We disembarked today, and we're grateful to reach the end of our Amsterdam to Basel trip. The food was so disappointing. At least we lost weight on this vacation. The only seating available is the dining room is at large tables. We had very boring...More

You can really wear whatever you like. Some people are super dressed up, others casual!
Considering Viking Rhine cruise in Mar. or Apr. Opinion? Weather particularly. Been on Viking and Uniworld. Each has pros/cons. Weather's main concern for this trip.

weather is a gamble we went in april 17 it was cool in the morning an sunny and by noon it was perfect
Traveling South from Amsterdam to Basel or further, which side of the boat is better to ask for a cabin? My guess is port side, so you're not up against a dock when in harbor. Plus the port side faces mostly East. Make sense? Considering Avalon or UniWorld over Viking. Have done many ocean cruises, but this is our first river cruise
