This was our first river cruise, but it will not be our last. We especially like the Beyla because of the smaller size. We met everyone with whom we traveled. The staff were friendly, attentive and very helpful. I ...

We chose `Poland, Prague and the Elegant Elbe`because it enabled us to visit Berlin, Prague, Auschwitz and Krakow with a river cruise included. River cruising is our favourite way to travel but until this new trip ...

Even with low water, an excellent trip

Low water in the Elbe meant that Viking had not sailed for 3 months. Half of our passengers, when given the opportunity, cancelled their trip, in the expectation that the ship would not sail. We chose to go ahead ...
