  3. Viking Baldur
Although we had a rocky start to our trip because of missed airline connections and consequently delayed luggage, we loved the accommodations at the Hotel Movenpick in Amsterdam. We had been to Amsterdam previously, and we were very happy to have the extra couple of days before the cruise. We walked to the dock and checked in on the Viking Baldur. We are veteran Viking cruisers, and we found our cabin to be as lovely as ever. Comfortable beds, nice amenities, the veranda - all excellent. The food was spectacular; the service outstanding. Our cruise director was knowledgeable, entertaining and quite competent. We ran into some lock delays on the rivers, and the Viking crew did not miss a beat in arranging alternate plans for our shore excursions. We particularly loved visiting ports we wouldn't normally have traveled to if we were on a land tour. The time in Nuremberg was extraordinarily haunting in re-visiting Nazi history. The optional activities were varied and wonderful. We have always enjoyed our Viking cruises in many parts of the world. We recommend them highly. The value is terrific. You can't go wrong!

Perfect European Sojourn!
