Viking Delling Cruise Review by edleader: Exceeded Expectations
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
This was a first river cruise having previously sailed on several large ship cruise lines. It was a very different experience and one that I found quite pleasant. Here are some of the differences and you can determine if this venue meets your needs:
-only 190 passengers; older demographic but most were physically fit since walking tours are part of the daily regiment
-many repeat passengers
-intimate enough to get to know most of the service crew during the week
-crew (mostly Bulgarian) were outgoing and genuinely pleasant;
-no shopping spiels- no sales pitches about anything
-cabins, while small, were well laid out with high end furnishings
-meals were excellent; good choices and nicely presented; one seating at dinner and never felt rushed
-tours with local guides were informative and reasonably paced
-docked near central part of city at most ports which allowed easy access on and off the More ship; no tenders- no waiting
-entertainment in the evening ranged from a folk dance group to opera arias- not showboat caliber but culturally more interesting
-premium drink package was worth it for our group; not only do you have unlimited top shelf pours for drinks but there is a separate premium wine list that you an choose from that is far better than the house wine; we thought the better wine may the package far better
-tour of the wheelhouse should not be missed- must schedule an appointment
-no fitness facilities but you can do a lot of walking off the ship Less
