Great value, interesting itinerary, helpful staff, nice room. We will definitely go on Viking again. Their older ships are better than the new long boats because the rooms are a little bigger. The food is excellent and liked open dining. ... Read more

This was my first river cruise. I had never been to Europe. I had to go by myself as my friends could not afford the cost. I felt I got my money's worth and more. From the minute we landed in Germany I had no trouble locating the cruise ... Read more
