Viking Legend Cruise Review by reg.johnstone

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jul 2015
  • Destination: Europe River
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Stateroom with French Balcony

We sailed on the Legend from Passau in July and found every aspect of our holiday excellent.

The ship was one of the older ones in the fleet, but we found it well presented and it had all the facilities we wanted. We had not sought a balcony, and would not do so, since there was plenty of room on the full-length sun deck.

The itinerary was excellent - sailings being timed to optimise the time at the stop-overs. Going down stream, the night cruising was at low throttle and quiet. Obviously, Viking had managed to obtain the best of the city-centre mooring locations.

Throughout our holiday, the crew were excellent- efficient and professional, yet always having time for a little chat or banter. Their great personal qualities were the stand-out memory of our holiday.

On shore excursions were all good to excellent, though I think those who went to the optional (expensive) Mozart recital had poor value.

So good that we have already booked for next year.

HINT - location of stateroom on boat is more important than facilities such as balcony etc

Backroom staff deserve praise, since everything worked well, but we largely saw just the dining room staff.

A musician played in the lounge each night, and two nights when local entertainers performed were enjoyable.

Nothing much to find fault with, at all.
