  3. Viking Ingvi
We chose this cruise upon the recommendation of several friends that have previously cruise Viking. I will list the pros and cons for our 15 day journey below: Pros: 1. We were very pleased with the personal service provided by our Cruise Director, Rob and our Concierge, Tamara. 2. Most of the remaining Ingvi staff were friendly, hard working and appeared to really enjoy their day to day work. 3. Our Chef was amazing and the food exceptional! 4. Our sailing in April was a very good choice as the water level of the Danube, Main and Rhine were high so a ship swap was not necessary. 5. As the Viking Ships are small we established some close friendships as a result of our cruise. 6. Our daily stops were excellent and our included tours very interesting. 7. Our Cruise Director and Concierge accompanied us on the shore excursions even in inclement weather. 8. The included wine with Lunch and Dinner was enjoyed by all. 9. Our German theme night was truly fun! Staff dressed in German attire and exceptional German food delicious. 10. We did a 3 day pre-cruise extension in Prague that was truly amazing! Cons: 1. We did have our top balcony closed down for five days due to low bridges as a result of the high water level. 2. Our bedding was not changed for the entire 15 day journey. Not sure whether this was just our cabin or routine for the cruise line. 3. We went through 68 locks on this transit. At first the entry and exit of locks was interesting but near the end of our journey they were a great deal less so! 4. Our evening entertainment on most nights was a piano player. Unfortunately his accompanying vocals were those of a poor Karaoke singer so we did not spend time in the lounge after Dinner. All in all, we will definitely consider Viking for future travels.

Highly Recommended with Some Considerations!

Cabin Review

French Balcony
Cabin D 222
We enjoyed the French Balcony and did feel that we missed out on seeing anything as a result of not having a full balcony.
