A Most Civilized Way to Travel
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
The food and waiter services were excellent, the staff could not do enough for us. The chefs excelled themselves at every meal. They even provided us with piping More hot soup and crusty rolls at midnight on our return from an excursion to a concert in Vienna. The range of food was amazing. We dined on local specialties throughout our cruise. Our days were filled with interesting and exciting excursions and our nights with fascinating entertainment.
The trip covered the Danube, Main and Rhine rivers. We stopped each day in a new city or town. Viking staff accompanied us on all our excursions so we were able to enjoy the experiences to the fullest knowing that they were there to assist if required. We really felt at home after the rough and tumble of 6.30am starts and rushed breakfasts of our bus trip. The range of included excursions was good as was the range of optional excursions. We were able to explore the towns each day as we progressed down river. We collected hundreds of photos of local people, buildings and places. We saw a wide range of historical buildings, castles and churches as well as the astonishing scenery of the rivers themselves.
To sum up, Viking River Cruises is a very civilised way to see the sights of Europe. We would heartily recommend a river cruise to anyone who is contemplating a holiday. Less
Cabin review: D
We had a D cabin. This class is on the lower deck and does not have a balcony. It has a large picture window but it is near the waterline so some views are restricted. The cabin size is quite good with reasonable facilities. The only comment I would make is that the cupboard/drawer space is quite limited. Suitcases store out of the way under the beds so they do not reduce storage space. The cabin service was very good. Bathroom facilities were a little cramped but no worse than on cruise liners.
