Great Experience: Viking Embla Cruise Review by Belle Star
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Europe - River Cruise
The captain and crew reacted very well to lock strikes and other challenges to reschedule excursions to ensue we had the full experience.
If departing from Budapest, consider several days on your own prior to starting the cruise. Great city with lots to offer. Hotels can easily get you to the ship at minimal cost. Departing we used the ships transportation which made the final leg of the trip easy. Less
Cabin review: VB211
Cabin 211, verandah B accommodation. Nice cabin not too far a walk to the dinning room and front of the ship, We felt the additional cost for a Verandah A cabin (same cabin on the deck above) was not worth the money. The ship was often rafted to another ship with no view (except the people in the cabin next to you which was often comical). Additionally, the verandah A cabins received noise from joggers on the sun deck early in the AM. Either side of the ship is fine as the ship often docked on both sides depending on the port. The verandah provides additional space inside, as well as outside on the verandah, compared to the french verandah. People in the lower staterooms with only a small window at the very top of the room (the remainder may have been underwater) reported noise from the engines, etc. and most wished they had a view from their cabin. We heard no noise nor engine vibration what-so-ever. I would chose the exact cabin again.
