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 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.
