  3. Viking Baldur
We are cruise junkies but were looking for a very relaxed, small ship experience. The Viking team fulfilled all our expectations. We loved the way that we docked right in the center of each of the cities visited. Each evening, before dinner, all the passengers met in the lounge where the Cruise Director prepared us for the next day's port call and the Executive Chef talked about what he found in the market that day for the night's dinner. Lovely touch. Even when we had to switch ships at Passau (a frequent occurrence due to low water) Viking took us on an extended excursion for the day and then on to the new ship where our luggage was already waiting in the cabin. Viking made the change so smoothly that we had to look twice to make sure that we hadn't returned to the original ship. We enjoyed Viking River Cruises so much that we have now booked our next cruise with Viking Ocean Cruises.

One Cruise - Two Ships - Fantastic
