Setter - Answered a Question by Marshall (26 Oct 08 16:05)

We did a Rhine cruise in May this year, on Viking Sun(Viking River Cruises) We have done about 20 ocean cruises, and would say at the outset that you ned to treat this as a totally different experience. We enjoyed it, but it would be fair to say not as much as we do "real" cruising. we were advised by our travel agent that Viking(along with Peter Dielman) were the most up-market of the river cruise companies and if this is so I certainly wouldn't want to go "lower down the scale" Compared with ocean cruise ships the cabins are small; I would suggest you go for a cabin with a "French balcony" as it makes the cabin feel more spacious. Bathroom was good and both cabin and bathroom well furnished and equipped and kept beautifully clean by our Stewardess. Food was reasonably good--not excellent but I dont think you can expect it to be within the confines of the river cruise operation. Our only complaint was that all passengers had to eat at one set meal time...no "between 7pm amd 8pm" just everybody in at the same time. That was usually 7pm (which we find early as we usually eat quite late) but on one occasion was as early as 6.30pm Luckilly that was a night when we were not sailing until after midnight, so we with some new found American friends went ashore for dinner. It is certainly an excellent way to see up close the scenery of some interesting areas and as you invariably berth near the centre of towns, it is so easy to go ashore and explore.We have not raced to book again(we have 2 ocean cruises booked for 2009 which puts it into context) but do intend to go again(probably with Viking ) to do the Danube cruise.viking staff /crew were all friendly and efficient and we had a truly excellent cruise director who gave v. informative talks and led shore excursions v. well. Hope this is of some help.Cynthia.
