Elbe River Cruise: Viking Schumann Cruise Review by Flyboy43
Overall Member Rating
Elbe River Cruise
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
Most cruise stops were "quiet" (the whole river is compared to the Rhine or Danube) but interesting. This particulat cruise had about 60% representation from the UK (most others were Americans plus one Aussie couple) and were a generally older (average age probably 75-80), but very "game" and interesting group! We thought the age factor may have been due to the "easy" rating to the tours and possibly because of the WW II history connection to this age group. We ended in Prague which was fantastic, but crowded, as usual.
Ship was excellent - well-maintained and clean - and the staff was particulary More friendly and helpful. Our program director (a young Czech) was particularly notable. Food was good+, cabin was upgraded and was spacious and comfortable.
If you're interested in a cruise with a recent history bent in addition to the usual European history, you might find this one interesting. Less
Cabin review: A200 Standard Stateroom
"French balcony" was essentially sliding doors that had to stay closed because of insects! Good sized room with good storage, WC and shower and stowage space. Excellent locatio near reception desk, but noise not a factor.Read All Standard Stateroom (A) Reviews >>
