This was our first cruise and also our 40th wedding anniversary. The Viking personnel were amazing, and the service exceptional. Most of the land tours were excellent- with great guides. Food and service were fantastic.
The weather was overcast and rainy for the entire week, but the crew made the trip very special despite the weather. The rooftop seating was closed for at least half the trip- so exercise in the form of walking was limited.
These are not huge ships, although they are very comfortable. The passenger totals are very reasonable - making it possible to recognize almost everyone on board, as well as almost all of the crew.
Our cabin was extremely comfortable and was cleaned everytime we left the cabin. the thoughtfulness of the crew was exemplary. I travel with lot is books, and found several Viking bookmarks kindly placed by my reading stand.
Meals were served promptly and beautifully- with wine, etc available constantly. The shipboard lectures were very informative and entertaining, too. The attitude of the crew was wonderful. They seemed to enjoy their jobs and the opportunities they had.
This was a once in a lifetime trip for us and we appreciated the attentive staff.
The Danube River levels were low at the time of our trip, but fortunately we just got by in terms of passage. Only once did the ship move ahead, and we caught up by tour bus, when the levels were low.
Our veranda suite was spacious ,comfortable and clean. Everything was in perfect working order. I enjoyed the sitting area and was thankful that we had it.
Our veranda suite was spacious, comfortable and clean. Everything was in perfect working order. Erika cleaned our cabin every time we left it. This was a treat for someone who is always cleaning, scrubbing, washing, etc at home- A great break!!
I enjoyed the sitting areas and was thankful for the extra lounging area.
