  3. Viking Astrild
I am a very fit first time Viking river cruiser. Our first contact was in Berlin with Bojan Bozic our Program Director. He accompanied us throughout our trip, very knowledgeable, helpful and always smiling. There were never too many questions as he always interpreted our needs. The excersions were very good and we were well prepared the evening before as to historical background. The Astrild was fantastic. It was very special being the first cruisers on the ship. Our Captain Josef Cvejn never gave us a rocky moment and he mastered the locks perfectly. Jochen Prigge, the Hotel Manager, assembled a very competent, motivated and friendly crew. Thank you Victor for your smile and morning cappucino. Zjanette, you made the best Mojitos, perfect service, many thanks. The kitchen was fantastic thanks to Igor and Lajos. And again thanks to all the crew that looked after us. Two very small critics, first there is no elevator for physically challenged guests, and when travelling as a single you must pay double fare.
