  3. Viking Modi
This is the first river cruise we have take and are now truly spoiled. Viking was amazing...although we were particularly fortunately to be sailing on the newly launched Modi. Being a latte lover, I enjoyed being able to rise to a hot latte with fresh baked pastries every morning at no additional charge. Meals were excellent - good variety and portion sizes that allowed you to enjoy several courses without becoming overly full. The shore excursions were top notch. Each of the tour guides was very knowledgeable as well as friendly and entertaining. In Nuremberg there was a bit of a problem with the timing of the ship docking (delayed at locks) to pick us up after our free time in town. Viking didn't miss a beat and had us all herded off to a nearby pub for a complementary drink and Nuremberg sausage on a keiser roll. The captain was able to get special permission for us to board at a lock. Problem? What problem? We were all happy travellers. Marianne, our tour coordinator was exceptional. She had all the guides and busses coordinated and everything running smoothly. Not only that, she is a great singer and an entertaining "Dutchie" introducing us to the customs of the Netherlands. Only downside was that the top deck was closed to passengers for several days due to water levels allowing the Modi to barely squeeze under the bridges. Small thing compared to the overall excellence. PS: Anyone worried about being sea sick can rest assured that it is often impossible to know if the ship is even moving it is so smooth.

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom
Cabin B 205
What can I say about the en suite: in floor heating, undercounted lighting, soft close toilet seats; what luxury.
Cabin steward very attentive to our needs.
We appreciated that little bit extra room in the veranda stateroom vs the french balcony.
