My husband and I were looking for a week long cruise because he prefers not to go away from home for longer period of time. We chose the Rhine Getaway with stops in France, Germany, and the Netherlands. The ship was very modern and easy to get around. Our cabin was comfortable with a great shower, but the best thing about the cabin was the service we received from the young lady who kept it clean and well supplied. The food was very good with outstanding soups. We enjoyed a tour of the kitchen as well as speaking with the chef. The Chef made Signature Pralines one night in addition to the dessert choices. We enjoyed our daily excursions which were included in the base price of the cruise. We had tours in or of the Black Forest, Colmar, Strasbourg, Heidelberg, Marksburg Castle in Koblentz, Cologne, and Kinderdijk. We especially enjoyed our tour of the Chocolate Museum in Cologne which was nearby the ship. The tour in Kinderdijk was delightful seeing old windmills and going inside one. Our tour director seemed to have boundless energy and kept us very well informed. She could always answer questions and was constantly snapping photos of the visitors and places we toured. This was our second Viking River Cruise and we hope to take another one in the future.
