If you are going on the Rex Rheni, take a book such as War and Peace in case a shear pin breaks and you have to spend 54 hours in Koblenz waiting for repairs.

It is essential to read the brochure carefully and to query anything you are unsure of with Viking. I am just back from Rhine/Moselle on Saga's Rex Rheni which has "pullman-beds". Bad joke. Steel pressings 2'3" wide containing a solid lump of 'something' pretending to be a mattress. A shelf above will damage you if you bend forward to spread the duvet, sit down without thinking, etc. These ships are NOT like the Nile cruisers which have full size beds and plenty of space. WRITE TO VIKING !!! May you sleep well. Still, its a great journey.

Very interested to read this because I was contemplating doing a cruise on this vessel. I was suspicious of the "Pulman beds". I will take it up with Saga who charter this boat for all Saga cruises. I am 76 and really can't cope with an uncomfortable bed. Cheers.

We went on a Viking cruise to the Ukraine in June, the food was excellent,hardly any entertainment compared to an ocean cruise. Check your cabin size, the latest ships seem O.K. but our cabin was so small for two it put a damper on the holiday. It was the smallest cabin we have had in many years of cruising! V. Stockdale.

It is a very small place with a population is around 3500. It is an area situated at the base the Maritime Alps along the French Riviera.

Riviera Drinks Packages & S...

By Jill Johnson

Jill Johnson's blog

I along with a lot of people like to enjoy myself when on holiday and fab news (I think ) for all of their 2018 cruises with Riviera they will be offering drinks packages and cleverly planned too. With most River Cruise Lines drinks are included with Lunch & Dinner as standard, if you are a drinker or not and include Wine, Beer & Soft Drinks. However often my clients will tell me they dont drink or one of the party drinks and the other one doesn’t so this is false econom...

Its Launch time again

By Lee Johnson

Lee Johnson's blog

I have been in the cruise industry now for around 16 years and one thing that I always remember is the excitement over P&O Launch. Normally P&O would release their programme for the coming year in March / April time (May at one time I recall). The new Programme or brochure would normally be for Sailings April to end of March (so this launch following the traditional path would normally be April 18 to March 19 for instance).BUT there has been a dramatic change to them whereby they ac...
