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 chose this cruise because we wanted a special celebration for our 20th wedding anniversary on December 28th. We flew to Baden Baden on a Ryan Air flight on the 27th and had organised an airport transfer straight to Strasbourg where we stayed overnight, our hotel La Maison Rouge was lovely, right in the centre of the old town. We had most of the next day to explore the city before boarding for our cruise. Unfortunately the Christmas Market had closed early due to the attack in Berlin but there was still plenty to see and do in Strasbourg and the local beer was definitely worth sampling! We were the only two English travellers on board and all the announcements and shore excursions were in French (most of which we managed to grasp) but we were assigned our own lovely personal translator Priscilla, all the crew and staff took great care of us and everyone really went out of their way to make sure that we had all the information we needed. The food was absolutley superb and the accompanying wines which were included in the cost of the cruise were just perfect and there was plenty to choose from, the dining experience was a real highlight of the cruise, we could not have asked for anything more. We didn't see the lovely views because the weather was quite foggy, on the plus side it means that we could do this same cruise and be surprised by the scenery. I would totally recommend this cruise, the boat and the itinerary to anyone, everything about it was just fabulous. Read Less

This was our very first cruise of any type and it was absolutely magical. The food (Alsatian cuisine) was very good. The crew was wonderful, very professional and also very friendly. They catered to our every need. The accommodations were very comfortable. The scenery was beautiful and and so very peaceful. It was fascinating to watch as we navigated through 40 locks during the course of our cruise. Traveling down the inclined plane at Arzviller was a very memorable experience. We especially enjoyed the fact that the barge sailed during the day and was docked at night. The daily outings were very interesting. We went to a small chapel with beautiful stained glass windows by Marc Chagall, had a walking tour of Saverne, visited a family-run glass-blowing studio, explored two different castles, and dined on an Alsatian specialty at a local restaurant. We also enjoyed walking along the tow path a number of times while the barge sailed along beside us. The other passengers on our English-speaking cruise were all a lot of fun. An unexpected pleasure for us was getting to know the other passengers. We hope to take another CroisiEurope canal cruise in France sometime in the future. I highly recommend this cruise! Read Less
