  3. Viking Bragi
This was our third Viking river cruise, and certainly not our last. The Bragi simply reinforced our love of river cruising. The entire ship's company were outstanding, and the best ambassadors the Viking company could ever ask for. From the moment we were met at the airport, to the time we were quickly checked in and escorted to our cabin was a welcomed relief. Like most of our cruise mates, we travelled a great distance just to get to Amsterdam, and we were completely exhausted after a long flight from Los Angeles USA. So, to be treated so kindly, and taken to our Explorer Suite, where we were overwhelmed by the luxury and magnificent view from our cabin was much more than we expected. Viking dinning is always a fantastic experience, if you are willing to enjoy foods you would never eat on a normal basis. The Bragi was no exception to the Viking concept of gourmet dinning. What an experience, everyday was a different dinning adventure for us, and we truly enjoyed the chef's recommendations, combined with our waiter's knowledgeable and delicious wine pairing. We recommend purchasing the the Viking drink package, so you can really enjoy your total dinning experience. The entertainment was fabulous, and personal. The Bragi has a relaxing intimate nightclub atmosphere, that is simply a great time to catch your breath from a full day of shore excursions, and enjoy the company of other quests and crew members. We tried to do as many shore excursions as we could in every port, and we enjoyed each and every one of them. Now, I can only speak of our own personal Viking experience, and we have not been disappointed with any of our three cruises. All are completely different; China, Russia, and the Netherlands, but still wonderfully unique memories for us. River cruising is not for everyone, but if you just go with the flow, it can be a very different and rewarding adventure. If you are the type of person who needs more time on shore excursions, my suggestion is to add land time to your travels either before or after your cruise, so that you can experience things at your own pace. You've already paid for your airfare, and you have the power to arrive and depart on your own personal timetable. Of course this really depends on the amount of time you have available for your vacation. The best part of this cruise was the entire ship's company, and we can hardly wait to someday set sail once more with the Bragi across Europe. Good traveling to all.

What a Great Voyage

Cabin Review

Explorer Suite
Cabin ES 340
Our cabin was magnificent, and we were completely spoiled by the Bragi's entire crew. This voyage felt like we were on our own private yacht. What lovely wonderful people!!!
