This cruise fit nicely into our schedule and offered us a link to friends we would visit in Capri following the end of the cruise. We were delighted by the variety of events - lectures, excursions, tours - offered as well as the first-class service aboard the Kvasir. The cuisine was excellent as was the dining service. The knowledgeable staff provided us with suggestions for amazing attractions to visit that were off the beaten path in Amsterdam that we would otherwise have never known existed. Making new friends among the other guests added another valuable dimension to the trip for both of us. The comfortable lounge area facilitated our meeting other guests and sharing the Kvasir experience. As this river cruise was our first, we were pleasantly surprised at how quiet the ship was and how smooth the ride when moving between ports. The well-designed stateroom was more than adequate for us and the veranda made for comfortable views of the passing countryside. Our overall experience on the Kvasir was amazing and we are already planning our next trip.
