Magical river cruise up the Rhine from Basel to Amsterdam

Crystal Debussy Cruise Review by happyrivercruiser

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2018
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Suite

We had an incredibly marvelous time on this 8 day river cruise from Basel to Amsterdam. It was magical. The food was delicious and plentiful as was the wine and spirits. The daily excursions were extremely well planned and very interesting. We did not take any excursions that cost extra money and were very satisfied with all of them. One of the best aspects of Crystal river cruises is that everything is included in your price unless you choose extra money excursions or extra money wine and spirits. In addition we got about $500 of credits from American Express, whom we had booked through. This paid for laundry and gratuities to the charming staff. The entertainment was excellent for making social friends. Martin Kaye did a great job of getting to know most of the travelers and meeting their entertainment requirements. The other travelers were charming and very friendly. We made good relationships with several couples. The demographics was about 70% American, 20% Asian and 10% European. The ages were generally 60-80 with a few younger couples. By the way, there were no single travelers on this cruise. There were 2 couples of women travelling together.

Cabin Review

Cabin S2 211

The cabin was very well planned. We had clothes for a 3 week European trip and they easily fit into the cabin. The luggage fit under the bed. We had a beautiful view of the Rhine as we cruised.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Notre Dame Cathedral

Very interesting. Then we walked around Strasbourg for another hour and it was very interesting and historic. We actually got lost but my wife speaks French so we found our way in the end.

We had a walking tour of this beautiful small town. It was fabulous


We walked around Koblenz and went on the cable car. The bus driver sent us in the wrong direction towards the town which wasted about 30 minutes of our time. However the town was beautiful once we walked into it.

Cologne Cathedral

Cologne cathedral is very historic interesting and impressive. We loved it. Then we walked around downtown Cologne and found it very beautiful
