  3. Viking Lif
We chose this cruise because we had a stellar experience on a previous Viking Cruise, and because it covered many areas we hadn't been. The ship was as expected as was the cabin. Dining was off from our previous experience. This was something we really looked forward to. Good but not great. In some cases not even good. Entertainment was much better on this cruise, including entertaining lectures which we enjoyed the most. Our server Milan was the best, however most of the staff was excellent. Was sad to see the omelet chef let go in Budapest. We certainly liked him much better than his boss. All excursions were good as were the tour guides. Hated that we were transported to Prague via 8 hour bus ride including a food stop at a gas station. Really Viking, your guest are accustom to better than this.

Grand European was good but not Grand
