I was fully prepared not to like this cruise and less than enthusiastically prepared for it. Upon arrival on board the ship I was grudgingly impressed with our stateroom. It was large and comfortable with a Juliet balcony and internet access. The bed and linens were plush and inviting. The meal seatings were not fixed but the majority of people... More

We booked the 5 day/ 4 night New Year cruise with Shearings, booking procedure and information excellent. We had paid extra for a larger ( one of only 4 ) cabin and it was worth it, some cabins are tiny. Unfortunately the shower room was minute, the shower was just over the toilet so when having a shower the toilet... More

Treasures of the Main and Rhine with AmaWaterways My fourth cruise with AmaWaterways and I can never get enough of them. I have travel in my blood and AmaWaterways always deliver. There are other river cruise lines operating in Europe and to be fair, their ships and itineraries look good, but this cruise line sets a higher standard and the... More

We went on the New Year cruise on this ship, and had a brilliant time. The staff were friendly, the ship itself was really nice, although a bit dated The dining room and lounge/ bar were pleasantly decorated though. The food was wonderful with a choice of three main courses. The cabins were surprisingly spacious for a small ship. However,... More

My husband and I took the Rhine River Christmas market cruise from Basel Switzerland to Amsterdam in December 2016. My husband has limited mobility - in his case, he can walk unassisted but needs moments to stop and rest (hip replacement one year ago). The cruise itself was as expected from how Viking sells itself (high end luxury type cruise).... More

We took a day trip from Cologne to this town on the Rhine. When passing it on the river there are a lot of old castles in this area. We didnt expect the town to be so picturesque. We parked along the road & walked in through the tunnel. We have visited quite a few towns on the Rhine &... More

We have just got back from our Rhine River Cruise with Newmarket Holidays on the Olympia. As it was going to be our first we were sceptical being just in our 50's but what a great time we had. We were lucky to have lovely people on our table for meals (table 21) and this made it for us. We... More

Having spent an excellent 8 day holiday with my wife on the Danube from Nuremberg to Budapest with Emerald River Cruises in August 2016 perhaps I may be or should be accused of bias in my holiday experiences with and towards Newmarket Holiday's 4 day Xmas Rhine Cruise, however having experienced an excellent 2015 Xmas Holiday in Jersey with Newmarket...
