Sail Date: Jul 2016
Cabin: Standard Stateroom

We had done a Rhine River Cruise with Viking and thought this would be a nice trip in July with warmer weather that our last trip in November. We started with 3 nights at the Grand Hyatt in Berlin, which was far above our expectations. The Elbe was much quieter than the busy Rhine and we enjoyed much more than the Rhine. It was very relaxing to sit on the top deck and watch the storks, campers along the river and the fishermen. We had a Great staff on the board the Boat with no disappointments, Our room was small and at first glance we wondered if we would like it or not, but it became more than adequate and was very quaint. Meals were good, with plenty of free beer, wine, or soft drinks. Excursions were interesting and well run. We stayed two extra days in Prague and enjoyed every minute.

A special Thanks to Miriam Hinrichs and Jelo for making the trip memorable.

Cabin Review

Standard Stateroom

Cabin D

Cabin 110 was quite small with two single beds that could not be combined. We were worried that it might be too small, but it was more than adequate. The room had more than enough storage space for two large suitcases and camera cases. We almost always had WiFi and Television reception. The cabin attendant would have the room cleaned by the time you got back from Breakfast. Nothing fancy but more than adequate.

We had several afternoon lectures on places we would be visiting. In addition, we had a wine tasting and liquor sampling one day. Only one dining room, but you had many different choices for meals. Lunch and Dinner came with complimentary wine, beer and soft drinks and was basically unlimited. Almost every night we had piano music in the lounge. Several nights after Dinner we had local music, local dance or a German theme night.
