We were impressed with the Captain down to the dishwashers on the ship. The cabin was ample for our stay. The heated bathroom floors was an extra. The tours and guides were experienced and very knowledgeable. They were priceless when they ... Read more

We have sailed with Viking previously (Christmas Markets of the Danube) 3 years ago, and in fact, on the same ship. The ship hasn't changed, but the crew, and attitudes, has. This trip we opted for deck one (cabin 110) and the cabins are ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it is the 'castles' tour on the Rhine River. Also we had not been to Amsterdam and wanted to spend a couple of days there. We picked Viking because we had heard such good things about it. We were not ... Read more
