  3. Viking Star
This was our first cruise in many years. We chose Viking because we had heard many good things about their river cruises. We thought the ship was awesome however we were disappointed in some of the side trips we took. If we ever went on another cruise, we would set up our own tours in some of the ports to get to the exact places we wanted to go and possibly have a smaller tour group. We loved the food on the cruise; the spa and the spa services were extraordinary. Our cabin was great and the staff was always there when you needed anything whether in our cabin or any other place on the ship. Part of any vacation is the people you meet and on a ship of this size it is very easy to make new and lasting friendships with people around the world. This trip was our 4th trip to Europe and before we always rented a car and stayed a maximum of 2 nights in any one place. We originally decided on this cruise so that we could unpack and not have to repack again for 13 days and also because we would see more of Europe by having someone else do the "driving". We thought your entertainment was great and enjoyed all the shows we saw. The disembarkation was a little fuzzy as we were staying an additional night at a hotel that we had booked, not an extension through Viking, and trying to figure the transportation to our hotel was confusing. In the end it all worked out well.
