Viking Fontane 5

“Elegant Elbe”
Cruise review of Viking Fontane

I give the overall cruise an excellent rating. The river cruise ship was spotless and roomy. The food was above average and the staff was exceptional. The daily excursions were wonderful and the on board cultural enrichment programs were a lot of fun, educational, and well received. I especially liked the fact that the price I paid covered just about everything. I went on a land cruise last year with another company and it seemed as though every excursion, etc. was extra.

My companion and I purchased the pre-package and had two additional nights in Berlin and it was well worth the added fee. All of the sites and cities that we visited were great but Berlin, Dresden, and Prague were outstanding.

We had such a wonderful experience that within days of arriving home we booked our Viking River Cruise for 2015 Paris to Normandy. We're eagerly awaiting next May. I have raved about our river cruise to all of my family and friends. I truly believe that it is a great value. Less

Cabin review:

The room was just a bit too small.

Port and Shore Excursions

City Tour

Very informative and covered all of the city highlights.

Dresden Royal Palace (Residenzschloss)

The Green Vault was amazing.

Zwinger Palace


In retrospect, I wish we had added a post package in Prague also. There was so much to see and do. The city is beautiful, crowded, noisy, historical, and charming all at the same time. I hope that I have an opportunity in the future for a return visit.
