amsterdam.. Food was fine. Did not care for the included wines. Service was very good. The leisure group excursions were greatly appreciated. In summary, I felt the cruise to be consistent with other Viking cruises we have enjoyed. The trip to the Windmills was terrific. The bar staff was exceptional. Some inexpensive appetizers would be welcomed. Basel was a dud, and required going elsewhere. We had been to Lucerne, which we greatly enjoyed, but chose to end in Zurich. Zurich, with its old town was well worth seeing. I enjoyed all but one excursion, and would have preferred a bit more time in Salzburg to get a feel for the culture. A guide of the Rhine castles we passed would have been nice. Liked the opportunity to dine with other guests in town. The tourist train was a hit.
