The ship is new and very elegant. Never feels crowded. Pop up bar on top deck is great when you have nice weather. We were in lowest level room and it was equivalent to higher rooms on other ships. Don’t be afraid to book the least expensive option. While small, it was just fine. Only criticism of the room is the toilet is a little difficult to use if you are large. There is a very large shower but a squished toilet and small sink. Beds extremely comfortable and they even brought me a temperpedic pillow when I wanted more support. We have been on Ama, Uniworld and Scenic. Food and wine on Crystal and Ama were equally good and consistent. I won’t go on Uniworld or Scenic again because the food was disappointing. Crystal is a little fancier on presentation than Ama but I think Ama overall was slightly better food. Both very good culinary treats! Crystal provides drinks all day vs Ama lunch and dinner only with having to pay rest of time. If you are a big drinker, crystal may be a better deal. Entertainment was good, with the violinist exceptional. I don’t expect great entertainment on river ship. Jed did a nice job with Elton John night. Service exceptional but I expected that from Crystal. They even anticipated some needs. Saw my husband had a c-pap machine and brought distilled water. Overall, great trip although the Rhine isn’t my favorite river. Strasbourg is beautiful and the UNESCO world heritage part of the river is lovely but the rest is ho-hum and dependent on good weather. If you only do one river cruise, I’d take the Seine any day over the Rhine. Read Less

We spent 8 days prior to leaving Basel in Switzerland....and spent an extra 3 days in Amsterdam at the end. They check you in while you are sipping on a nice Prosecco....We had EXCELLENT bartenders, shore excursion people, the guides were very good....The service and the waiters in the dining room were excellent.....The ship is the perfect size. We spent 3 lovely days on the rooftop with wonderful weather and view of beautiful scenery......The staff could not have been better, and hard to go home and not have my butler, bartender, and waiter to spoil me each day........You could always stay in town and there was always a later shuttle....the groups were never to big.....Did not know Crystal allowed kids, but there were 6 on board and they were well behaved....We have done Viking, and this is FAR better....Just having the all inclusive is key.......Wished Crystal had more river ships, but we have always liked the Crystal brand, so not surprised we were this happy.
