We wanted a cruise that included Paris...so we decided on the Prague to Paris- Cities of Lights- twelve day cruise with 2 nights in Prague, 8 days on the rivers and 2 nights in Paris. Viking Odin was a well organized, efficient team. The crew was always striving to make our cruise the best ever.... And that is what we received. I highly recommend Viking. We enjoyed it so much that we have booked the European Sojourn next year, and of course Viking Air also.
When we landed in Prague, we were greeted by a gentleman with the red Viking lollipop at the airport ( we also had Viking Air). We were greeted at the hotel by Suzy ( our program director). She was with us for the entire trip, and went the extra mile to make sure every moment was perfect. The next day we had a 4 mile, very interesting guide through the high points of Prague. This was the beginning of one of the most wonderful ... A dream of a lifetime trip!!!!
The cabin was very nice. The 135 sq ft was very conveniently designed. We spent more time in the restaurants, or doing shore excruisions and very little time in the cabin. Someone that is on the large size may find the bathroom a little small, but I am a 5'4 in. 145 lb. and the bathroom was big enough for me, but a little cramped for my 6 ft, 250 lb husband.
Our tour guide for the Nuremberg tour was very informed about the history. He presented the history in a most interesting and non- boring way.
In Wurtzberg, we were guided through the Bishops ' Residenz palace. The enormous structure had many interesting rooms to explore and listening to the guide helped us to fully know the history of the palace. The paintings on the ceiling were the most impressive features to us.
The tour to Heidelberg University was a full day excursion. We had lunch with the students at the restaurant, and was able to discover how life of the students was at the university. The tour took us through the old town of Heidelberg with it's Rathaus, and also took us by the Hercules fountain.View All 11 Heidelberg University Reviews

An optional tour of Montmartre Hill was offered and we decided to take the tour the afternoon before we flew out the next day. We boarded a funicular and ascended the hill to beautiful Church of the Sacred Heart.View All undefined undefined Reviews
