Delightful Delling Didn't Disappoint
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
Besides the food and service (outstanding and always with a smile) and comfortable ship facilities, we had the most talented, knowledgeable and genuine program director we had ever met. If you are on a Viking cruise and Marek is your Program Director, be prepared to be dazzled as well as well-cared-for. He made the evening briefings and entertainment quite special and seemed to be omnipresent during the day. When it unexpectedly began to pour rain on one excursion, Marek magically appeared outside our bus with umbrellas! . Peter was our charming pianist who rounded out each evening with dance songs and a mix of tempos and mood. The staff often added their talents to the entertainment and even the Hotel Manager was willing to share his excellent voice and warm humor throughout the cruise.
Overall, this cruise definitely did work for us. It was small enough so we weren't overwhelmed by cavernous ship spaces, multitudes of people or the frenetic comings and goings related to a mind-boggling array of activities . Our fellow-cruisers were down-to-earth (older) people who just wanted to relax, chat, learn about the amazing cities we visited and have fun. It was a near-perfect experience for us and we can't wait to go Viking (!) again. Less
