This was our third cruise on the Rhine River and we still enjoyed ourselves as much as we did in the previous cruises . First time was with Viking , second one with Gate 1 and this time with Lueftner on the Amadeus Royal ....More
This was a very peaceful setting. We travelled by ship (Avalon) up the Rhine Valley as our tour director (Katy) provided us with information on castles as well as other highlights along the way. We were provided with a map so we could follow along...More
We cruised the Rhine from Amsterdam to Basel on Viking Eir. This is a trip that we had planned to do for years. We are so glad that we did. It did not disappoint.
Beside everything you’d expect during a Viking River cruise, including luxury,...More
Virtually ever aspect of the river cruise was poor, the only positive was the Ships Captain that knew the way from Cologne to Switzerland. This was the first cruise of the Oscar Wildein August 2017. It was evident that there was a lack of staff...More
Just come back this is the 6th time we've been with this company and am afraid there won't be a 7th. They changed itinerary just before we left and then again when we were there think it was to save money on mooring fees. They...More
We were a little concerned having read some of the reviews about the MS Virginia. There was no need to too concerned as it is a classic case of you pay your money and you make your choice, the nature of a Shearings River Cruise...More
Just got back from a new year rhine cruise on the mv Virginia didn't know to expect after reading a few reviews didn't need to worry the boat was smaller and older than some but this gave it more character and homley feel we enjoyed...More
The food was not top notch. It was good but not great. We went from Switzerland to Amsterdam. My biggest issue is we went to see castles and the country. If that is your goal forget it. In 8 days we travelled once during the...More
MS Serenade 1 was my cruise in the Rhine, 21-28 December from Cologne to Strasbourg and back. The boat cannot be faulted, the rooms are very spacious, clean and tidy with are hotel requirements including a fully stocked mini bar.
The restaurant was tremendous, three...More
We sailed from Nuremberg to Basil on the Avalon Christmas Market cruise and enjoyed nearly every minute of the voyage. The extra coach trips due to being away from town centres and the killings in Strasbourg were a pain, but there was nothing Avalon could...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.
