  3. Viking Tialfi
I have been on a Viking Cruis previously and enjoyed it immensely. I wanted my husband to be able go on a cruise and he chose Rhine getaway!! It was enjoyed by both of us and we had a great time away as a celebration for our 40th Anniversary as well as for my husband's retirement fron teaching a year ago! We enjoyed everything about the cruise. It was enjoyable just looking out at the scenery while we were cruising. The Rhine is a working river and it was nice to see all kinds of boats cruising along. One of the highlights of the trip was the Top of Cologne Cathredal tour. It was very interesting and informative about the history of this Grand Cathredral! The view from the top was amazing and the tour finished just as the sun was setting. Well worth it!!! The people we met on the river cruise were very interesting and you could have a meal with someone different every day or have a meal with some of the people we found most interesting. The historical sites we visited were amazing and to think of how many years ago some of these places existed was mind boggling. We truly enjoyed our time on the cruise and everyone of the crew and staff were really wonderful and so welcoming. When we were away for the day it was nice to come back to the boat and see familiar faces to welcome us back! It was a really memorable experience for both of us and will look forward to going on another cruise in the future!

Cabin Review

Cabin 230
The cabin was wonderful! It was nice and comfortable and it was nice to look out on the river while we were cruising and see the different sites and towns along the river! People very friendly and would often wave from the shore or different boats on the Rhine river. It was nice to know who our cabin steward, John was. He was very helpful and was very prompt in cleaning our cabin. It was nice to come back from an excursion and see his smiling face and he always made us feel welcome. Everyone on the staff was welcoming and was willing to do everything in their power to make sure we had a wonderful experience.

  • Heidelberg Castle
    It was very interesting and informative to learn the history of this Castle and how it was built. Also our guide was very informative and told many stories about the Castle. It was also interesting to learn that our guide was originally from the US!
