Viking Njord Cruise Review by Jdrumsdad
- Sail Date: September 2012
- Destination: Europe River
All the guides knew their subjects and were able to answer any questions, though the sometimes repeated themselves a little too often.
Everyday had a new adventure and going to five different countries, each with its own personality was fantastic.
I would have liked spending more time in Vienna, just one day, and skipped Cologne. Cologne really didn't have much to see other than the Chocolate Museum and the large Cathedral.
I was especially impressed with the crew. I had a medical emergency in Germany and they immediately pulled into a dock with ambulance waiting withing 5 minutes of my wife contacting the staff. They sent along one of the crew to serve as an interpreter and arranged for a taxi to drive us to the next port to catch up with the ship and finish the cruise after being treated.

City TourA little too long. It lasted almost 3 hours without a break. Close to 10K walk was too long though informative. Several of the group kept asking about restrooms and we were told that it would come up soon, but never happened until end of the tour.View All 108 City Tour Reviews
Diamond FactoryLost interest about five minutes into the tour. Unless you are really interested in diamond production, skip.View All 13 Diamond Factory Reviews

I would also recommend skipping one of the onboard meals and going to New York Cafe in Pest. Wonderful atmosphere and great food.
