Right from the moment it started, this cruise was first class all the way. The way the staff, beginning at the airport greeter, all the way through the cruise met and exceeded every expectation we could have had.
Every member of the Viking crew worked hard to make this a great trip. Had the opportunity to meet a lot of new people, eat great food, and see a lot of history with great tour guides. Everything was set up to accommodate the travelers comfort.
The ship was fantastic! Very clean, very professional, and decorated to make it feel as if you were still home for the holiday season. The staterooms were small. But they were designed with very modern features that truly seemed to expand the space. To be honest, we really didn't spend much time in the stateroom anyway, because there was always something of interest to do.
Cabin was very modern and made fantastic use of the space. This made it seem much larger than it was, even though the size was perfect for this type of trip.
The household staff kept it immaculate and made sure that anything we needed was provided, as well as providing some very nice extras, like chocolates and gingerbread.
The guide, Conrad, was very well versed in the history of Passau and provided a lot of personal insights. Great tour, great guide.
