We went with first time Viking cruisers and we all had a wonderful time. The time ashore at Berlin was a lot of fun as the winter markets were just getting started so it gave us something to do in the evenings. Prague was absolutely gorgeous and we look forward to going back again. Time on the Elbe was great also, being a smaller river it just felt like we were the only ones on it, which I ...

Former East Germany is beautiful, I felt a real connection there. The crew with Viking take such good care of you, we loved it!

I chose this cruise as it was going through an area of Germany that I remember from my childhood. Actually, I was born very far north Germany, but I remember going to Berlin when I was a kid. I have many tassen in my china cabinet and even some old pieces from Dresden - which I inherited from my grandmother. I wanted to go somewhere other than the Rhine and my daughter and I really wanted to ...

We chose this cruse because my husband is a WW2 buff and we had never been to Berlin. Also, we had been to Prague in the late 1970s and were curious about how it has changed. We wanted to do the British Isles that had been canceled on us when they moved the ship to China so this was our second choice. Matt was the best program director we have ever had. He was friendly, responsive, and ...

We were traveling to Berlin for a wedding and, since we would already be in Berlin, we decided to add a river cruise for after the wedding. After looking at the different offerings, we found this Viking cruise to fit very nicely with our schedule. In fact, we added 2 days on the front end to see more of Berlin before embarking on the Astrid. Viking staff were very accommodating and helpful in ...

Hadn’t been on the Elbe and wanted to tour Wittenburg, so this itinerary fit our ambitions well. The tour of Wittenburg was very well done. The entire trip was great and right up there with Viking standards. Food was excellent and the Viking staff very attentive. The stateroom was outstanding, with nice beds and bathroom facilities. The ship wifi functioned perfectly. It was nice seeing ...

We had heard that Viking cruises were the best. So once we retired we scheduled our first one. The service on these cruises is top notch. Every staff member went out of their way to provide excellent service and respond to any inquiries. The food was also excellent. We were pleased that the water level was high enough to allow our ship to traverse the Elbe River. The room was spacious for a ship, ...

One of our goals in cruising is to see places we've never been before. We are history buffs and are primarily interested in cruising for the destinations and excursions. This was our seventh Viking cruise (four on rivers) and eighth overall cruise. We'd received a refund for a cancelled extension on another cruise, and this cruise was about the right budget for that. Our excursions on this ...

Best Viking experience by far!

We were looking for something a bit different from the normal European rivers and the Elbe looked interesting. On the surface it's a typical Viking river cruise - great food, top flight staff, comfortable up to date ship, excellent shore excursions lead by knowledgable and personable guides. But there was something extra on this ship (beyond the best Cruise Director in the industry and the waiter ...

I have traveled with Viking many times and I am never disappointed. The moment you book your cruise you are cared for. The Berlin Hotel was in the center of town and was world class luxury. Our transfer to the ship and embarkation process was seamless. Our stateroom was well sized with a comfortable veranda. Travel around the ship is very accessible and all staff are very accomandating. The ...

Itinerary (2 days in Berlin, 5 day cruise including Wittenburg, Meissen and Dresden, 2 days Prague) appealed to us and didn't disappoint. Viking's cruise environment is (for us) a good mix of levity, entertainment and enrichment led by excellent program director Rik and enhanced by unadvertised extras such as an evening walk in Torgau, a lacemaking demo (and chance to try), a talk from a local ...
