Great Expectations: Viking Idun Cruise Review by qraclaw
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
However the biggest disappointment was the fact that the upper deck was closed for most of the trip and what is more, was never going to be open on that particular cruise due to the numerous low bridges.
The dining room was adequate only if you got there early More enough. We enjoyed being with different people for most meals but there were many examples of the same parties wishing to "save the seat for our friends". The Aquavit lounge was far too small and the food available didn't display much variety. However the choice of wines was quite good and the speed at which our glass was regularly replenished was excellent.
But it was the most expensive holiday we have ever undertaken and overall was not good value for money. We could have driven down the Danube, calling at all the same places, taken City Tours etc in the larger places and bought a booklet as a guide and seen as much if not more for a good deal less.
It was a memorable trip, the like of which we had never done before and probably will not do again. Less
The stateroom (something of a misnomer) was small with no balcony. However, the bed was comfortable and with the sliding window open fully, offerred an unusual view of the nearby river !!
