Which river cruise Amsterdam to Basel or reverse?

Hello, we are considering a river cruise next July 2014. We would like to do the Amersterdam to Basel or reverse. Please tell me which is best and which cruise line is best. We don't care how much, but we want to get our money's worth, not just pay the highest price. We have never done a river cruise but have cruised many of the large ships in the Caribbean, Hawaii and Mexico. Thanks!

Met some Yanks at dinner last weekend who had a great time on a Viking cruise from Basel to Amsterdam but I know nothing first hand. In terms of direction I guess it depends on whether you want to see things go by from north to south or south to north :P

Basel to Amsterdam is cruising with the current so the ship goes a bit faster and this gives more time in cities and less time cruising. And vice versa. Take your choice.

Price is the same no matter which way you go. Perhaps decide first if you want to extend with a post cruise visit to either switz or Nl.
