Ship Facts: Viking Sky Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Viking Sky Deck Plans
Three European Rivers Not To Be Missed
The program managers and crew had every detail arranged and it all came off without a hitch.

Beginning with a four night stay in Paris (we added the pre-cruise extension), through the final

two nights in Prague every facet of the trip was enjoyable.

The panoramic city tour of Paris is much too brief if you have never been to Paris before. Even though

we had been there previously, there are always new things to see and discover in the "City

of Light." A motor coach took us to the ship with a stop in Luxembourg to see the city and the WW II

American cemetery nearby.

The ship "Viking Sky" is not one of the new "longships" in the line, but it was clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated, and a perfect size to squeeze through the multitude of locks which raise and lower the ship on this journey.

We boarded Viking Sky in Trier, Germany's oldest city then made stops in Bernkastel and Cochem on the

Mosel, a right hand turn at Koblentz took us on the mighty Rhine. The next ports were Rudesheim,

Heidelburg, and Rothenburg, Following the Main River we visited Bamberg and ended

the cruise part of the trip in Nuremberg.

Castle tours in Cochem, Heidelberg, and Braubach took travelers back to the Middle Ages, Wine tastings in

Bernkastle and Rudesheim were a treat. And the sights from the sun deck as we floated through

southern Germany were gorgeous. I never imagined that so many grape vines thrived on the

hillsides near the rivers.

From Nuremberg there was a motor coach ride through the Czech Republic to Prague.

Prague is a vibrant, interesting place with Hradcany Castle, St. Vitus Cathedral, and

the Charles Bridge.

Three delicious meals daily included enough choices to satisfy everyone. There were two meals in restaurants in ports which were included in the cost of the cruise.

I like the fact that all daily side trips are included in the cruise price and would highly recommend this

cruise and Viking to all.
