The best cruise ever!

Sail Date: July 2012
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
Embarkation: Other
My husband loved everything about our trip with Viking! Their staff took care of everything: the flights, the ship, and the lovely places we saw. We were picked up at the airport in Munich, Germany, by a very friendly staff and taken to our ship, the Legend. The captain greeted us, took our luggage, and welcomed us aboard. We were provided with a buffet and waited for our rooms to be prepared. This gave us time to meet our fellow travelers. After our rooms were ready, everyone was personally shown to their rooms! Our steward helped us prepare everything. She, Adrienne, was a dream.
I must say that the chef and his staff were delightful and the food was mouth-watering, everyday, from breakfast to our evening meal. The staff was always smiling and acted like they couldn't do enough for us. David, Violetta, and several others were always helpful.
We traveled to Passau, Linz, Melk, Salzberg, Durnstein, Vienna, Bratislava, and Budapest. Everywhere we went, guides were More provided. We experienced many interesting places, with lots of history.
We travel through 11 locks, but only saw 2. We were asleep during the other passings. The lock near Budapest was simply amazing.
Every city was more breath-taking than the last; especially Budapest! Our ship traveled to Budapest at night; the whole city, on the hills, were lit up to show visitors the beautiful buildings.
Please book our journey with Viking River Cruises today! You will treasure your journey. Less

Cabin review: D114 Deluxe Stateroom with Window

Our cabin was on the bottom level, 114. Our room was the same size as the ones on the upper decks. It was quiet, the bed was very comfortable, and always clean!
