This was our first river cruise with Viking, and it couldn't have been a better experience. We were met at the airport by our Viking representative and taken to our hotel in Paris. From that point on we were taken care of completely. At all times at our hotels in Paris and Prague, there was a Viking representative available to assist with booking tours or just giving directions. The Odin was very nice - probably the best cruise ship we have experienced - and the crew was friendly and attentive, and the meals were excellent. This was also our first trip to Europe, and we really enjoyed experiencing all of the Medieval castles and small towns along the rivers. If I had to find something to complain about, it would be not having enough time in each port. If you go on the available tour in each port (which were excellent), then you wouldn't have enough time to explore the village completely. I would give up one of the ports to allow more time for the others. However, we enjoyed it so much that we booked another one as soon as we got home for next year.
