This was a group trip with Lancaster Bible College from Pennsylvania, USA. The ship was so impressive from the moment we boarded with the welcoming crew and the beautiful new ship. We were ushered to our rooms and were just so happy with room 225. Loved the balcony and the views along the way were intriguing. Because the weather was chilly , windy, and cloudy it was not pleasant to be up on the deck much of the time, so our private balcony was really used. It blocked the wind so we could sit out and read and enjoy seeing the countryside. The food was better than most restaurants, and the service was exceptional. Every meal far exceeded expectations. We felt like we got to know everyone on the ship including those guests who were not with our group. The quality of the other guests and the crew was very impressive. One complaint was our group had a reformation expert along that was going to give us informative talk on the reformation every day. The crew could not give us any room or time other than the lounge at 7 am each morning. Read Less

Wanted to try a river cruise. Chose Viking because it had a 2 for 1, and special on airline tickets . Also, excursions were included. It is called the elegance of the Elbe river. Started in Berlin and ended in Prague. The ship requires at least 14 inches of water ; the Elbe is suppose to be one of the shallowest rivers in Germany, so Viking designed a ship specifically for this river. We did get an email that it couldn't go to a couple of destinations and would require a motor coach to reach the sites. We went down as far as it could, did a u tiun to go back to Dresden (not a bad place to end up in) loved the experience. It is the smallest, and there were about 96 people on the cruise. Met some fascinating people on the cruise. Excursions and guides were great. Staff ratio is 1 staff to 3 guests. Read Less
