2018 Rhine River

2018 Viking Rhine River Cruise

I have published a book which is a summary of our trip, titled 2018 Rhine River Cruise. Please be patient as this takes a few moments to load. If you would like to purchase a copy, you can find it here on Blurb.com.

Presented below is a photo journey of our trip on the Rhine River from Amsterdam in the Netherlands to Basel, Switzerland.

It all started on August 28, 2018 with a flight from New York’s JFK airport directly to Schiphol airport in Amsterdam. The cruise didn’t begin until the 31st so we had planned to enjoy 2 days touring the city. Well the 28th and 29th became one day of travel, leaving us feeling like zombies due to lack of sleep. On the 30th we finally ventured out and got to tour a bit, visiting the Van Gogh museum and taking a city canal cruise. On the 31st we boarded the ship and sometime during that night we left for our first port of call, Kinderdijk, Holland.

Below you can see links to all of our pictures taken during our 7 day journey, day by day. Enjoy your tour. We certainly did! (Note: Out of focus images have been included to help you get the feel for our journey.)
Simply click on an image below to see all for that day.

Taking a taxi to the EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg Airport in Bassel Switzerland, we began a whirlwind trip back to JFK in New York. Unfortunately we were not able to see anything of Basel, nor Paris, France. After these long International flights we are going to consider business or first class travel next time. And there is going to be a next time.

And now we’ll take a tour of the ship and some of the people and staff that we met. At the end is a series of images of pictures hanging in the corridor leading to and from our cabin. I thought that they were nice, and hence they have been included.
