We booked the Romantic Rhine River Cruise on the Avalon Imagery II 14 months in advance. Unfortunately, the water level in the Rhine was too low for the...More
Our first experience with Viking was extremely disappointing. It turned out to be more of a bus tour with excursions to the boat. We called 2 days before leaving on our trip to check on the water level in the Rhine. Viking told us there...More
Interesting because low water levels disrupted the itinerary. In spit of the disclaimer on travel documentation (the will be no reimbursements ....) Gate1 bent over backwards to maximize the experience for travelers. Every time there was a change it cam with a bonus or a...More
Below, is the (slightly edited) feedback sent by me to Riviera - it says most of what needs to be said and saves me re-typing a lot of the information. Were it not for the quality of the ship and the ship's company, I would...More
BEWARE!! Uniworld let a whole ship full of passengers board a "Castles on the Rhine" river cruise ship in mid-October knowing full well the Rhine River was IMPASSABLE. The first full day at the Captain’s dinner we were all told the cruise was OVER! One...More
We had the bad luck of sailing when the river was low, what we did was nice, but missed some parts. The dinners were terrible on the AMA boat - Amareina and the meals are supposed to be part of the cruising experience. Their boats...More
My husband and I went on the Saga river cruise from Basel to Nuremburg. This is not a route that should be taken if you like relaxing in the sun, cooling off in the plunge pool or playing the large chess game as for 3...More
I just returned from a Viking Rhine River Cruise Basel to Amsterdam. We also added the extra 2.5 days in Lucerne. I traveled with 3 other friends to celebrate my friend's 60th birthday. We LOVED the cruise and the extra days in Lucerne! The staff,...More
I commend the Kitchen staff of this vessel. They make serious attempts to improve from the dull standard "international buffet" fare and western styled meals, to produce a buffet and dinner truly for International tastes. There was chicken rice, laksa, and even soya sauce is...More
We traveled from Amsterdam to Basel on an Avalon cruise, and had a wonderful experience. Castles and cathedrals are the highlights of this cruise. Strasbourg was beautiful to see, even in the rain we experienced. The views from Heidelberg were spectacular, and there was enough...More

It depends. We enjoyed the french balcony but really didn't get to use it all that often. The weather was very hot during our trip so we needed the air conditioning. We loved sitting out on the top deck with friends so... More
It depends. We enjoyed the french balcony but really didn't get to use it all that often. The weather was very hot during our trip so we needed the air conditioning. We loved sitting out on the top deck with friends so we used that more often than just sitting in our room. Also, if you left the patio door open while in port, you ended up with bugs in your room.
Personally, I think off peak would be fine. All the excursions happen rain or shine.
