  3. Viking Atla
We started on the trip on the Jarl river boat because there was a problem with a river lock that kept our original boat the Alta from making it to our starting point. We were not happy to learn after day two that we would have to change ships part way through our river cruise. NO PROBLEM Viking did everything in there power to make it as easy a switch as they could. The problem was beyond their control. We found the food to be very good, the staff to be very accommodating, the tours to be excellent. The program director was very informative about the different cities we visited and Organization was top notch. I thought this would be somewhat laid back on a river cruise, but we kept very busy pretty much of the time. All the transportation on the ground was in very nice buses, and the tour guides that Viking provided did an excellent job telling us about the history pertaining to the area we were visiting. We stayed over in Prague for three additional days after the river cruise having Vikng make the arrangements. The Palace hotel was fantastic, and our stay in Prague was Wonderful. This was was a very nice trip that I would recommend it. We had read a lot of mixed reviews on this cruise and cruise line. I think a lot of opinions depend on how picky you want to be. We found everyone working on the ship to be very pleasant and helpful.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Stateroom
Cabin E 106
Cabin was an ok size, cleaned every day. We had no issues with the size. The tv had a variety of movies, however Internet was not as good as home.
