Dresser area (flat screen TV) in cabin
Generous bed with stand along side. Patio door led to nice seating area for relaxing and watching the water while enjoying a pre-dinner glass of wine.
German Night - a toast in Lederhosen to his grandmother's recipes!
German night spread
Erna on German night
German night - Black Forest cherry cake & adult beverages!
Chandeliers in Strasbourg Tariff House-Restaurant
Strasbourg Cathedral - Stone made of lace
Strasbourg Cathedral - every bit is slightly different
Mosel Heart - the way vines are pruned and shaped for the winter after a "fruitful" harvest
A chastity belt!
Cool statue looking out onto the river; seems to be making an offering
Terrific stroll on the last night, ending the delightful cruise.

While the superb advertising initially attracted us to a Viking River Cruise, the relaxation we experienced was out of this world. The level of experience and service of all aboard had all guests smiling and talking by the end; it seemed no one wanted to go home!

From my first contact with Francisco to book our Viking River Cruise to our final farewell with Erna (our cruise director) in Paris - we felt welcomed and valued. While some may think Viking cruises are a bit pricey - they don't see all the coordination and organization that goes on behind scenes.

We didn't expect to be met at Heathrow and facilitated through that atrocious airport. We were given a bright orange pass which expedited our getting to the front of the "passenger movement" lines. Without this kid glove assistance we would surely have missed our connecting flight to Basel.

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom

Cabin B

Just the right size; had everything we needed (to include 110 outlets and a clothes drying cord). Plenty of drawer and closet space, and suitcases fit perfectly under the bed.
