We chose this cruise from Basel to Amsterdam because of the diversity of the the ports and we were not disappointed. From the Swiss Alps to the below sea level Holland, every view and port were extraordinary.
From the moment we arrived, every staff member made us feel appreciated and special. Every local tour guide was knowledgeable, personable and entertaining! We loved hearing their stories and better understanding their history, culture and architecture.
The food was fabulous... breakfast, lunch and dinner!!! Chef Bobby will forever be remembered. His humor and passion for his craft were infectious.
We primarily cruised at night so we could get to our next location. But the Middle Rhine... included daytime cruising past numerous castles and other sites. We appreciated the Activity Director's running commentary abouttes we were passing.
Even though we had a standard cabin, it had plenty of storage to help us keep our belongings organized. The bed was comfy and the bathroom had every amenity we needed. The public areas offered plenty of places to sit, enjoy the view and visit with friends.
We went with Standard room which was well thought out for the square footage. It was clean and the furnishings were great. The only negative was it was noisy with traveling and going through numerous locks at night, I suspect that was magnified because we were at the water line so we sometimes scraped against the sides of the locks and when other ships passed the waves hit the side of our ship.
