  3. Viking Gefjon
Went on the new Viking Gefjon on the Danube Waltz. Loved the locations where we stopped, loved the bus tours around the cities, loved just sitting on the deck when the younger travelers went on other explorations, food was excellent, love the free wine or beer at lunch and dinner, personnel from tour guide to cabin attendant were above expectation. It was my fourth Viking Cruise and already looking for another seasonal special. Enjoyed having an elevator to help go up and down steps. Very comfortable in all areas from the reception area to the lounge. Would like to have the lounge camera show the entertainment instead of just the piano and when the tour guide showed slides would like to have seen them on our TV instead of just hearing her talk. Other cruises had a wider view of the lounge area and we could see the entertainment from the comfort of our room especially late in the evening when old people like us like to relax. Loved the optional excursions from the ship especially when lots of us have traveled with Viking before and have seen many of the locations we stop at. But always something new to see. The captain was very visible and was at many of the occasions and always welcomed people to see his control tower and had answers to all of our questions. It is always amazing how we go through so many locks up and down the river and many people are fassinated by this process

Loved sitting at different tables each lunch and dinner and meeting new people.
