  • Cabin Type: Veranda Stateroom

Christmas market cruise. Absolutely magical! Dining experience was delightful and far beyond what I could have hoped for... from early morning coffee / breakfast to midnight snacks... servers polite, friendly, exceptionally accommodating. Dinners were quite memorable. Gourmet quality! Chateau Briand my favorite.

land excursions were well planned and informative. Headsets a bit uncomfortable, but they weren't always needed. I never felt that the field trips were too long or not long enough. Just right! Could walk and explore or sit in a lovely coffee house. I did both. I especially liked Budapest, Vienna and Salzburg. Not enough time to see everything, so will have to return. If I could have stayed aboard the ship and retraced the journey back to Budapest I would have! Post cruise extension in Munich was wonderful as well.

Again, the Christmas markets were unbelievable. 3 or 4 different ones in Munich alone. I couldn't get enough of them and each city had its own delightful character. Passau, Germany, one of the smaller markets, was one of the most enjoyable.

Have not sailed any other lines, but Viking would be very hard to beat!

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom

Cabin was very nice. Very modern and clean! didn't spend a lot of time there because of all the activities, but very comfortable and quiet. \internet excellent. available TV (news and entertainment) was very good. Bathroom tight but served purpose well. Loved heated floor! Views priceless.
