For our first ever ‘cruise’, we opted for a river cruise to avoid any chance of rough seas! We also opted for a Viking river cruise on the basis that they seemed the world leaders in river cruising holidays. We were not disappointed. We took the seven day trip from Basel to Amsterdam along the beautiful Rhine, passing spectacular scenery including the many castles along the middle Rhine. We made the trip on the ‘Viking Sky’, shown in the photo. Our cabin was not quite as big as we had anticipated but it was very comfortable and the entire ship was kept spotlessly clean and tidy. The lounge, restaurant and other common areas were well appointed and the panoramic windows allowed for sightseeing from inside the ship when there was bad weather. The crew on the ship were, without exception, simply outstanding. They were friendly, efficient, and always anxious to please. The management of and arrangements for excursions from the ship were first class and the actual choice of excursions ideal. The food on board was very good, allowing a choice at midday of a buffet in the lounge or a sit down meal in the restaurant. Dinner in the restaurant was especially good, with, as usual first class service. The 24 hour coffee/tea ‘station’ in the lounge was much appreciated. The entertainment, both during the day (speciality talks, demonstrations etc) and in the evening after dinner, was in keeping with the general standard – very professional and enjoyable. The resident pianist and singer, Daniel, was excellent. This was our first cruise with Viking – it will not be the last.
