This was our first river cruise and we loved it. The people of Viking were the most accommodating of any cruise we've ever taken. Everyone, no exceptions, was there to make the experience the best you've ever had. The only glitch was about half way through the cruise, low water made it necessary for us to switch ships to continue the cruise. We packed our suitcases and left in the morning for a bus trip. That afternoon when we got to our new ship, all of our suitcases were in our cabins ready to unload. VERY WELL EXECUTED by Viking. The daily tours were a challenge for people with limited mobility, but once again, Viking had tours to accommodate these people, us included. The dining room service was exceptional and the food was as good as any cruise line we have been on. The cabin was smaller than we expected and creative unpacking solved the situation. The "French balcony" was a good selection.

Cabin Review

French Balcony
Cabin D 230
It was the "Microtel" of cabins. Much more compact than sea cruises, but the constraints of ship size was the reason. By day 3 we were used to it. There was an adequate number of American power outlets for our needs.
