Cabin: French Balcony
Windmills of Kinderdjik, Netherlands. Beautiful included excursion on the G

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and my husband's birthday on this cruise. We extended our trip with the pre cruise in Budapest which was a wonderful experience. We also extended with the post cruise in Amsterdam and Belgium. The whole trip was very enjoyable. Viking had every detail covered including a ship swap because of very high waters on the rivers. The swap was effortless on the part of the passengers but I know how hard the crew on both ships worked to make it that way. The best part was the Cruise Director, Marek Snelley changed ships with us !! Marek was a huge reason that our cruise was so delightful. He is personable, funny and extremely capable of taking care of the unexpected.

This was our second Viking River cruise and I am sure we will be booking another cruise soon.

These cruises are geared towards the older crowd. Our ship's median age was about 60. With no young people onboard our 24 year old daughter would not have enjoyed this as much as we did. A River cruise is much calmer and more intimate than ocean cruises. The emphasis is on learning about the cities visited. The tour leaders are all very knowledgeable and personable.

Cabin Review

French Balcony

Cabin D

Excellent! Plenty of room for two people. All our luggage (4 cases) fit under the bed. We loved the balcony with chairs to sit and enjoy the scenery.
