My wife Nancy and myself have been cruising very actively during the past decade... the problem being that we've had to deal with a dwindling selection of exotic and historic ports as time has passed. We do not want to give up the cruising lifestyle and saw the accessibility of river cruises to ports we;d yet to discover an interesting alternative.... so we decided to give "Viking" a try. I'm actually using their free wi-fi (as well as one of their computers) to write this on.

We booked directly onto the ship from our plane, many folks did a "pre-cruise" package... we chose to stay after the cruise, not having the time to do both.

The "Gullveig" (meaning "Golden Goddess") is but one of a fleet of 50 Viking vessels. The ship is clean, well staffed, and very acomodating. As a port intensive cruise most activities are on land, with Viking supplying clean, well run busses and tour guides at each location. They supplied us with a great wireless headphone system so we could always hear the tour guide.... really well done "Viking".

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom

Cabin F

Compact, but neat.

Port Reviews

Regensburg

Large, many food choices, and more shopping than you'll ever need. The most medieval city intact in Germany.

Nuremberg

The heart of the Nazi empire with all of the fascinating history that goes along with it.
