  3. Viking Astrild
This was our first River Cruise and we had relatively high expectations when we arrived. Viking and everyone involved with the trip exceeded our expectations. From the moment we landed in Berlin to our departure from Prague, Viking took care of our every need. The accommodations, staff, guides, food, etc. were all fabulous. Loved the small boat atmosphere. It allows you to get to know your fellow cruisers. Made some new friends. There was a good mix of planned activities and free time. We could opt in or out of whatever suited us. Having local tour guides on the excursions made an amazing difference in the depth and breadth of information, history and personal perspective we received on each outing. Every person on the staff went out of their way to provide for your every need. Their attention to detail was amazing. It was such a great experience that we booked our next River Cruise a couple of weeks after we returned home. Can't wait for our next trip in 2017.

Over the top GOOD!
