the ship was great, the workers were great, the food was great. very expensive. can get the about the same trip for a lot less. when we signed up for this trip there wasn't hardly any company doing it. now there are a lot of companies doing this for a lot less.
the excurions that they offer as free are the same time as the optional ones that cost nicely. Germany was a long ride in a bus that didn't have air to get to berlin. I complained to the ship and to Viking management and got "sorry". for 14k I thought I would get more than sorry. no discounts and no rebates. the ship broke down on the next run, s\thank goodness for us.
I love the river cruises and always will. we only need a few more to complete Europe. never will go back on an ocean cruise with them.
entertainment was okay. the spa area was superb but the steam room and snow grotto broke about half way. the pool on the fantail was so great that it was my favorite place. the pools are never crowded if it's not real warm and Viking caters to the older group.
really good. no use to a balcony.
