  3. Viking Astrild
I have had absolutely excellent service from the Viking staff...the excursions are wonderful, all food is superior, the accommodations are very, very comfortable. The shampoo, shower gel smells wonderful, I always try to bring some home with me...Last year I bought some of the gift packs onboard the ship for staff thank you gifts and everyone liked it very much too... I totally enjoy the relaxed atmosphere they provide for cruising, don't have any of the formal attire to have to pack and dress in. From the beginning to end, the staff and crew are friendly, knowledgable and willing to assist you in any task you bring them. This was my third cruise with Viking and I'm currently booked to go on another Christmas Market cruise this year from Frankfort to Nuremburg. I can hardly wait for the tim to get here so I can visit the Christmas markets, which they give you ample time for shopping and eating!!! I especially like the Christmas market cruises, as the guides can let us know which markets are the very best to go to. They also decorate the ships lounge and restaurants for Christmas that gives a nice festive feel. The kitchen staff do a special dinner one evening and we are invited to see where all the meals are prepared and sample many different recipes. On another afternoon, the chef gives a special recipe and demonstration on how to make it...This usually is done at a time when the area that we are cruising thru doesn't offer a lot of scenery. I love Viking Cruises!

Amazing cruising!
